Tower Holdings Group, a global developer, construction manager, contractor and materials supplier, has formed a strategic partnership with Al Abbar Group, the largest architectural building enveloping and glazing contractor in the Middle East. Through its newly created entity, Al Abbar North America, Tower Holdings will exclusively market, sell and install Al Abbar’s construction façade systems and products throughout North America.
Al Abbar has designed, fabricated and installed façade systems for iconic projects including Burj Khalifa, Bahrain World Trade Center, Emirates Tower, Burj Al Arab Hotel and Dubai International Airport (Concourse 1&2). Tower Holdings will offer a full range of Al Abbar design, engineering, manufacturing and installation services for advanced curtain wall and façade solutions, as well as the company’s coatings, architectural glass and stainless-steel offerings. The exclusive agreement will include the United States, Canada and Mexico.
“I’m extremely pleased to announce this partnership with Al Abbar, a name that has been synonymous with sophisticated construction facades throughout the Middle East and Asia for the past 30 years,” said Kevin O’Sullivan, CEO and president of Tower Holdings Group. “As the trend for environmentally conscious, yet aesthetically pleasing buildings continues to grow in North America, we expect curtain wall and façade systems will increasingly gain widespread adoption in both commercial and residential projects, for both new construction, as well as upgrades of existing office buildings.”
The new Al Abbar systems, combined with the installation services of Tower Holdings’ Alubuild USA, will provide the company with comprehensive in-house capabilities for both ground-up and renovation façade solutions. In addition to Al Abbar serving as the preferred curtain wall design and supply provider for internal projects, Tower Holdings/Alubuild USA will utilize its network of experts and existing channels to distribute Al Abbar systems to third-party developers, owners and contractors.
