In 2014 Zip-Clip attended a Welsh Government Trade Mission to Qatar. As a result of this mission, Zip-Clip had their products approved by the Arab Engineering Bureau for use in the Doha redevelopment and regeneration project. Zip-Clip were given a brief to find a way of suspending projectors in a number of the new museums built in the cultural quarter that have traditional Qatari wicker ceilings. As nothing could be fixed to these ceilings the company had to design and develop a special system to overcome this.
Further to the completion of this project, Zip-Clip was approached by His Highness Sheikh Hamad Ahmed S. J. Al Thani’s company, HBA Private Trading & Contracting to distribute the Zip-Clip products throughout Qatar.
August 2018 saw a delegation from HBA Private Trading & Contracting, including His Highness Sheikh Hamad Ahmed S. J. Al Thani, visit the Zip-Clip offices and factory in Welshpool. This was followed in February 2019 by a Middle Eastern visit by Steve Goldsworthy, Zip-Clip CEO to HBA Private Trading & Contracting.
As a result of these visits, Zip-Clip and HBA Private Trading & Contracting have now signed an exclusivity agreement for the distribution of the Zip-Clip range throughout Qatar.
Steve Goldsworthy, Zip-Clip CEO said:
”It is a pleasure to be in partnership with HBA Private Trading and Contracting. Zip-Clip strive to work with only the elite companies in the market and it is a pleasure to be working with such an enthusiastic and driven business which adopts the same ethos as the rest of Zip-Clip’s global partners. With our recent appointment it allows Zip-Clip’s brand to grow and expand our global reach.
It is a privilege and an honour to be included in this business collaboration with His Highness Sheikh Hamad Ahmed S. J. Al Thani’s business empire.
I wish His Highness Sheikh Hamad Ahmed S. J. Al Thani and his commercial team all the success and prosperity in the future.”
We are looking forwards to the launch of our products at Agriteq Doha 2019 on the 19th to the 22nd March 2019
