AAC expands presence at Dubai Industrial City with state-of-the-art distribution centre

The 350,000sqft Parts Distribution Centre will be a hub for industry innovation

Arabian Automobiles Company (AAC), the flagship company of the AW Rostamani Group, has commenced the development of a parts distribution centre that will serve as a hub for industry innovation and excellence at Dubai Industrial City, the region’s leading manufacturing and logistics hub.

The project’s groundbreaking ceremony at Dubai Industrial City, part of TECOM Group, was attended by Saud Abu Alshawareb, Executive Vice President, Industrial, TECOM Group; Hussam Baghdad, Senior Director, Automotive, AW Rostamani; and Thierry Sabbagh, Divisional Vice President, President KSA, Middle East, Nissan and INFINITI.

Located on a land plot spanning more than 700,000sqft, the logistics storage and distribution centre marks an expansion of AAC’s presence at Dubai Industrial City, where it already operates a central logistics centre, and reflects its commitment to providing enhanced customer services by strengthening its parts value chain for Nissan, INFINITI, Renault, and AWR Trading entities in the UAE.

The state-of-the-art centre will have a built-up area of more than 350,000sqft and upon completion in 2025, will house 150 employees to deliver enhanced safety, productivity, and commercial efficiencies in line with international operating standards, according to a corporate press communique.

Hallmark of excellence

“Prompt and seamless customer service will be the hallmark of excellence as global automotive demand continues to surge,” stated Alshawareb.

“AAC’s new advanced and automated facility in Dubai Industrial City’s automotive cluster will support the vision of Dubai Economic Agenda ‘D33’ to strengthen the value chains for domestic goods and services. Logistics facilities that leverage automation and advanced technologies will not only deliver improved efficiencies and capacity, but also contribute to the UAE’s trade activity, helping to reinforce its position as a global trading hub,” he continued.

“Our investment in the new parts distribution centre marks a significant milestone in our journey towards automotive excellence – this state-of-the-art facility underscores our commitment to delivering unparalleled quality and service to our customers,” remarked Baghdad.

“The expansive facility and its substantial storage capacity not only strengthen Nissan’s business operations but, more importantly, benefits our customers,” commented Sabbagh.

Construction partner

UAE Headquartered, Group AMANA is the construction partner for this project. AMANA’s strategy for redesigning the pre-engineered steel building (PEB) structure involves implementing a modular methodology for assembly and erection, utilising off-site precast works for concrete elements, and integrating BIM for enhanced project coordination.

With the new facility, AAC joins an impressive roster of UAE-based business giants that are part of Dubai Industrial City, home to more than 1,000 local, regional, and international customers, in addition to over 300 operational factories.

The region’s leading manufacturing and logistics hub, Dubai Industrial City was launched in 2004 with an intelligent masterplan promoting cross-sector collaboration with dedicated zones for the base metals, machinery, minerals, F&B, transport, and chemical industries.
