To accomplish this, we must prove our best-in-class service on the world stage. Obviously, one of the most critical components of the diamond industry is security.

Dr Abdulla Al-Hashimi, Divisional Senior Vice President Emirates Group Security and CEO Transguard Group said: “Managing secure logistics and solutions for high-end valuables requires another level of expertise and experience, which is why we’re the trusted partners for hundreds of businesses in the UAE. Transguard and TRIGEM are like-minded partners – we both have a vision for our business and for how it contributes to the growth of Dubai. We wish TRIGEM every success.”
