Connecticut, USA—Rosco Laboratories, a global leader in lighting and colour technologies for the film, television, entertainment and architecture industries, opens its new Middle East office located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Kees Frijters, Rosco’s President of EMEA, will be responsible for leading this endeavour while continuing his present responsibilities in Europe, Asia and Africa.
While Rosco has been operating in the Middle East for many years, it was apparent that in order to keep up with the rapid growth in that part of the world, and service its customers in a more efficient manner, a Rosco office in the UAE was the next step. “Dubai has become a world centre for tourism, trade, retail, business and finance. The Rosco team and product line will be perfectly suited to support the large and innovative projects happening in the region, particularly in the burgeoning areas of film, television and architectural development,” Rosco’s CEO Mark Engel remarked.
In addition to the new office in the UAE and its headquarters in the United States, Rosco maintains fully staffed businesses in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Spain and the United Kingdom.
