The Hamriyah Free Zone Authority (HFZA) in Sharjah has partnered with Rafid Automotive Solutions to establish an integrated technical center within the free zone and provide vehicle repair, maintenance, inspection, as well as registration services and roadside assistance.

In addition to promoting Sharjah’s competitive edge, the partnership agreement will also fuel the effort by both parties to upgrade their services to investors in free zones.

The deal was inked at the headquarters of the HFZA by Mr. Saud Salim Al Mazrouei, Director of Hamriyah Free Zone Authority, and Mr. Salem Saeed Al Midfa, CEO of Rafid Vehicle Solutions, in the presence of senior officials of both entities.

“The HFZA’s cooperation with Rafid will undoubtedly improve the calibre of services made available to the business community in Sharjah, in line with the Sharjah government’s directives, which has always favored public-private partnerships to serve the wider community. HFZA will make the most of all accessible resources to deliver the best services with the highest standards of quality, efficiency, and effectiveness, in addition to developing innovative solutions that would elevate the journey of companies operating within its borders to go above and beyond their expectations.”

Mr. Al Midfa emphasized that Rafid offers its innovative solutions based on the latest technologies under the supervision of a team of professionals while adhering to the best international standards, especially when inspecting, maintaining, and repairing vehicles or providing support services that investors may need. “Our partnership with the Hamriyah Free Zone will play a significant role in expanding Rafid’s scope of work in various cities and regions of the emirate,” Mr. Al Midfa added.

HFZA, the second-largest industrial-free zone in the UAE, in addition to offering industrial and commercial plots of land, provides advanced infrastructure and modern facilities that strengthen external expansion plans for investors, especially in importing and re-exporting, to the world’s markets.
