Hira Industries breaks ground for expansion of its RAKEZ manufacturing base
Hira Industries, a leading MEP and civil construction product supplier, is expanding its manufacturing facility in Ras Al Khaimah Economic Zone (RAKEZ), adding another 100,000-square feet of production space. The new investment is expected to create an approximate of 100 jobs within the Ras Al Khaimah ecosystem.
A ground-breaking ceremony to mark the beginning of the construction was held in RAKEZ Al Ghail Industrial Zone, which was attended by Sheikh Mohammed bin Humaid Al Qasimi, RAKEZ Managing Director, top-level management of Hira Industries, as well as Hira’s project consultants. The company’s expansion and diversification plan will add extra capacity of storage for the manufacture of building and construction products as well as expand Hira Industries’ operations with new products to its existing lines.
Further expansion in the building products sector
“We have been successfully serving the building and construction industry since 1980 whilst offering conventional solutions. Our presence in the UAE and global markets are a testament to our extraordinary services and product quality,” noted Prakash Sarvaiya, Managing Director of Hira Industries. “We continue to expand in the building products sector thanks to our team, partners and associates in the UAE and globally. The debut of our new RAKEZ expansion adds to our list of achievements that we are proud of.”
Ramy Jallad, Group CEO of RAKEZ, said that over the years his organisation had witnessed Hira Industries’ continuous growth within the RAKEZ ecosystem. “This event marks another exciting chapter for the company, and we are thrilled to be part of its journey,” he enthused. “Success stories as such push us to serve our clients better by providing them various solutions at each stage of their development. We aim for our business and industrial zones to be home to flourishing brands that cater to local and international markets.”
Established by the Government of Ras Al Khaimah in the UAE, RAKEZ currently hosts over 15,000 companies coming from over 100 countries and operating in more than 50 industries.
In the past four decades, Hira Industries has successfully expanded its activities in the GCC, India, South East Asia, Americas, Australia, New Zealand and Africa, and is set to open new facilities in Vietnam and the USA in the near future. Just recently, the company was named as the Supplier of the Year at the MEP Awards 2021.
