Industrial Development Group (IDG) has announced the launch of Egypt’s first eco-sustainable park, called “e² Alamein,” to be developed over 2.7 square kilometers in the North Coast’s New Alamein, Invest-Gate reports.
Coming in line with the latest international frameworks for Sustainable Industrial Areas (SIA), the fully-equipped zone will present industrial units as small as 3,000 square meters, along with pre-built workshops and warehouses starting at 400 square meters, according to the company’s press release on July 7.
Granting access to over 2.5 bn consumers across the footprint, e² Alamein will offer a diverse range of world-class support services to all occupants, bidding “to provide a conducive environment where businesses can thrive without disruptions,” read the statement.
This includes round-the-clock emergency services, conference spaces, shuttle buses, childcare services, several banks, paired with a wastewater management system, a 24/7 maintenance team, a food court, a licensing center, amongst others.
“The park’s strategic location in New Alamein – a national megaproject and essential part of Egypt Vision 2030, within close proximity to vital centers of industrial, manufacturing, and trade operations, as well as key maritime ports, airports, and road networks, is set to facilitate local and global trade opportunities,” the Egypt-based industrial developer added.
Potential tenants of e² Alamein are plunged into multiple free-trade agreements, including COMESA, GAFTA, Egyptian-European partnership, and many others, it further stated.
Speaking of the newest addition, IDG Managing Director Shady William indicated, “We are extremely proud to be launching Egypt’s very first eco-conscious park, only a year after having broken ground on East Port Said Industrial Zone.”
“The successive launches, which have built on the track record and success of our flagship e² October park, only serve to underline the confidence clients place in us to develop turnkey industrial solutions that drive their business forward,” William was quoted as saying.
In 2008, IDG rolled out Egypt’s first fully-fledged industrial park, or “e² October,” which is home to numerous top-tier local and multinational companies, as well as small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), before kicking off East Port Said Industrial Zone for investors intending to enter Europe, Middle East, and North Africa region a year later.
