HFI welcomes Dron & Dickson Middle East success with Proserv business sale

Hugh Fraser International congratulates the management team at Dron & Dickson on the recent successful sale of their UAE business to Proserv Middle East.

Led by Colin Rowley and based in Stirling in Scotland, Dron & Dickson provides specialist installation and maintenance services in relation to hazardous area electrical equipment in the oil and gas and renewables sectors. The business has over 90 years of track record.

HFI’s links with the company go back to its original acquisition of Totus Engineering in Abu Dhabi in 2012 and it was a pleasure to support Finance Director, John Strang, and UAE Country Manager, Alistair Wright, during the sale process, in particular the legal arrangements with local partner, Al Yaseah Group, led by Khalid Al Qubaisi.

I very much enjoyed catching up with Alistair and Khalid during ADIPEC 2021 and we wish the former Dron & Dickson team in the Middle East every success under new ownership at Proserv.
