Noise reduction company Echo Barrier has secured a number of major leads at the Big 5 building and construction show staged annually in Dubai.
The company, which has developed an innovative design of noise barrier, typically for use on building sites, opened offices in Dubai and Abu Dhabi earlier this year.
Echo Barrier, which is based in Sudbury, first exhibited at the event ? the biggest of its kind in the region ? in 2012 as a way of testing the market and secured a number of deals, prompting it to open the two new offices.
As a direct result of the event this year, deals are being negotiated not only in the Middle East and North Africa but also in the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, France, South Korea, Germany, Spain, Malaysia, Russia and Australia.
Peter Wilson, technical director, said: “We have had a really successful first year doing business in the Middle East, making some strong business contacts and building our brand. The success of exhibiting at the Dubai Big 5 has topped this off, and means we go into the new year with the future looking bright.”

The commercial benefits of noise reduction are enormous, including extending site operating hours (and so reducing operational costs), minimising noise complaints, enhancing company reputation and providing for an improved working environment.
