Dubai Industrial City, a member of TECOM Group, and M Glory Holding Group have opened Al Damani’s new 45,000-sqft factory, a major milestone in the manufacturing of electric cars to meet the rising demand for green mobility to reduce global carbon emissions.

The new plant has a temporary assembly line with a maximum production capacity of 10,000 cars per year.

The factory’s groundbreaking ceremony was attended by Dr. Majida Al Azazi, Chairwoman of the Board of Directors of M Glory Holding Group, and Mr. Saud Abu Al Shawareb, Executive Vice President of Industrial Leasing at TECOM Group, along with other top business leaders and media representatives.

Dr. Al Azazi said that, “This marks the official opening of the Damani Electric Vehicle Manufacturing Factory, the first and only facility of its kind in the UAE to meet international specifications where we will manufacture environmentally-friendly electric cars, contributing to global efforts to reduce carbon emissions and support sustainable development.”

“This temporary plant for the production of electric vehicles is located on a million square feet oasis and will be used until the sustainable and comprehensive facility in Dubai Industrial City is completed; it will be operational in the next two years and have a production capacity of 55,000 electric cars yearly,” the Chairwoman added.

As a member of the TECOM Group, Dubai Industrial City is one of the most prominent industrial and logistics hubs in the region, home to international, regional, and local manufacturing giants in a wide range of strategic sectors.

On behalf of Dubai Industrial City, Mr. Al Shawareb said that “the opening of M Glory in our community illustrates our dedication to boosting the manufacturing sector and our belief in providing a comprehensive ecosystem that enables regional manufacturers like M Glory to establish businesses and further the ‘Make it in the Emirates’ initiative.”
