The new state-of-the-art facility, Motherson PKC Harness Systems, is of strategic advantage to Motherson, which offers full system solutions to its customers and has the capability from design to prototyping and manufacturing to assemblies.

With the new plant, which strengthens the wiring harness business of Motherson in the UAE, Motherson now has eight facilities in the region (the other facilities are in Dubai and Sharjah), highlighting the UAE’s crucial role in the company’s global strategy.

Specialising in manufacturing wiring harnesses for commercial vehicles and other special purpose vehicles, the facility also exports them to its customers in Europe.

With a built-up area of over 11,000 square metres, the facility employs around 500 people and is built with an initial investment of about 10 million euros (Rs 88 crore). H.H. Sheikh Saud also toured the facility and was briefed on its advanced manufacturing technologies.

H.H. Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi said: “In Ras Al Khaimah, we have an integrated strategy to diversify the economy and achieve balanced growth across all sectors in a manner that ensures the sustainable development of our Emirate and adherence to our national objectives. This strategy lends great flexibility to the Emirate’s economic ecosystem, allowing us to keep pace with rapid changes across all sectors and to enhance our competitiveness to be among the most sought-after business destinations in the region and the world.”

Commenting on the occasion, Vivek Chaand Sehgal, chairman, Motherson, said: “Ras Al Khaimah continues to serve as a strategic base for our operations, bringing us closer to our European wiring harness customers. We are also thankful to RAKEZ for their encouragement to the industries in the region and their continuous support to Motherson.”

Ramy Jallad, RAKEZ Group CEO, said: “We are thrilled to witness the remarkable expansion of Motherson’s operations in our economic zone. It is a visionary step forward in shaping the future of the mobility industry. This state-of-the-art facility represents Motherson’s commitment to innovation and quality, showcasing Ras Al Khaimah and RAKEZ as key strategic hubs for their global operations. Motherson’s investment aligns perfectly with the Emirate’s strategic aim to become a global hub for innovation and enterprise.”
