At the exhibition, DI is displaying cutting-edge capabilities and innovation of its subsidiaries across the manufacturing and services sectors, including Emirates Insolaire, Emirates Float Glass, Emirates Glass, Lumiglass Industries, Emirates Building Systems, Marmum Dairy Farm, Dubai Cranes, Gulf Dynamic Services, Drive Dubai, Lite-Tech Industries and Gulf Metal Craft.

The participating DI companies are presenting their complete range of products and services at the exhibition. Revenues from DI’s manufacturing and contracting business touched Dh1.43 billion as on December 31, 2013, driven by the growth achieved across its subsidiaries.

Khalid bin Kalban, managing director and CEO of Dubai Investments, said: “The GCC has made massive strides in the manufacturing sector over the years and the region is one of the fastest growing markets across the globe today, backed by a world-class infrastructure. A strong manufacturing industry serves as one of the cornerstones of socio-economic development, including foreign trade, and this has helped unlock exciting growth opportunities for the Gulf economies — particularly in the non-oil sector.”

He added: “Dubai Investments is one of the leading players in the manufacturing sector and our subsidiaries already have a strong presence in the UAE and GCC markets. Our participation in the 15th GCC Joint Exhibition is a great opportunity to showcase our capabilities, innovation as well as our expertise across diverse sectors, to tap into partnership opportunities with different companies, and network with prospective investors which will go a long way in strengthening our presence across the region.”

Among other exhibits, DI has brought to the centre stage the first-of-its-kind innovation in solar glass from Emirates Insolaire. A unique technology, the world’s first coloured solar panels are set to revolutionise the construction industry globally with enhanced aesthetics besides being highly sustainable due to their ability to generate electricity on their own.
