Lalu Samuel, managing director of Clipsal Middle East FZC, said that the Australian company, which was earlier supplying these products through exports, had now transferred its 80 year-old tried and tested technology to the UAE for the factory.

Clipsal has acquired 30,000 sq. meters of land at the SAIF. Of this, the factory has utilised a built up area of 5,000 sq. metres in its first phase. Other phases will be implemented in a 10-year expansion plan.

Samuel said that the products manufactured at SAIF would be supplied to the UAE and other Gulf markets.

The factory will be officially inaugurated by Shaikh Abdullah Al Thani, chairman of the Department of Civil Aviation Sharjah, on June 12.
