Gulf Warehousing Company and INTERCEPT Technology Middle East sign Qatar Agreement for Anti-Corrosion Packaging Technology

October 06, 2013

The Gulf Warehousing Company (GWC), Qatar’s leading Logistics solutions provider has concluded an exclusivity agreement with INTERCEPT Technology Middle East covering the region of Qatar for INTERCEPT Anti-corrosion packing materials.

INTERCEPT TechnologyTM was founded in the United States of America, and specializes in packaging for storage, logistics and preservation. INTERCEPT TechnologyTM is the new generation of corrosion prevention, and provides an active protection for all materials. Its line is especially relevant in the Automotive, Electronics, Oil & Gas and Museums businesses, where INTERCEPT is used to protect high-value items especially during medium and long term storage.

Developed by Lucent Technologies and Bell Laboratories, INTERCEPT comes in several forms such as shrink films, stretch wrap, foam, container/crate lining or even bags. The patented material absorbs (neutralizes) naturally-present corrosive gases from the air and thereby protects any material it encases for several years. At the same time, the material is a green solution being fully environmentally-friendly and oil-free.

“As specialists in storage solutions, especially among our Oil and Gas as well as our automotive industry and museum customers, we certainly understand the need for preservation of materials during storage and have had our eye out for the right product for some time”, said Mr. Nader Hakim, Chief Operations Officer for GWC. “When we engaged INTERCEPT Technologies and discovered their product line, we knew that their products would fill a need for our customers, and we’re therefore happy to have the product onboard, as storage and logistics solutions are what we do best”.

Mr. Rashid bin Butti bin Bishr a Senior Director of INTERCEPT Middle East and Chairman of Bin Bishr Group also stated, “we are delighted to become partners with a leader in Logistics as Gulf Warehousing Company. We look forward to providing Gulf Warehousing Company and their extensive and valued clients our globally proven clean and successful solutions to the extensive corrosion challenges facing the region for medium and long term storage.
