During the early stages of MACE we were working in Dubai under the name of MIDFA – MACE. With strong leadership from William Haddad, his attention to detail to deliver an assurance of expertise and quality in our construction works, we were amongst the first companies in the region to achieve the ISO 9001 accreditation. Since then we have secured further accreditation including ISO 14001: 2004 (Environmental Management Systems) and BSi 18001: 2007 OHSAS (Occupational Health & Safety Management Systems).
As demand for qualified contractors increased throughout the recently formed UAE, MACE expanded its business operations, playing a significant role in the development of critical infrastructure in the major cities of the United Arab Emirates and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). We developed a strong reputation in sewerage systems and treatment works and the operation and maintenance thereof. We worked in Hospital construction, Industrial warehousing, and undertaking a variety of Turnkey Projects. We went on to serve the Government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia including ARAMCO, with construction projects on major pipelines for gas, oil and water.
MACE takes pride in the introduction and application of innovative engineering methods in its Contracts where our clients approve such methods, including the following examples:
- Cathodic protection of subterranean concrete structures.
- Sewer surveys.
- Sewer rehabilitation.
- Pipe re-blocking systems
In keeping with our drive for innovation we encourage and fund our staff to undertake their CPD, attend seminars and study to keep abreast of new methods of management, accounting and engineering technologies, whether that be at home in the UAE, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia or overseas.
We have a strong professional staff base with highly experienced Chartered Engineers, Construction specialists backed up by essential support services staff with PRO & HR specialists on hand and capable of mobilizing entire project teams within the UAE and Saudi Arabia. We recognize the value in, and where ever possible recruit from within the Emirates, as this ensures a robust awareness of local culture which in turn benefits our clients, stimulates the economy and allows MACE to become ever more integrated within the community. In support of Project delivery we have an extensive asset portfolio of Plant, Vehicles and Machines along with a well stocked materials and parts store, to ensure all projects can proceed without delays.
MACE’s competitive spirit, and the will to lead, extends to leisure activities too. The annual Raft Race in Abu Dhabi requires training, coordination and demands strong team work, and over the years of participation with friends, staff and employees we have won several trophies.
Over 47 years after its initial endeavor, MACE now operates from a network of established offices throughout the Middle East Regions.
