Its about rethinking business strategy for scalable, secure and efficient future
The UAE has no dearth of manufacturing companies with strong brand names. Take Damas, a jewelry maker founded in Dubai as early as in 1907. Or Al Khaznah, an Abu Dhabi-based tannery that produces an exclusive range of innovative, biodegradable camel leather. In the vehicle industry, defense vehicle manufacturer Nimr Automotives has made a name for itself in North Africa’s harsh desert environments.
More recently, Tesla-style start-ups have popped up in the automotive sector. Zarooq Motors, the first car manufacturer with facilities in the UAE and Emirati management, produces the high-performance SandRacer sports car. It has been joined by W Motors, the UAE’s first supercar manufacturer.
UAE also has a fair share of technology manufacturing, including Falcon Technologies International, which produces high-end data storage products, and KhalifaSat, the first satellite produced here without external partners. And believe it or not, the country already has its own smartphone brand, Four, launched last year by Emirati entrepreneur Faisal Al Bannai, who is also CEO of Axiom Telecom and of cybersecurity firm DarkMatter.
The avenues are open for UAE brands to make or expand their footprint in the global markets. Currently, the manufacturing sector contributes to around 15% to the GDP and the efforts are on to boost the contribution of this vital sector.
