Emirates Model Building Maintenance (EMBM), a provider of total integrated facilities management solution, set up its new headquarters in Abu Dhabi. His Excellency Mohammad Abdullah Al-Jarman, CEO and Chairman of the Board of Emirates Model Buildings Maintenance LLC (EMBM) and General Manager of Emirates Transport, inaugurated EMBM’s new office premises at the Global Ascent Business Centre in Mussafah, Abu Dhabi, on 14th June 2010 in the presence of 150 guests.
EMBM was founded in 2009 and was established in Abu Dhabi through a business partnership between Emirates Transport and Model Building Maintenance Company (a subsidiary of ETA-Ascon Group). The company now has branch offices across the UAE.
Clients, customers, suppliers, and staff members of both shareholding companies attended the occasion, which, according to general manager Bert Schmid was "well overdue after having moved into the office in March 2010".
EMBM was formed to target the still somewhat nascent facilities management market in the UAE and, in particular, the high-end clientele such as government departments and agencies. EMBM provides its services to more than 840 mosques under the General Authority of Islamic Affairs and Endowments in the Abu Dhabi Emirate and Al-Ain City as well as more than 90 schools and centres of the Abu Dhabi Education Council (ADEC) in accordance with a three-year contract. The company currently has more than 1,700 employees.
In a speech during the opening, His Excellency Al Jarman said: "EMBM is still new but has shown that it is one of the most promising and fast-growing companies due to its high-profile management experience and staff members who enjoy both skills and operational competency. For these reasons, EMBM has become a model to be followed in terms of quality and provision of services. It has become the favourite company of its customers."
Al-Jarman pointed out that the rate of customer satisfaction throughout the last three months exceeded expectations as it reached 97 percent during May,
