Profile: Gemaco

Who are we?
Gemaco is a family-owned and run business with a long history in the UAE. We opened our first office in Abu Dhabi in 1984; from there the business grew and was quickly followed by a second showroom in Dubai.

Gemaco was one of the first companies in the UAE to offer turnkey project services and continues to provide quality interior fit-out services in the commercial, retail and leisure sectors. The family business continues into the next generation with the appointment of Nadia Dolmark, daughter of the founder, as the vice-chairperson of Gemaco.

The emphasis we would like to make is on how we are a local company with years of local experience. We are not an overseas company with a branch here; we are a UAE-based company with deep local experience and understanding of UAE culture.

We represent more than 16 international brands, however our partnership with Haworth is of key importance to us. Our furniture division provides us with furniture solutions for all clients’ requirements.

We have a staff of more than 200 motivated individuals who bring a wealth of knowledge and international experience.

What’s new?
The Dubai showroom is currently undergoing a complete upgrade. We are incorporating a touch-down area for our clients, and for the architect and interior design community to use. We hope to create a very inclusive space which will be inviting for designers, our clients and suppliers.

The new Haworth workstation system Reside, Beside, Belong will be featured together with new products from our European suppliers.

The Abu Dhabi showroom upgrade is next on our agenda and will embrace the philosophy of the Dubai showroom.

Your best selling products?
The Haworth Zody chair continues to be an outstanding product for us. Our existing clients keep buying the chair; an example of this is when we faced a situation recently, where a client moved to a new company and insisted on having a Zody chair in his new office before he would start.

Our design-focused specifiers love the collection of Fritz Hansen and continually recommend the classic collections for projects.
