The new office of Aerogen, a leading provider of acute care aerosol drug delivery for major hospitals, has been officially inaugurated in Dubai Airport Freezone Authority (Dafza).

According to Dafza, Aerogen’s new office will serve as a hub for the Middle East to ensure timely delivery of critical health-care equipment in the region for the treatment of various respiratory illnesses. The opening follows after Ireland expressed its eagerness to drive in a 40 per cent increase in its exports to the UAE — looking to reach Dh8.61 billion before 2020. In view of this, the inauguration of Aerogen’s new facilities in Dafza is expected to play a key role in the further consolidation of trade relations between the two countries and to attract more Irish companies to set up businesses in the UAE.

Mohammad Al Zarouni, Director General of Dafza, said during his speech: “This is an auspicious start for our latest key partner from Ireland, which embodies our freezone’s commitment to assembling some of the best names in health care in Dubai. ... This inauguration provides a timely opportunity for us to celebrate the UAE’s blossoming relations with Ireland and share with you how Dafza can help Irish companies achieve their ambitions and grow beyond their expectations.”
