In October 2008, SHUAA, the region’s largest and most reputable Investment Bank made a strategic step into the Water Industry by investing into Septech. This decision made by SHUAA indicated a commitment to their shareholders of identifying sustainable businesses in the region that were poised for exceptional growth in the coming years. Having invested into the group, SHUAA and Septech have forged a strong relationship with financial institutions and developers who recognise the relationship for its strategic merits and future sustainable offerings in the water and wastewater industry of the Middle East.
In March 2007, Septech extended its existing exclusive license with the world’s largest pontoon manufacturer Bellingham Marine. The relationship which commended in 2004 allowed for Septech to utilise its existing experience in manufacturing precast building and infrastructure elements towards manufacturing a range of solutions specific for marine and marine environments. Bellingham and Septech’s exclusive 20 year agreement has been identified as one of the first license appointments by the United States manufacturer to an external company.
To continue on the success of the Marine business, Septech identified an industry offering to compliment its already dominant market position in the UAE and Oman. Having designed and installed over 75% of these countries’ marine facilities, Septech entered into an exclusive agreement with PacSoft from New Zealand. PacSoft has been recognised as the industry leader in Marine Management software through in-house developed software and hardware technologies that has been cited as the industry standard. The exclusive relationship between Septech and PacSoft for the Middle East has allowed for Septech to offer an end-to-end solution in the marine industry.
