The Industrial Development Group (IDG), which develops and operates smart industrial parks, announced, on Tuesday, the launch of Egypt’s first eco-sustainable park “e2 Alamein”.
The eco-sustainable park spans 2.7sqkm, and is ideally situated in New Alamein City, located in north-west Egypt, and one of the nation’s key fourth-generation cities.
The e2 Alamein will be fully equipped with a diverse range of world-class support services to all tenants.
It looks to provide a conducive environment where businesses can thrive without disruption. It includes: round-the-clock emergency services; a wastewater management system; a 24/7 maintenance team; conference space; shuttle bus transportation; childcare services; a food court; banks; and a licensing cetnre, among others.
The park will offer tenants industrial properties as small as 3,000 sqm, and pre-built workshops and warehouses starting at 400 sqm.
Shady William, Managing Director at IDG, said, “The e2 Alamein not only furnishes clients with the tools necessary to focus on growing their business, but we allow them to do it in a sustainable manner due to the SIA guidelines under which the park was built, making for a more sustainable operating environment, efficient use of resources, and maximum shared value created for stakeholders.”
William added that e2 Alamein tenants are set to benefit from multiple free-trade agreements, including COMESA, GAFTA, and the Egyptian-European partnership, among others. The park provides tenants with access to over 2.5 billion consumers across its footprint.
In 2008, IDG launched e2 October, Egypt’s first fully integrated industrial park. Today, e2 October is home to a diverse array of top-tier local and multinational companies as well as small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
In 2019, IDG broke ground on the East Port Said Industrial Zone for investors with plans to enter the Europe, Middle East, and North Africa (EMENA) region. The zone also gives investors the option of expanding their business in those markets whilst benefiting from the incentives that the zone provides.
IDG seeks to promote sustainable industrial growth through its parks, whilst introducing circular economy practices that help industries increase positive effects on their surroundings.
