Systems integrator and retail distributor Pro Technology is on course to almost double its sales in 2006 as demand for its project-based services continues to grow and the company reaps the rewards of its international expansion. The Dubai-based company saw sales soar 71% in 2005 and predicts that full year sales for 2006 will grow by a whopping 92%. While Pro Technology did not announce a specific sales figure, Jamal H. Maraqa, managing director at the company did admit that it runs into tens of millions of dollars. During 2005, Pro Technology’s enterprise storage solutions arm entered into agreements with a number of high-profile customers including the UAE Armed Forces, Bahrain Ministry of Education, UAE Air Force, Dubai Municipality, MBC, Impact BBDO, Almal Capital and Sharjah Free Zone. New clients added by its retail distribution operation included Dubai Duty Free, Plug-Ins, Jumbo and Virgin. “2005 was an exceptional year for Pro Technology, with revenues touching new highs and an array of significant new agreements signed with prestigious clients,” said Maraqa. “This remarkable growth was driven largely by the unprecedented IT boom in the Middle East, particularly in the UAE, which has emerged as the technology hub of the region. If our performance during the first quarter of 2006 is any indication, Pro Technology is well on track to improve upon last year’s feat by posting a revenue growth of 92% for the year.” Pro Technology opened increased its international footprint in 2005, opening offices in Saudi Arabia and Iran in addition to its points of presence in Jordan, Libya, Sudan and the UAE. The company is also currently working on an agreement to establish an office in Qatar. “Pro Technology is focused on expanding its reach by having a direct presence in major regional markets. Saudi Arabia and Iran are two of the largest economies in the region and amongst the fastest growing IT markets, and our expansion into these countries will allow us to secure a strong foothold in these vital markets,” Maraqa added. “Pro Technology has partnered with some of the world’s foremost IT companies and we will continue to leverage these strategic alliances to provide breakthrough solutions to our clients,” he concluded. Pro Technology currently works with 18 leading international brands in the Middle East and the Levant including Apple, HP, IBM, Dicota and Symantec.
