Geltec group, an International Leader in Nutraceuticals and Soft Gelatin Capsules, recently celebrated the opening of its new aed 110 million ($30 million) manufacturing plant at National Industries Park (NIP).
The facility’s opening also supports the strategic vision of the Dubai government. The pharmaceutical segment is one of the critical sectors within the 2030 Dubai Industrial Strategy, launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. The plant will manufacture dietary supplements and pharmaceutical formulations in soft-gelatin capsules and gelatin-enrobed tablet forms.
“The facility will be using the latest equipment sourced from Canada and Europe. We have also installed Tabgel technology,”
“We reviewed various locations for our global expansion and selected Dubai due to its strategic location and superb infrastructure.”Vikram Tannan, Director, Geltec Group.
The partnership between Geltec and Jafza began in 2000 when Geltec first opened its operations in the Jebel Ali Free Zone (Jafza).
“As the leading trade enabler, we aim to support customers and add value across the supply chain,”
“Our integrated approach allows us to mitigate many of the issues that businesses face when entering the GCC market, such as high start-up costs or access to raw materials.”Mohammed Al Muallem, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of DP World, UAE Region
