Keeping in line with the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030, the Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (Kizad), the industrial powerhouse next to Khalifa Port, has one advocacy: “To invest the wealth derived from oil for the good of all in Abu Dhabi, to add value to the Emirate’s GDP.”
Companies choosing Kizad as their place of business have the advantage of reaching the markets in the Far East (Asia, China, Japan and Korea) as well as Europe, Africa, Russia and India since Abu Dhabi is centrally located.
Kizad caters to a wide range of industries that includes aluminium, steel, engineered metal products, petrochemicals and chemicals, pharmaceuticals and healthcare equipment, food, trade and logistics, mixed use, and print and packaging. It has business parks, and district and local centres. It offers firms pre-built warehousing units, storage units, light industrial units, land plots and staff accommodation, among others.
Furthermore, Kizad offers companies lower operating costs (including ulitities) and competitive leasing rates on all its facilities.
For the efficiency of tenant operations, it created an innovative system that implements the concept of vertically integrated clusters. The said clustering integrates the supply chain of upstream, midstream and downstream producers, bringing proximity, and ensuring supplies and materials are delivered in a timely manner along the lines, from the producers to the manpower up to the specialist companies.
Kizad’s strategic location is, no doubt, an attractive factor that helps it become a popular business destination in Abu Dhabi. It boasts modern transportation infrastructure that allows the easy transport of goods through port, air, railway and road networks.
• Food and petrochemicals firms, among others, call Kizad home
• The industrial hub offers warehouses, storage units and more
• It has the advantage of being close to sea, air and land networks
