The agreement was signed between Ahmad Abdul Rahim Al Attar, the Chairman of the Al Attar Group and Khalid Al Malik, CEO, Dubai Industrial City at a ceremony attended by Manea Al Attar, chairman of Al Attar Aluminium and Glass Corporation.

Ahmad Abdul Rahim Al Attar said: "The factory, to be located in Dubai Industrial City over an area of 1 million square feet, is expected to be completed during 2006. It will add value to the UAE's industrial sector and raise technology standards for the production of high quality glass and aluminium."

"We have used state-of-the-art technology and advanced equipment to create high-quality environment-friendly products that meet European standards. Our emphasis on quality is in line with Dubai's vision for global excellence and its larger strategy of economic diversification."

The Al Attar Group's chairman said that the company's choice of Dubai Industrial City as a location for the project reflects its belief in the vision of General Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and UAE Minister of Defence, to transform the industrial sector and make it a key growth driver of Dubai's economy. Dubai Industrial City, he said, is an ideal location for industrial ventures that are committed to quality and efficiency. The new factory will employ 500 workers and will also generate employment for UAE nationals, he added.

Manea Al Attar, chairman of Al Attar Aluminium and Glass Corporation said: "The factory's use of advanced technology and unique design set it apart from similar ventures. Quality, safety and a healthy environment for workers have been of utmost priority for us, while designing the factory. The factory has been designed by a German company, while the new equipment has been procured from Europe and the US."

"The factory will be completely air conditioned, and will have a water re-cycling system. It will be the first one to use solar energy systems, making it extremely environmentally friendly." Furthermore, it will be the first in the Middle East to deploy an advanced technology for coating aluminium that avoids the use of chrome, adding to the factory's environment friendliness.

The factory will offer restaurants, sports and other services and facilities for the employees, to provide them with a comfortable and productive environment.
