“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.
