Tanzifco Commemorates 50 Glorious Years
Tanzifco Commemorates 50 Glorious Years as a Group and 10 Years of Growth in UAE
Tanzifco Emirates L.L.C. commemorates its 10th anniversary this July 2013. This year proves to be a landmark year for Tanzifco as a Group as well as it successfully completed 50 glorious years in the region as a provider of soft services. Fifty years ago, this company initiated a series of successful strokes in Kuwait and a decade ago in the United Arab Emirates by providing professional soft services to a cross-section of clients, which it continues till date.
It is no mean feat for a commercial enterprise to become such an institution transcending financial numbers and impacting lives of all stakeholders in such a way. An organization can perhaps grow this way only with its integral associates, its employees co-partnering the momentum forward. And, as Tanzifco completes 10 magnificent years in UAE & 50 years as a Group, it would be interesting to briefly run through its journey so far.
Tanzifco initiated its operations in 1963 in Kuwait to be amongst the first to provide professional cleaning and allied
services. Thereafter, the company expanded its operations through the Middle East region covering Qatar, Bahrain, Egypt, UAE, Oman and India as well.
“It is Tanzifco’s absolute good fortune that in today’s challenging times too; it is celebrating its 10th anniversary in UAE. Growing from strength to strength with a solid foundation based on industrious commitment, we are proud of our employees, customers and all our stakeholders with whose support this has been possible,” says Mr. Ali R. Deryan, General Manager, Tanzifco Emirates.
He further goes on to say, “UAE is a dynamic market hungry for world class services. We understand this and strive to deliver internationally acceptable proficient soft services.
The past years have confirmed the UAE market’s potential for expecting and absorbing services which are innovative and global and we have ensured service delivery to this end.”
The last ten years have been dynamic and the market fluctuations have been a force to reckon with across the world especially post recession and the economic meltdown. However, Tanzifco has witnessed exponential growth in these years. This can be attributed to the trained and skilled manpower delivering service par excellence. Tanzifco Emirates is one of the leading soft services company to have its own Tanzifco Cleaning Academy (TCA) which is a British Institute of Cleaning Science’s (BICSc) certified training centre.
“As a service-provider Tanzifco has been able to carve a niche in a competitive market and earn the trust of its clients because we realize the significance of skilled and trained manpower in our industry. The onus of success of our offering is based on the etiquettes and proficiency levels of our staff. Hence, we firmly believe in investing in staff training and all-round development so as to have satisfied clients and contented personnel at the end of the day,” says Mr. Mustapha Alayan, Chairman, Tanzifco Group.
Tanzifco has been able to develop a vast client base covering a plethora of customers ranging across the healthcare, hospitality, government, commercial and residential sectors. A systematic approach from its operations team whether for a one time job or an annual contract ensures efficient and timely service.
To its credit, Tanzifco’s contract with the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) for Provision of Bus Washing and Cleaning Service in PTA Depots and Onsite Locations for the bus washing services has been renewed again this year. Its contract with Mafraq Hospital, Abu Dhabi continues since 2009 and with Ambulatory Healthcare Services (SEHA) since last May 2012. Further, the company has expanded its client base by way of greater coverage in other emirates for some of its existing clients like Sheikh Zayed Housing Programme and General Authority for Youth & Sports Welfare. Amongst the new contracts, Tanzifco’s security services under Fist for Security and Safety got the contract for the security guard services for Al Barsha Mall, Dubai. It also won the contract for the office boy cum cleaning services for the National Media Council. Based on its ability to handle large-scale projects, Tanzifco achieved two more prestigious contracts – Abu Dhabi Educational Council and Emirates Identity Authority across all emirates.
“Our growth in today’s times stems from a synergy exuded by the workforce across all departments. We firmly believe in working together as an associate of our client rather than just a service-provider. The bottom-line is growth and progress for all and this can only be achieved if systems are in place, manpower is suitably trained and experienced, and each one works with co-operation and in tandem with others,” states the Chairman.
Mr. Ali R. Deryan, General Manager discloses, “This is a time to consolidate and make the foundation stronger. Our vision is to do this by incorporating hard facility management (FM) services within our fold. In the future, we would be diversifying in to hard FM services thereby offering the entire package of services together. We are expanding in the Indian sub-continent as well by tying up with local partners in India, Nepal and Sri Lanka with a focus on recruitment and training for the Gulf region.”
“We are conscious of the layered dynamics of the FM industry and are constantly striving to innovate and upgrade ourselves to keep abreast with the demands of the market and deliver service which is not only as per international standards, but one that proves to be an industry benchmark in itself,” he concludes.
