Emtelle signs deal to build £42m Abu Dhabi manufacturing facility

Emtelle has signed an agreement to build one of the world’s largest manufacturing plants for fiber optic conduit and pre-connection solutions in Abu Dhabi.

Under a bespoke agreement with the Khalifa Economic Zones Abu Dhabi (KEZAD) Group, the Borders-based technology group will invest around £42m in its United Arab Emirates facility.

The new facility is part of a plan to meet the needs of a growing customer base in the Middle East and Asia Pacific.

It should provide Emtelle with the opportunity to expand its manufacturing capabilities and fiber deployments in the region and boost its presence in key markets such as the UAE, Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Iraq and Oman, as well as the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Australia and New Zealand .

At the facility, the company will operate machinery to provide customers with microducts, bundled ducts and pre-connection solutions for fiber optic networks.

Tony Rodgers, Emtelle Group CEO, said: “This is a major statement of intent from Emtelle as we will have the manufacturing space we need to increase our capacity.

“In turn, this will significantly shorten the supply chain and ensure security of supply for existing and new customers.”

Sanjay Nischal, Managing Director, Middle East and Asia Pacific, Emtelle, said: “The facility will leverage the end-to-end infrastructure provided to us by KEZAD to export 95% of our manufactured goods globally.

“Emtelle can now help its customers increase the speed and reliability of fiber network deployments, especially in fiber-to-the-home deployments.”

Mohamed Al Khadar Al Ahmed, Chief Executive Officer, Khalifa Economic Zone Abu Dhabi, KEZAD Group, added: “The UAE has always been at the forefront of technological advancement in the region.

“Emtelle’s establishment of its global central hub in Abu Dhabi speaks volumes about KEZAD’s ability to connect businesses to the world.”
