Abu Dhabi - MENA Herald: Corodex Industries has picked up two separate awards for the excellent performance of its operations in various water purification and wastewater treatment plants.
The company was recognized for its excellence in quality and innovation in the manufacturing sector and was awarded the prestigious Sheikh Khalifa Excellence Awards (SKEA)-Gold Category hosted by Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ADCCI) at a ceremony held recently at Emirates Palace.
Corodex Industries has adapted world-class practices on quality and excellence and has evolved to become a leader in the water, wastewater and the odor control industry offering a diverse portfolio of products and services including operation and maintenance services.
Mahmoud Awad, Managing Director of Corodex Industries said: “We are honoured to be bestowed with the recognition of the highest standard of quality and excellence carrying the name of our leader, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.
“Receiving the Sheikh Khalifa Excellence Award is a testament to our 40 year unwavering commitment to quality of services and furthering best practices in the environment sector of the United Arab Emirates.”
SKEA recognizes organizations across a range of sectors that demonstrate high performance and continuous improvement to support a healthy economy and unify their management practice in a balanced holistic model. It uses the European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM) model to assess the participating entities and the winners are the ones who have successfully implemented the parameters as recommended by the model.
Corodex Industries was also declared the national winner of the ‘Water Project of the Year’ in UAE at the 2019 MEED Quality Awards for Projects for its work on the Dubai Industrial Park (DIP) Wastewater Treatment Plan.
The winners were selected based on evidence of engineering and construction excellence, as well as the economic, social and environmental impact of the project. The results were audited by accounting and consultancy firm Grant Thornton.
“We are grateful to accept this prestigious award from MEED. This has further cemented our position as one of the leaders in the water purification and sewage treatment sector.
“We implemented an effective Sewage Treatment Plant that mitigates water shortage, improves productivity and minimizes any adverse impact the industrial park may have.”
The sewage treatment plant set up by Corodex Industries at DIP currently produces a 2000 m3/d (cubic meter per day) of treated water per day that is reclaimed for applications such as urban irrigation, utilities or lavatory purposes.
“We have always set high quality standards to better our systems and processes. These recognitions underscores our promise to deliver game-changing systems in the water treatment sector by partnering with key players to introduce technologies that propel the UAE as a leader in the industry,” Mahmoud said.
