Dubai: Gulf Dynamic Services [GDS] - a subsidiary of Masharie LLC, the private equity arm of Dubai Investments PJSC and one of the leading names in turnkey interior fit-out solutions, is targeting 25% growth in turnover in 2016 - as demand for quality fit-out solutions continues to increase with hectic construction activity in the UAE and GCC countries.

The company is looking at expanding its portfolio across Gulf, particularly in Saudi Arabia & Qatar, as also in Africa and Iraq. GDS, which achieved 20% increase in turnover in 2015, is also eyeing opportunities in the hospitality sector in the UAE and region to complement its existing project portfolio.

"Gulf Dynamic Services is eyeing a strong growth this year. Buoyed by the booming construction activity and a great growth potential in interiors and the fit-out sector - particularly the hospitality projects, we expect to grow by over 25% in 2016, which will further reinforce our market reputation," said El Tayeb El Hag Yousif, General Manager of GDS.

Some of the other projects under GDS belt include the Dubai Insurance Building interior refurbishing, over 13 branches of Union National Bank [UNB], the Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank [ADIB] HQ in Erbil, among others.
