Hotpack Global, the UAE-based global leader in food packaging products, has launched its largest manufacturing plant in National Industries Park (NIP), Dubai.
The company announced that it has invested an estimated $68 million into the facility. The new plant marks a significant step in Hotpack’s vision to emerge as the premier global food packaging manufacturer by 2030.
The purpose-built manufacturing plant will produce Hotpack’s high-performance and sustainable PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) packaging products. The facility is also going to function as a center for various Hotpack arms with manufacturing, e-commerce, logistics, and marketing being localized in one building.
“We are excited to unveil the largest and our most technologically advanced facility yet. In keeping with our pledge to spearhead the eco-friendly food packaging products initiatives to decrease pollution, the plant generates zero percent waste and is environmentally friendly. The NIP plant is equipped to consume 100 percent post-consumer recycled (PCR) PET material in the extrusion process ensuring a circular supply chain. We are also integrating various divisions of Hotpack under one roof and localizing our operations to increase efficiency. The 500,000 square feet facility will serve as our one-stop shop for high-performance and sustainable PET packaging. With our large warehouse that has a capacity of 35,000 pallet storage spaces, this facility will also function as our export hub.”
Mr. Abdulla Al Jasmi, Head of National Industries Park, said that At NIP, we always align our work with the developmental goals of the UAE’s wise leadership. The addition of manufacturers like Hotpack will significantly contribute to our position as a leader in the UAE’s industrial sector. The government aims to boost the manufacturing sector’s contribution to the economy over the next few years by creating an industrial identity to support domestic products and promote the sector globally. NIP will work with manufacturers like Hotpack to support this goal.”
Hotpack Global is recently certified as a ‘verified exporter’ by Dubai Industries and Exports, the trade promotion entity of the Department of Economy and Tourism (DET). The NIP facility will further augment Hotpack’s logistics capabilities and provide a major boost to its export growth strategy.
In line with its global vision, Hotpack has exercised an aggressive expansion strategy in the Middle East. Most recently, the company opened its first manufacturing plant in Doha, Qatar to produce Hotpack paper products. Moreover, the company has also expanded its eCommerce store to all GCC countries and launched numerous sales centers in Oman, Saudi Arabia, and Bahrain to augment Hotpack’s manufacturing and logistics operations.
Hotpack Global will continue expanding in the middle east with a focus on supply chain optimization. The company announced that it will soon be launching new manufacturing plants in Saudi Arabia, India, Malaysia and Serbia in the coming months.
