100 new warehouses open at RAK FTZ Tech Park
Ras Al Khaimah Free Trade Zone (RAK FTZ) has opened 100 new warehouses in its Technology Park, for clients involved in trading as well as light and medium industrial manufacturing.
The free zone said in a statement that the development highlights its ongoing commitment to provide a full range of facilities to meet investor needs.
The statement added that the free zone embarked on the Dh47 million project in response to the rising demand for facilities where activities such as shipping, storage and product redistribution can be managed.
“The opening of the 100 new warehouses shows our initiative to offer modern infrastructure that is not only of the highest quality, but is also tailored to the specific requirements of individual business owners,” said Ramy Jallad, Acting CEO, RAK FTZ.
Supervised and managed by RAK FTZ engineers, the new warehouses are made from advanced, high-performance materials with reinforced concrete flooring designed to accommodate the heavier machinery that is often used in industrial manufacturing. They also have more electrical power capacity than their predecessors.
“We equipped the warehouses with valuable features to accommodate a broad range of industrial facility requirements,” said Eyad Ismail, RAK FTZ’s Engineering Manager. “Apart from having higher ceilings and bigger doors to enable loading and unloading of big trucks, the new warehouses come with removable precast hollow core walls. This means that when companies grow, they have the option to expand their floor space to as much as 8,600 square metres.”
Additionally, the new warehouses each have their own water supply tank and fire-safety mechanisms such as sprinklers, suppression systems and fire detectors. Each warehouse also comes with its own kitchen, bathroom and office. Further, the warehouse project includes new infrastructure such as roads, water and electrical connections, a central firefighting network, drainage, and other features.
