Case study: Burns Bridge Sweett
The Burns Bridge
story is a perfect illustration of how Templeton Galt can help achieve your business aims in the Gulf.
On a recommendation from the Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce, Burns Bridge approached Templeton Galt to discuss market entry strategy. We were able to supply sound market research and intelligence. This found there was a demand for the company’s skills. With our range of well-developed local relationships we were able to introduce Burns Bridge to a number of influential private and public sector contacts.
Out of these meetings, Burns Bridge was able to make an informed – and clear – choice on a local partner. It is the most important decision a company can make when it looks to set up in the Gulf. Like a marriage, getting the chemistry and mix of skills right is fundamental to success. And so it has proven to be.
After helping Burns Bridge open its office in Abu Dhabi we continued to support the company with new opportunities and new introductions, which led to a range of significant contracts for the company. In a short period Burns Bridge was able to develop a vibrant business and was subsequently acquired by international company Sweett Group.
