Best Choice Floors Protection, a UAE-based company which makes floor protection systems from its factory at Al Quoz 1 in Dubai, is on the hunt for distributors in the Qatari and Saudi Arabian markets.
Speaking to Construction Week at the Big 5 trade show, the company's sales and marketing director, Noora Elias, said the company already works with "almost 90%" of contractors in the UAE as well as with firms in other GCC territories.
However, she added that it was "looking for distributors mainly in Saudi and Qatar just as a way to expand".
The company, which was founded by Maged Elias 13 years ago, manufactures 3-ply cardboard floor protectors for finished tiled and carpeted floors to ensure they are not damaged towards the end of the construction process.
Elias said that these are easier and cheaper to fix and remove than using either gypsum sheets or plywood as a method for protection. It employs around 30 staff.
Best Choice Floors Protection, which also makes a range of protective polypropylene sheets, packing tapes, is the only manufacturer of this type of protective flooring system in the GCC, according to Elias.
She added that it has attended the Big 5 trade show since 2008, and that its focus this year is to increase its sales to nearby countries.
"We want to export more," she said.
