“The Hamriyah Free Zone has developed a state-of-the-art business environment that perfectly meets the growing needs of the industrial sector, especially in the steel and fabrication industries. This would not have been possible had it not been for the comprehensive vision and sustainable future plans adopted by HH Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed bin Sultan Al Qasimi, Crown Prince and Deputy Ruler of Sharjah. We have hundreds of multinational companies operating in HFZA’s steel and fabrication sector, and we are consistently looking for new strategies to attract new investments in this area. Since Sharjah’s industrial sector has grown to be one of the most significant contributors to the emirate’s GDP, Hamriyah Free Zone is eager to encourage businesses operating in this area.”

The company, which has been operating in the free zone since 2021, said that “it’s expanding at HFZA due to several reasons, including the free zone’s being a global business hub as well as its strategic location and integrated services, state-of-the-art logistics infrastructure, facilities, and services that suit all businesses and industries.”

For her part, Ms. Mendonca stated that the decision to expand at HFZA was driven by many factors, including the region’s and the UAE’s rapid expansion in crucial industries, infrastructure projects, oil and gas, petrochemicals, and construction.

“HFZA attaches utmost importance to this industry and offers exceptional incentives and facilities that empower any business to raise their efficiency and increase their production capacity, thus effectively catering to the needs of the local and regional market,” Ms. Mendonca added.
