Dubai, UAE; 07 December 2020: Jumbo Distribution, a division of the Jumbo Group and a leading distributor for the newest and most innovative electronic brands in the UAE, is proud to announce the inclusion of another leading partner to its portfolio of premium distribution brands. Weber, one of the world’s leading grill & barbecue manufacturers, has chosen Jumbo to be their exclusive distributor for UAE, Oman, Bahrain and Kuwait markets.

With a legacy of over 65 years, Weber is known for its innovation through its excellence in developing barbecue products that include Charcoal, Gas and Electric Grills – all of which will be distributed by Jumbo, along with other related products such as barbecue accessories for cooking, serving and care.

Weber’s partnership with Jumbo is a testimony to the Jumbo Group’s strong distribution strength in the region with a reach of over 1000 retail stores. Jumbo Distribution has also built robust capabilities and infrastructure in warehousing, 4PL, last mile delivery, marketing & visual merchandising and after sales support.

With Weber’s extensive product offering in the segment of outdoor grilling equipment supported by Jumbo’s commitment to customer service excellence, GCC residents can expect the best in barbecue products to now be made accessible to them, right in time for the winter season.

Atul Joshi, Head of Distribution, Jumbo Group said: “The strong family culture & love for food in this region has been a major reason for the rising trend of outdoor grilling. The winter months see frequent cookouts on weekends and holidays, and with the increased time spent at home these days, we expect this category to grow extremely well. We at Jumbo have always worked to provide customers access to premium lifestyle products from around the world. We are very pleased to associate ourselves with Weber, one of the best brands in the world for barbecue products, and we will be working to welcome many new members to the Weber family in the GCC.”

Britt Warming, General Manager, Emerging Markets EMEA, Weber-Stephen added, “ We at Weber are driven by passion for our products and exceeding expectations. In doing so, we develop innovative solutions, identify new trends and provide our customers with the best grilling experiences. We are looking forward to a great cooperation in the Middle East region with Jumbo Electronic, representing Weber and providing the best service to our loyal and enthusiastic local grilling community.”

The brand’s product line ranges between AED 499 to AED 16,999. The entire range of Weber products will be available across leading retailers in the GCC such as Ace Hardware, Jumbo Electronics, HomeSmiths, Garden Centre, Amazon, Lulu, Prime Gourmet, Better Life, SAACO, Atken, XCite, Buildex, Xtra and Emax. Jumbo will also offer maintenance, service & repairs of all Weber products through its ‘Jumbo Serve’ division which will offer added peace of mind for consumers in the region
