What is your scope of busi­ness?

Braun­schweiger Flam­men­fil­ter Gmbh (PROTEGO®) is a Ger­man man­u­fac­turer of pro­tec­tive sys­tems in haz­ardous ar­eas. PROTEGO® is a renowned name in the mar­ket with over 70 years of ex­pe­ri­ence man­u­fac­tur­ing safety equip­ment like flame ar­resters, breather valves, emer­gency vents, pi­lot op­er­ated valves, float­ing suc­tion units, oil skim­mers, roof drain sys­tems and in-tank valves. In as­so­ci­a­tion with our part­ners, we also pro­vide by­pass con­duc­tors for float­ing roof tanks.

PROTEGO M.E.®, a sub­sidiary of Braun­schweiger Flam­men­fil­ter Gmbh (PROTEGO®), was es­tab­lished in 2005 to ex­tend sup­port to our Mena-based clients.

Un­der the brand PROTEGO®, we pro­vide out­stand­ing con­sul­tancy and ser­vice to our cus­tomers world­wide, thereby earn­ing their trust in our prod­ucts, which serve in­dus­trial process en­gi­neer­ing, oil & gas, chem­i­cals, phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal in­dus­tries and the bio-en­ergy sec­tor. Our val­ued cus­tomers rely on the high stan­dard of de­vel­op­ment and qual­ity of our com­pany.

What are you show­cas­ing at ADIPEC?

Apart from our state of the art prod­ucts like the breather valve with in­te­gral flame ar­rester, float­ing suc­tion unit, end of line flame ar­resters & pres­sure vac­uum re­lief vents; this year we shall be dis­play­ing PROTEGO’S® re­cent­ly­launched pi­lot op­er­ated valves. We will also be show­cas­ing the by­pass con­duc­tors we man­u­fac­ture in con­juc­tion with our part­ner, Light­ing Mas­ter Inc.

This year at our booth, our guests will have the op­por­tu­nity to in­ter­act with our group CEO, Dr. Michael Davies. He is an in­dus­try leader on th­ese prod­ucts. Hav­ing close in­ter­ac­tions with him will give our guests in­sight into his ex­per­tise re­gard­ing plant safety and in­tegrity.

What are your goals for 2019?

Keep­ing in flow with the ICV re­quire­ments of ADNOC, we at PROTEGO M.E.® are all geared up to ex­pand our man­u­fac­tur­ing fa­cil­ity for flame ar­resters and pres­sure & vac­uum re­lief valves. The fa­cil­ity is al­ready ISO 9001:2015 and ATEX cer­ti­fied.

The con­sul­ta­tive cus­tomer ap­proach at PROTEGO® shall be fur­ther used to en­hance our ser­vices for our es­teemed cus­tomers by way of tech­ni­cal sem­i­nars and plant au­dits to achieve a high level of safety, both for our cus­tomers and the en­vi­ron­ment.

What chal­lenges have you faced this year?

Q4 of 2017 was a record quar­ter for our tank equip­ment busi­ness, and the timely ex­e­cu­tion of th­ese or­ders was a chal­lenge. How­ever, our of­fices in Ger­many and Dubai worked tire­lessly and ex­e­cuted the jobs to en­sure a high level of sat­is­fac­tion among our es­teemed clients.

The mar­ket down­turn and sub­se­quent slow­down in projects was an­other chal­lenge for PROTEGO®. We are al­ready get­ting pos­i­tive sig­nals from the mar­ket and are op­ti­mistic that 2019 will be a good year for the re­gion when it comes to oil and gas projects. This is the rea­son we are gear­ing up to sup­port this high growth mar­ket.

What are some suc­cesses from this year?

We launched our state of the art pi­lot op­er­ated valve, with strong recog­ni­tion in global mar­kets, and we are op­ti­mistic about re­sults in the re­gion. An­other huge suc­cess was equip­ping most of the avi­a­tion prod­uct stor­age tanks with PROTEGO® float­ing suc­tion units.

Be­sides sup­ply­ing a high qual­ity prod­uct, we at PROTEGO® be­lieve in pro­vid­ing site en­gi­neer­ing and su­per­vi­sion sup­port. This sup­port is pro­vided for all of our prod­ucts. Pro­vid­ing high qual­ity prod­ucts backed by in-depth en­gi­neer­ing sup­port is in PROTEGO®’S DNA!

What are your growth and de­vel­op­ment plans for 2019?

PROTEGO M.E.® has ma­jor plans for 2019, whereby we in­tend to ex­pand our fa­cil­ity in Jebel Ali Free Zone and to in­crease our man­power to sup­port highly sus­tain­able growth.
