Caracl and Merkel Guns go on Sale at ADIHEX
Caracal International, the Middle East’s newly established light weapons manufacturer will make its products available for sale at the Abu Dhabi International Hunting and Equestrian Exhibition (ADIHEX) which will be held from 24 to 27 October, 2007. Along with Caracal’s commercial debut of its superior line of signature pistols, Merkel one of Germany’s most respected manufacturers of rifle and shotguns for hunting and sports, will join Caracal to present an impressive range of hunting weapons.
Caracal’s participation at ADIHEX signals the regional debut of Merkel, a well known European hunting weapons manufacturer, and a company that has been newly acquired by Abu Dhabi based Caracal. Merkel will be available for the first time, to the ADIHEX visitors and this will pave its entry into the Middle Eastern, Asian and North African markets.
“We are pleased to be making available Caracal and Merkel guns at ADIHEX as we are aware that sporting enthusiasts have waited for a long time for this opportunity,” said Hamad Khalifa Al Neyadi, Managing Director of Caracal International. “We believe that this exhibition is the perfect launch pad for Merkel and Caracal as it will draw attention to the quality of our craftsmanship and precision.”
Al Neyadi explained that an exhibition such as ADIHEX gives visitors the opportunity to view the many choices of products commercially available to them, and benchmarks Caracal’s products based on its superior features and qualities.
Earlier this year, Caracal acquired Merkel from its base in the UAE. Caracal will promote the sale of Merkel throughout the Gulf and Middle East, Asian and African markets. Merkel products are strictly commercial hunting guns and intended for hobbyists.
Al Neyadi explained that companies or individuals interested in buying need to follow the laws, regulations and procedures to be able to obtain a gun license that will allow them to purchase Caracal and Merkel Products.
