Danube Group has opened a $13.6 million, state-of-the-art industrial complex and warehouse unit at Technopark, Jebel Ali, in Dubai to help reduce the UAE construction industry’s dependence on imported finished products. The new industrial complex will serve as an advantage for local traders facilitating easy availability of customized goods thereby saving them the time and cost in importing the same.

Strategically located to cater to the GCC markets, the industrial complex facility in UAE is spread across a total area of 4.8 million sqft. The facility will accommodate an increase in inventory and expanded shipping functions.

The industrial complex facility integrated with warehouse management system (WMS) features four value addition units measuring 1.6 million sqft. These comprise a melamine pressing unit, steel cut and bend unit, décor unit (veneer pressing unit), development unit, ceiling tiles manufacturing unit, and distribution unit in addition to a warehouse unit measuring 3.2 million sqft.

“Since establishing its presence here in Dubai nearly 20 years ago, Danube has grown into one of the largest building materials companies in the region. By positioning its key manufacturing and logistics activities at the Jebel Ali Free Zone, Danube will be able to tap the strategic location, business amenities and resources of this world-class industrial community. I would like to take this opportunity and congratulate Danube on its new facility and wish the company sustained success,” says HE Sheikha Lubna Al Qasimi, minister of foreign trade, UAE, after officially inaugurating the complex.

“At Danube, we believe in improving service to our customers. With a long-term strategic plan, the new investment demonstrates our commitment to delivering a broad range of innovative logistics solutions throughout the country. Additionally, the facility will see an introduction to new units, thereby leveraging the growth of the industry and creating job opportunities therefore boosting the economy on a whole. The strategic location of our new state-of-the-art distribution facility will help us cater to a diverse set of customers and facilitate a cost-efficient logistics structure to handle the anticipated increase in product volume in the next few years,” says Rizwan Sajan, chairman of Danube Group.
