Introduction Oasis Investment Company, the holding company for the Al Shirawi Group of Companies, was founded on a passion for business. From the very beginning, we embedded a sense of pragmatism in the culture of the Group. It is this pragmatism that has not only seen us succeed through the most difficult of times, but has also allowed us to achieve greater success during times of economic growth. Our journey of transformation from a small trading house to an industrial complex, and then on to becoming a conglomerate comprising of trading, industrial, distribution, contracting and service industries, has seen its fair share of trials and tribulations. But we can honestly say that today our 8,500 employees are richer in experience than their counterparts. The foundations of the Group are rock solid. These foundations, as for all our companies, were cast in the United Arab Emirates, but today our companies look at the world as their marketplace. In this age of globalisation, we continue to grow at breathtaking speed.

Speed is a virtue that the Group stands by at all times. The successful induction of the next generation into the business has allowed the Group to retain the advantages of remaining a family concern, but at the same time has enabled us to act with speed when it comes to hiring top grade professionals. The Group has been built on the premise of sheer hard work. We have progressed this far by believing in our values and never shying away from putting in the effort needed to grow a business. Our values – Excellence, Transparency, Compassion, Honesty, Empowerment and Discipline – are inculcated in every one of our employees. For us, the journey has been a long one, but we see it as just the beginning of bigger things to come. Our next generation is now fully equipped to take the Group forward to unimaginable heights.

Emirates Printing Press LLC Emirates Printing Press (EPP) is a multi-award winning printing company based in Dubai whose reputation for quality, service and reliability extends far beyond the Middle East. Over almost four decades, EPP has built and maintained one of the region’s leading ‘onestop shop’ printing establishments, providing a comprehensive range of services to the publishing, advertising, packaging and marketing sectors. EPP’s dedication to achieving the best for its customers through the quality of its printing received the ultimate accolade in 2010 when it won the top prize in the prestigious Sappi International Printers of the Year awards – a first for the printing industry in the Middle East. The Sappi elephant trophy joins an array of other regional and international awards that EPP has won over the years for outstanding work in magazines, books, brochures, catalogues, annual reports, directories, calendars and luxury packaging. This success is directly attributable to the company’s policy of continuous investment in its plant, equipment and people. At its main site, covering about 275,000 sq ft in the industrial area of Al Quoz, Dubai, EPP deploys the latest technology and control systems at all stages of the printing process – from repro and pre-press through printing to finishing, packaging and dispatch.

The Gallus takes quality printing and finishing to a new level by combining the advantages of roto gravure, high definition flexo and roto screen printing in one machine. EPP’s Gallus press is configured with four gravure and nine flexo printing units, plus in-line cold and hot foiling, embossing, varnishing, lamination and die cutting. This state-of-the-art machine is also fitted with a fully online quality inspection system that will detect any defects in its printing operation. Another careful investment was the installation of the two latest Heidelberg Speedmaster 6-colour machines (XL106-LX3) for conventional printing with inline coating and extended delivery. EPP’s latest acquisition is the most recent example of the its careful and astute investment in technology that is designed to provide its customers with continually improved quality, flexibility and turnaround. With an array of sheetfed and rotary presses from some of the world’s leading manufacturers, EPP has the right machine for every requirement – from trade journals to glossy magazines, high-quality illustrated books and distinctive luxury packaging, as well as display and point of sale collateral.

From April 2012, EPP is also operating from a nearby branch factory of around 62,000 sq ft that it set up to accommodate its new Gallus multiprocess printing press.

Arabian Oasis Industries LLC Founded in 1976, Arabian Oasis Industries (AOI) is best known for its specialised engineering services, provided to a varied list of industries in the UAE. With more than 25 years’ experience in manufacturing dished heads, AOI is the largest producer of dished heads in the GCC. AOI manufactures a world-class range of dished heads – 2:1 ellipsoidal, torispherical, hemispherical (crown and petal construction) and toriconical heads – as per ASME and other codes for the world market.

