AG Engineering, part of the diversified Al Ghurair Investment group, has been declared the winner of the Dubai Quality Appreciation Award (DQAA) in the construction category at the 26th Business Excellence Awards ceremony held in Dubai recently.
Held annually by the Dubai Economic Department (DED), these DQAA Business Excellence Awards honour the sustained high-quality performance, achievements and excellence of various businesses and entities.
Falling under this umbrella, the DQA recognizes those companies and institutions who continue to adopt a policy of excellence, deliver a best-in-class service standard, and who are committed to driving performance excellence.
AG Engineering received the DQA in recognition of its progressive approach to developing innovative engineering solutions that set a high-quality standard, raising the benchmark across the building and infrastructure industry, said the company in a statement.
In this year’s Awards, AG Engineering was the only business or institution recognised in the Construction sector, operating in building and infrastructure.
When the company was formed in 2017, it was built upon the transformative EFQM Model for Business Excellence, putting a commitment to performance and innovation at is very core, from the outset, the statement added.
With these leading principles, AG Engineering said it has already achieved a number of international accreditations in quality and health and safety.
Earlier this year, the business was awarded the Shaikh Khalifa Excellence Award (SKEA) - Silver Category, along with the prestigious Five Star rating from British Safety Council for Health & Safety, making the DQAA AG Engineering’s third major accolade in 2020, it added.
On the award, CEO Jacob John said: "Winning the Dubai Quality Award is a testament to the values, principles and vision at the very heart of our business. I am proud of our team, who have made this happen, working with a tireless commitment to never letting our standards drop, instead seeking out ways to continuously improve and excel."
