Losberger De Boer appoints new Dubai-based managing director Jim Muldoon

Manufacturer of event structures and semi-permanent buildings, Losberger De Boer has appointed Jim Muldoon as its new Dubai-based managing director, who will be responsible for operations across the Middle East, Central Asia and Russia. 

Muldoon is bringing over 20 years of strategic and business development experience, as well as a thorough understanding of Gulf markets, accumulated through his work in various senior management roles in the GCC.

Capitalising on the growing trend of temporary buildings in the region, Losberger De Boer has designed and developed a high-specification, semi-permanent building concept, which drives significant growth over its core event structure rental business. 

“Offering bespoke, design-led temporary and semi-permanent building solutions that can be tailored to individual client requirements and delivered in record-breaking time is our key objective,” Muldoon said.

“The Gulf market remains highly receptive to the Losberger De Boer rapid build concept... We are excited to continue rolling out our next generation of semi-permanent buildings that look and feel like permanent buildings, but can be built in weeks and not months or years. Crucially, our clients can start trading almost immediately on new sites while providing the flexibility to relocate at short notice if and when business circumstances change.”

Offering a range of over 70-systemised temporary event structures, all of which are European-manufactured and ISO-certified, Losberger maintains sustainability as a key feature of its business -- most models are factory-manufactured and relocatable.

According to the firm, temporary structure use is also a zero carbon choice compared to a new permanent building. The latest insulation technology deployed produces a 40 per cent decrease in power use for HVAC, compared to more traditional temporary structures, further driving substantial economic and environmental benefits for customers.
