Lorient at Big 5 – a triumph
On the 25th-28th November 2013 we exhibited at the largest construction event in the Middle East – The Big 5 International Building and Construction show at the Dubai World Trade Centre. The exhibition floor was bustling with over 60,000 visitors from both local and international companies across four days; and served as the ideal networking platform for the Lorient global team.
Under the theme “Sealing doors worldwide”, each member of the Lorient Group was represented including UK, North America, Hong Kong, Southeast Asia and the Middle East. We were also delighted to exclusively announce the incorporation of a new operation at the show – Lorient Pty Ltd, located in New South Wales, Australia. More news on this to follow…
The show was a perfect way to reinforce the highly respected and well known Lorient brand in this thriving region. Our exclusive Middle East distributor, leading architectural hardware and doorset provider Laidlaw International had a permanent presence on our stand; Amit Ur was on hand to deal with customer enquiries face-to-face. Our close partnership with Laidlaw can only strengthen our position in this region; and together we are committed to provide customers with comprehensive support and unrivalled technical expertise.
Laidlaw is the only distributor of genuine Lorient products in the GCC, their contact details are as follows:
Laidlaw Gulf LLC in Dubai

We were also thrilled to receive positive feedback about our new range of AURA architectural seals – which embraces a distinctive selection of drop seals, perimeter seals, door bottom seals, threshold plates and ramps – all with strong design accents.
Maria Simmonds, Managing Director said “We were overwhelmed with the enthusiastic welcome we were given in Dubai by those visiting our stand. It was rewarding to know that all the hard work put into the event paid off. The response to our new AURA® architectural seals was also tremendously positive. Working with Laidlaw – we will ensure that the Lorient presence in the region continues to be strong and that we deliver only the highest level of customer service and support.”
