In the Dubai Red Wing Store, customers will find Red Wing’s full PPE offering including purpose-built footwear that meets or exceeds safety standards such as EN ISO and ASTM, flame resistant workwear, safety glasses, gloves and other PPE accessories.
The store is located in Al Quoz Industrial 3 in Dubai. The opening of the new store in Dubai adds to the company’s view of a bright future for the energy industry throughout the region.
“Since our first steps into the Middle East energy industry more than 50 years ago, Red Wing Shoe Company has been committed to providing exceptional one-to-one service with great quality products that exceed our customers’ expectations”, said Paul Olson, Managing Director, Eastern Hemisphere for Red Wing Shoe Company. “The opening of our Dubai store pairs with our stores in Abu Dhabi to not only showcase Red Wing’s commitment to industrial workers in the United Arab Emirates but further cement our position as the leading total solution provider for PPE worldwide”.
The Dubai and Abu Dhabi stores are a collaboration between Red Wing and Al Masaood, one of the most enduring business partnerships in the Middle East oil and gas industry.