• The plant is accredited by ASME to produce dished heads marked with the “U”, “U2” and “S” stamp symbols. • Forming is in accordance with UG-79 & UCS 79 of ASME Sec VIII Div 1 & 6.1.2 of ASME Sec VIII Div 2. • Dished heads are cold formed or hot formed and normalised. • AOI tolerance and acceptance criteria are stringent as compared to ASME. • Welding operators are qualified as per ASME SEC IX and as per individual specifications. • WPS and PQR meet the requirements of ASME SEC IX and individual specifications.

Its quality system meets the requirements of ISO 9001:2008, duly certified by Velosi Quality Management International Limited.

World Record In Dished Head Business AOI has invested in the world’s first cold spinning machine, which is capable of cold forming dished heads from 80mm thick plate. In 2007, the company successfully commissioned the spinning machine and set a new world record in cold spinning by cold forming heads from 80mm thick plate.

Strengths Of AOI • Seven dishing presses in total with capacities of 200 to 1,000 tonnes and five flanging machines with capacities 5mm to 100mm (diameter up to 6,800mm). • A recently extended facility from 4,200 sq m to 10,250 sq m, with the yard area covered by cranage extended from 2,500 sq m to 4,600 sq m. Modern manufacturing technology has been added to improve the throughput of the facility. • AOI is a world-class dished head supplier in terms of range of sizes offered. It can also be relied on for the supply of heads due to its not being dependent on any one machine; should one machine suffer a serious problem, there will be another one to take its place. The importance of this is appreciated when compared to a company where there is no alternative, as a breakdown of a major piece of plant can result in significant delays in the execution of contracts. • AOI delivers all dished heads with shorter lead times, which is very important for the completion of projects.

• AOI’s steel trading arm, Ragdhan Trading LLC, carries some 3,000 tonnes stock of high quality pressure vessel steel, ensuring material is always available for dished heads contracts. Ragdhan Trading also offers this material for sale to the general market. • AOI’s reputation in the market, with its very high quality products, services and extensive production capacity, will ensure it continues as a market leader in this region. • A strong team of dedicated professionals in technical, production and commercial disciplines provides support to its customers in direct supply and service activities.

Al Shirawi Enterprises LLC In 1981, Al Shirawi Enterprises was appointed as sole distributor of Scania trucks and buses for Dubai and the Northern Emirates. The company soon established itself as a market leader in the heavy truck sector.

heavy equipment

In 1993, Al Shirawi started the distribution of Scania industrial and marine engines. Building upon its experience with Scania trucks, this division soon found a niche in the UAE that focused on workboats, pleasure and patrol craft. The company’s expertise in diesel engines attracted customers with generator sets, whose requirements were fulfilled by Scania and other diesel engine powered generator sets built in Europe by some of the most renowned assembly plants. When Al Shirawi was awarded the distributorship of Kirloskar engines by KOEL India in 2007, the company could better serve customers with lower power needs. In 1997, the company inaugurated its modern, fully-equipped facility in Dubai to reinforce its commitment to the market and its development. Along with the new facility, a new strategy evolved. This was to diversify into products that would meet customers’ complete operational needs in the movement of goods and materials. Construction and warehouse sectors were targeted. In 1998, Al Shirawi Enterprises was appointed as the sole UAE distributor for Case from the USA (part of the CNH Group), the third-largest construction equipment manufacturer in the world. This enabled the company to offer reliable construction equipment such as wheel loaders, backhoe loaders, excavators and skid steers. Also in 2011, the company introduced Case IH agriculture tractors in the UAE, to fulfill a growing need in the country.

addition in the product range is the diesel counter balance truck, which can fulfill any logistics demand. In 2004, Al Shirawi Enterprises was awarded the UAE distributorship by the French world leader in material handling machines, Manitou. The company’s entire range of products satisfies any demand from a whole variety of industries, including agriculture, construction, timber, logistics and mining. The maneuverability and versatility of its telehandlers has established it as a favourite amongst construction professionals. In 2006, Al Shirawi Enterprises was awarded the distributorship for Carrier Transicold mobile refrigeration units in the UAE. Some of the latest products are multi-temperature units, datacold processors and Oasis 250. The roots of this success lie in the philosophy shared throughout the Al Shirawi Group – a philosophy that emphasises the development of a first-rate after sales organisation to maximise vehicle and equipment uptime, and hence increase overall profitability for the customer. Consultancy is a critical factor behind the sale of trucks, construction equipment and forklifts. Every vehicle sold is specified according to the Scania modular system to meet the end user’s requirements. This in turn produces efficiency for the operator.

