Liberty Building Solutions appointed as the exclusive distributor of Barton cable management conduit and accessories to the MENA region

Newly launched Liberty Building Solutions FZE – a Jebel Ali Free Zone based subsidiary of Liberty House Group – is pleased to announce it now holds exclusive rights to stock and distribute the premium quality UK produced Barton Engineering cable management system across the MENA region.

Barton Engineering is a long-standing market leader in the manufacture and supply of proven performance rigid and flexible steel conduit and associated fittings. The UK brand has been present in the Middle East for over 30 years, and has been used extensively in flagship projects across the region including Burj Khalifa, Ferrari World, Dubai Opera House, Al Ain Hospital in the UAE, the Qatar National Museum, the Mall of Qatar and the King Faisal Air Base in Saudi Arabia.

In November 2015, Liberty purchased the assets of Caparo Industries Plc including the Barton Engineering brand, and from March 2016, Liberty Building Solutions has taken over the regional distribution for the entire Barton, Longmore and Hayes ranges of cable management products in the MENA region. In addition, Liberty Building Solutions will stock and sell other complementary electrical Power and Distribution items including Proteus switchgear and RPP/M2 wiring accessories.

Liberty Building Solutions’ CEO, Richard Botting said: “Barton and the other cable management ranges enjoy a strong brand reputation in the Middle East. The products have a proven track record of performance in this harsh environment which combines the extremes of heat, salinity, humidity and dust.”

“At Liberty Building Solutions we also have a team that has a considerable amount of knowledge of the ranges and their applications. This expertise, combined with our excellent working relationships with key clients in the region and their requirements, places us in an excellent position to provide solutions of leading quality.”

Liberty Industries Group CEO Douglas Dawson commented: “In establishing Liberty Building Solutions, our Group is delivering the all-important continuity of supply to the many prestigious clients already using Barton, Longmore and Hayes across the MENA region. We also look forward to assisting many more new customers and have plans in growing our product and service offering.”

“As the location of one of our global hubs, Dubai is the logical place for Liberty to offer products that are a direct result from our global integrated supply chain,” Sanjeev Gupta, Executive Chairman of Liberty House Group added. “It is our Group’s intention to further grow our presence here by introducing additional market leading products as we look to expand both Liberty’s reputation and market share in the region.”
