ITP Media Group’s MEP Middle East reveals HVAC Power 25 --



The HVAC Power 25 are the most prominent and influential players in the region’s heating, ventilation, and air conditioning sector, who are striving to ensure that homes, hospitals, schools, shops, offices, and occupied spaces remain healthy, comfortable, and sustainable


The February 2022 edition of ITP Media Group’s MEP Middle East magazine is out, and it is already making waves in the region’s MEP sector, with its publication of the 2022 HVAC Power 25 list.

This edition highlights the region’s HVAC Power 25 companies – the most prominent and influential players in the region’s heating, ventilation, and air conditioning sector – who are striving to ensure that homes, hospitals, schools, shops, offices, and occupied spaces remain healthy, comfortable, and sustainable.

At the outset, we would like to thank all the leading contractors, distributors, and suppliers in the GCC region who have responded to our survey questionnaire.

The MEP Middle East team has made a concerted effort to carefully select the top stakeholders who have had a tangible impact on the HVAC sector over the past 12 months.


The list takes into consideration the financial health of the firms; their top completed and ongoing projects during the past year, the value of the contract awards; the size, location, scope of work, and the resources dedicated to each project; as well as their reputation in the market.

The list has also carefully ascertained the digital transformation within the firms, and their individual contributions to sustainable practices and processes.

Please note: The 2022 HVAC Power 25 list is not a ranking. It intends to recognise a host of companies contributing to the sector from across the supply chain. As such, the list has been published in alphabetical order.

Congratulations to:


ALEMCO AFET Bahwan Engineering Co Bin Dasmal Group Blue Star International Camfil MEA Carrier Middle East Daikin MEA Grundfos Hira Industries LLC Honeywell JLW Middle East Johnson Controls KAD Air Conditioning Leminar Global LG Electronics Prime Focus Group Rheem Manufacturing Samsung Gulf Electronics SKM Air Conditioning Taqeef Trosten Industries TROX MEA Voltas Limited Zamil Air Conditioners



In addition, for this edition of the HVAC Power 25, we have excluded district cooling and district heating firms such as Empower, Emicool, and Tabreed, among others despite their laudable contributions to the district energy space, in order to arrive at a true representation of the HVAC industry.


Also, multidisciplinary consultants within the MEP space – who will be included in our upcoming 2022 Top MEP Consultants list – have not been featured in this list.

Without further ado, here is an in-depth look into the Top 25 firms that are shaping the future of the region’s HVAC industry.

JLW Middle East

Ramy Boufarhat, Chief Operating Officer, JLW Middle East

Established in 1875, James L Williams (JLW) is one of Australia’s largest and most experienced services contractors. Cemented within the nation’s history as the first HVAC services contractor, JLW ensured many firsts, including the first air-conditioned building in Australia.

The firm’s Middle East operation was started in the UAE in 2008, and it is now regarded by the industry as an elite Tier-1 MEP contracting firm, whose niche is highly technical large-scale design-and-build/EPC projects.

JLW Middle East is recognised in the market for its quality of workmanship, its engineering excellence, and the ability to deliver projects on time.

The firm has now become an industry leader in the development of data centres in the region, providing key design-and-build engineering and contracting services for some of the world’s leading cloud service providers and the region’s leading wholesalers of data storage.

In addition to data centres, JLW has successfully completed a strong repertoire of the largest, iconic commercial projects in the UAE over the past 14 years.

During the past 12 months alone, JLW Middle East has revealed more than eight major project awards across a variety of sectors.

These include three large data-centre projects; three projects with JLW are the main contractor, including the Sharjah Airport Central Utility Plant facility; a theme park project in the form of the Atlantis The Palm Aquaventure Water Park Expansion project; an award-winning project – the Abrahamic Family House; as well as three projects for Expo 2020 Dubai, including the MEP works for Expo 2020’s 110,000m2 Sustainability Thematic District, works on the World Expo’s iconic water feature, and the World Expo’s Media Centre.

JLW Middle East expands on the legacy of the Australian company, “not by being the first to deliver HVAC to the UAE,” as stated by the COO of JLW Middle East, Ramy Boufarhat, “but by being the best at it.”

The reason stems from their engineering excellence and their ability to adopt practical new technologies on their projects.

“The team is always pushing to use the latest in innovations, and if practical, feasible and efficient – we go for it. If the project is a design and build, then the opportunities to do so multiply ten-fold because the project will be designed by our team, and we have the flexibility to work with technology providers and integrate their solutions into our projects, essentially putting their innovation into practice,” Boufarhat adds.

“HVAC systems are approximately 40% to 50% of each of our projects, and when compared to other disciplines, they are not as regulated by the statutory authorities. Therefore, it is quicker and easier for us to adopt new innovations in HVAC systems.”