Later the same year, Al Shirawi Enterprises was appointed as sole distributor in the UAE for forklifts by the German manufacturer STILL. This opened the door to the warehousing sector. The company offers forklifts and reach trucks, and the latest

Based on Al Shirawi’s extensive experience in the truck after sales market, similar operations were set up to support its construction equipment department and materials handling department. Both departments can provide the service of mobile technicians who have undergone intensive training at the respective equipment manufacturer.

heavy equipment

The Al Shirawi Service Centre not only provides maintenance and repair services to the exacting standards set by its principals, but also assists in providing solutions to fleet customers who have their own workshop facilities. In addition, 24-hour emergency assistance is provided to all customers. The company has continuously improved its service reach to customers within the UAE. Examples of this include a parts sales centre in Sharjah in 1991; new facilities in Dubai in 1997; a service centre for Scania, Gensets and Carrier Transicold in Ras Al Khaimah in 2005 and Fujairah in 2009; a new bodyshop with capacity to accommodate up to 50 trucks and trailers at any time in Dubai Investment Park in 2010; a service centre for Case construction equipment, STILL forklifts, Carrier Transicold and Gensets; and a mechanical and electrical repair shop for the rewinding of motors amongst other after sales support services in Abu Dhabi in 2012. Consistently good service is of paramount importance, and to this end Al Shirawi Enterprises formalised its systems and was certified ISO 9002 compliant in April 1999. Since then, continuous improvement in processes and enhanced capability of resources and organisation has been focused through a Marketing & Capability Development Department, set up in 2009. This also controls the customer touch point centre and monitors the customer feedback flow into the system. Employees’ suggestions and wellbeing is also taken care of as part of the process. The quality management process certification was upgraded to ISO 9001:2008 in March 2010.

Over the years, Al Shirawi Enterprises has led by example. The company was the first Scania distributor in the Gulf region to implement the Scania plus programme; the first distributor in the Middle East to aggressively promote SCANIA marine and industrial engines; the first distributor to have chassis straightening equipment; and the first distributor in the Middle East to win the After Sales Importer of the Year award in 1995. In 2000, Al Shirawi Enterprises was the first distributor outside Europe to receive the Dealer Operating Standard certificate (DOS), awarded after Scania had completed a comprehensive audit. Since then the company status has been continuously upgraded for meeting the principal Dealer Operating Standards, as applicable in Europe. The company was awarded DOS 2 certification in 2007 and DOS 3 certification in 2010. In 2000, the company was the only truck dealer to be approved by Dubai Police for truck and heavy equipment inspection passing. In 2010, the company was awarded a contract for inspecting and issuing permit cards for food transport vehicles on behalf of Dubai Municipality. RTA Licensing Authority also granted permission to the company in 2011 to issue registration card (Mulkiya) renewals for customer convenience. Al Shirawi Enterprises was awarded Best Vehicle Testing Centre by RTA and also Technical Partner Status for RTA Heavy Vehicle Defect Clearing Service Project (VDCS) in 2011.

Dortmund & Hubbard LLC Dortmund & Hubbard is the rental and leasing arm of Al Shirawi Enterprises. It was set up in 2007 to provide total rental solutions to customers in the construction, material handling and warehousing industries.

heavy equipment

This business diversification initiative was fueled by the industry demand for rental solutions from reliable business partners that could supply required equipment and machinery. This includes power systems that are backed up with flexible service, exceptional engineering know-how, and capability to deliver, install, operate and manage anywhere in the world – including a dedicated service team to plan, organise and manage the entire process.
