Industry : Construction & Industry
Job Title: Managing Director

Mohammed Z Vadia’s first introduction to the Middle East construction industry was through his first appointment with a large developer in Dubai, after making the move to the UAE over from the UK.

After a few years, he recognised there was a gap in the market, especially in relation to e-commerce. “This inspired me to create a website which allowed customers to view all types of products and building materials, place an order online immediately with a next day delivery service,” said Vadia.

After the launch of the website, Ufix Middle East grew and received positive feedback. Vadia was also able to gain the support of major international manufacturers, which allowed him to represent them through the Ufix website. Now Vadia plans to expand the company by introducing a maintenance division which will be dedicated to the management of buildings across the Middle East. “It is my vision to become a brand which will become an integral part of the construction and maintenance industry in all aspects, providing products and services of the highest standard,” he added.
