Coastal Trading & Engineering Opens Fabrication Facility. Coastal Trading and Engineering announces the opening of its Fabrication facility in Industrial area. The fabrication shop is equipped to undertake Stainless steel, Aluminum and Architectural steel works. COASTAL intents to provide its client’s quality fabrication works that meet or exceed the client’s requirement. The facility employs qualified and experienced manpower and stat of the art fabrication equipment to achieve this objective. The fabrication shop is also in the process of being ISO certified. The decision to open the fabrication shop is also in connection with COASTAL being appointed the licensed manufacturer for Wilkinson Hi-Rise Garbage and Linen chutes. Coastal Trading and Engineering signed an agreement with Wilkinson Hi-Rise last year appointing them as their exclusive agent and licensed manufacturer for their garbage and linen chutes for Qatar. Wilkinson Hi-Rise has been manufacturing garbage and linen chutes since 1923 and are the world leaders in this field. COASTAL is the only company in Qatar authorized to manufacture under license for a major chute manufacturer. This agreement is the first long -term exclusive distribution agreement that Wilkinson has made in the Middle East. Wilkinson made this commitment to Coastal based upon their ability to manufacture locally, service and promote Wilkinson products in this exciting market. The value Coastal brings to the equation is the ability to supply and install in the local market an excellent product at a very competitive price. More importantly the chutes will be manufactured in Qatar strictly following the Wilkinson Standards and specifications. This translates into better quality products, faster delivery time and the ability to change and adapt the design to any change in site conditions. Currently most of the suppliers manufacture the chutes outside Qatar which makes it difficult to implement design changes and puts constraints on the delivery schedule. The tri-sorter is another excellent product from Wilkinson. This provides the ability for the first time to sort garbage into different recyclable groups like plastic/paper, glass and garbage. Sorting of the waste at the source is one of the most important criteria for increasing the efficiency of any recycling effort. Qatar currently has introduced a number of environmentally friendly initiatives and Coastal is proud to be able to contribute in this effort through Wilkinson. Coastal will also be providing maintenance agreement with its clients for providing regular service and maintenance for the Wilkinson products.
