Loss adjuster Axis is due to expand in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) following its recent success in Dubai.

The company is expecting to start work in Abu Dhabi from September, Qatar by the end of the year and Bahrain next year.

Graham Whitelaw, regional director said:

"We opened in Dubai about two year ago and have six or seven adjusters on the ground, that's meteoric.

"The projects underway are massive, that will take care of the next 10 years certainly. After that is anyone's guess but I don't see the bubble bursting."

Whitelaw added: "Security is the number one priority.

If you wanted to set up a big factory and be allowed to import and export in a secure and stable environment then you come here."
