Napco mulls move from Sharjah to DIC
Napco plans new manufacturing plant in Dubai Industrial City.
Napco, a specialist manufacturer of adhesives and coatings for the HVAC sector, is contemplating construction of a purpose-built, state-of-the-art plant in Dubai Industrial City.
“Our reason for choosing Sharjah initially was that it was an industrial base. At the same time we have been presented with a good opportunity in Dubai, which is starting to pick up again. We hope the recovery will continue and lead to sustained growth going forward,” says Napco chairman Dr Mumraiz K. Awan.
Dr Awan says the recent power outages in Sharjah had caused a backlog at Napco’s Sharjah plant, which was running 24/7 in order to catch up.
Napco’s latest quality accreditation is ‘UL Classified’ from Underwriters’ Laboratory of the US. “This is a comprehensive certification that takes production into account as well. It is a parallel standard we have adopted in order to complement our UK accreditation,” says Dr Awan.
Leminar Airconditioning is Napco’s official distributor in the UAE.
