Remaya to participate in IDEX 2015

ABU DHABI, 18th February, 2015 (WAM) — Remaya International, a subsidiary of Tawazun, will be taking part in IDEX 2015 to showcase its products, along with other companies belonging to Tawazun.

Acting General Manager, Hamid Obaid Al Ali, emphasised the importance of the show and said that it has become very clear that the coverage and attention the show grasps is increasing every year.

He said the group and its companies would showcase their latest products in defence, security and other sectors, adding that Remaya is working to become one of the main players of the shooting industry within the UAE.

He said that Remaya was established around six years ago and covers three main fields, including the establishment and management of shooting clubs, training on light weapons and managing and organising shooting events. “Using a weapon is one thing, using it safely and securely is something else. We are working to change the concept of a weapon from a killing tool to a security and stability insurance tool,” he said.

Remaya already owns Caracal Shooting Club and Al Ain Shooting Club, and has a new facility to open soon in Madinat Zayed. Al Ali noted that women account for nearly 45 percent of the Caracal shooting club visitors.

“We have two ways for entry to the club, either walk-inns without membership or through annual membership. Any person who has reached the legal age can enter and practise shooting in our clubs. We now have more than 2,000 members in the Caracal shooting club and over 200 members in Al Ain,” he said.

“We believe that there are challenges facing shooters, and for this purpose we continuously upgrade our training, our facilities and our services to tackle any problems and remove obstacles and challenges that may face members,” he added.

Services include providing consultancy and organising shooting events like the annual Abu Dhabi Shooting competition taking place this April, and the National Day Shooting competition.

He said that Remaya is working with reputed international companies and organisations to develop the skills of its employees, adding that Emiritization of the workforce has now reached nearly 33 percent.
