POLMIL Fencing, specialising in the production of high security fencing has successfully exhibited its products during Milipol Qatar 2014. Since its establishment, POLMIL Fencing has evolved into an innovative company that utilises the most cutting-edge technology in fencing and remains dedicated to improving job site safety.

With over 50 years’ of leading industry experience in Europe, POLMIL Fencing has established its presence in the State of Qatar in the last twelve months with longer term plans to expand its presence in the Middle East region. POLMIL offers a new fencing solution that proved very successful during the 2012 London Summer Olympics as it uses existing fences. POLMIL Fencing which is suitable for construction sites, airports, stadiums and at sporting eventscan also be used for crowd control at similar large scale events such as Qatar Sports Day and Qatar National Day. POLMIL Fencing is an on the ground, security fencing that is designed for rapid deployment, can easily be dismantled, and is interchangeable and effective on different surfaces.

During Milipol Qatar 2014, POLMIL showcased the features that set its fences apart, including a high level of strength that is built into every aspect of the system. The fences are on ground passing a PAS 68 rating (UK Government Test), the system has been mob tested by the UK police and crashed tested by the UK Ministry of Defence. The system offers an on-ground system as well as having an in ground option. Paul Gilligan, Commercial Director at POLMIL Middle East said: “I am delighted that we are exhibiting at Milipol Qatar 2014 and have had the opportunity to highlight our wide range of products from POLMIL Fencing. All of our products are top quality, innovative and made to meet the specifics of the local community. We understand the importance of site security and safety in time and budget sensitive conditions.

By having a local presence, and in partnering with Qatari-based companies, POLMIL Fencing hopes to expand its business dealings and further develop local engagement. One of its first major deals was the appointment of PRISMA International, a multi-discipline Qatar-based firm specialising in turn-key interior design projects. This deal marked a turning point for both POLMIL Fencing and PRISMA International, as there is potential to move forward focusing on research and development as well as supporting the development of the local community through training and employment.

Matteo Casiraghi, Deputy General Manager of PRISMA International, said: “We are thrilled to have partnered with POLMIL Fencing and look forward to a long and successful partnership with them. PRISMA International was established in Qatar in 1989, and 25 years later one of our core business components continues to be giving back and investing in the local community. In keeping with the Qatar National Vision 2030, our vision is to assist with modernisation while respecting and preserving Qatari traditions.”

Further, Qatar Petroleum, a state-owned corporation that was established in 1974 and is responsible for all phases of the oil and gas industry in Qatar, is also using POLMIL Fencing as part of initial testing phase. POLMIL Fencing is also working closely with the Qatar Naval Port. POMIL Fencing states that Ooredoo, Qatar Rail and Qatar 2022 have all expressed interest in their fencing options. In the lead up to the World Cup 2022, POLMIL Fencing is well positioned to be the principal high security fencing distributor having supplied its fences to a number of international sporting events including the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, Heathrow Airport, the NATO Summit For G4, as well as for the Defence Security and Equipment International (DSEI) for the last two years.

Milipol Qatar 2014, the region’s premier security exhibition showcasing the latest innovations in equipment and technology solutions for professionals in the internal state security sector, proved to be the ideal platform to showcase POLMIL Fencing. POLMIL Fencing will continue to establish a presence in the local and regional construction industry as it champions site security and welfare.
