  • A strategic agreement between KIZAD and All India Plastics Manufacturers’ Association highlights ‘KIZAD Polymers Park’ as an industry enabler

Abu Dhabi, 20 August, 2019: KIZAD (KIZAD), a subsidiary of Abu Dhabi Ports, has signed a strategic agreement with All India Plastics Manufacturers’ Association (AIPMA) to support Indian polymer investors in expanding their geographic and economic reach through KIZAD. The move also highlights KIZAD Polymers Park as a tailor-made manufacturing and distribution location for the industry.

The agreement, signed earlier this month in Delhi, underscored KIZAD Polymers Park’s access to raw materials from regional producers and connectivity through KIZAD’s major transport links, which include Abu Dhabi Ports’ flagship deep-water port, Khalifa Port as well as international airports.

Samir Chaturvedi, CEO, KIZAD, said: “This agreement is an excellent step towards supporting the growth of India’s massive plastics and polymers businesses. KIZAD Polymers Park has been specifically designed to enable this sector to be cost-effective and time-efficient in an ideal strategic location which has the perfect logistics for companies to expand or enter into foreign markets.”

Meela Jayadev, President of AIPMA said: “India has an enormous plastic and polymers manufacturing industry and the UAE is one of our top five import markets. The MoU with KIZAD and the potential to work with them to increase our mutual opportunities in new markets is an excellent strategic move on both our parts.”

KIZAD Polymers Park caters to a variety of different polymers segments, including industrial use, such as packaging, construction, and semi-finished products; end-use customers, such as household goods, agriculture and hygiene products; material science, including compounded and composite materials, and 3D Printing. Currently 19 polymers companies are based at KIZAD, including Gulf Compound Blending, Cosmoplast, Interplast, Industrium, Songwon Polysys and Schmidt Middle East. These companies are already leveraging KIZAD’s interconnected business facilities as well as smart technology platforms such as Maqta Gateway, Abu Dhabi Ports’ online community business platform.
