The Engie Group, active in the energy sector, has acquired all shares of Cofely BESIX Facility Management (CBFM), a leading provider of customer solutions and energy services in the Middle East. With nearly 2,000 employees in the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Oman, the CBFM, created in 2008 through a partnership between Engie and the Belgian construction group Besix, is working on several emblematic sites such as Dubai Mall, Abu Dhabi’s Zayed University and the Quatar Foundation. “This move is strategic to Engie in the Middle East, because it provides direct access to the clients’ needs. It integrates into our portfolio a technical services team with a strong local reputation and provides a robust platform for future development in the region,” said Paulo Almirante, Engie’s Executive Vice-President and Group CEO.
In order to confirm this takeover, Cofely BESIX Facility Management changes its name to Engie Cofely.
