The light and medium manufacturing destination Dubai Industrial City has completed work on the extension to its 14,000-capacity labour village complex.

Comprising 26 buildings, it is the first labour complex in the UAE to comply with stringent Ministry of Labour regulations.

“As the region’s leading industrial destination, we are proud to be one of the first to provide socially responsible and cost efficient labour accommodation that is compliant with the new federal regulations as well as international health and safety standards,” said Dubai Industrial City VP Rashed Al Ansari.

“The building of the extension to the current labour village has been prompted by the strong demand from companies that aim to reinforce their position as responsible employers and demonstrate their commitment to the welfare of their employees.”

The complex is the first of several labour villages planned at Dubai Industrial City – a 560 million square feet industrial and commercial zone of facilities, warehousing, showrooms and offices.

“The labour accommodation is one of the value added facilities and ancillary services we provide to our investors such as logistics, warehousing, office space and industrial training that are central to our competitive advantage,” added Al Ansari.
