Pallet and crate supplier Palletco is setting up operations at Kizad, the Khalifa Industrial Zone in Abu Dhabi, as the 44th company in the industrial zone by Khalifa Port.
Palletco, currently based in Dubai, has signed a AED 90.7m 50-year deal to set up a manufacturing facility in the zone’s plastics cluster and will start production early next year on a 23,000sqm plot of land.
The company makes plastic crates and pallets for the food and beverages and logistics sectors.
Palletco’s plastic packaging products are used in sectors including airports, airlines, pharmaceuticals, food processing, the beverage industry, retailing, agriculture, petrochemicals, warehousing, logistics and automotive production.
Other businesses already signed up at Kizad operate across sectors including food processing, plastics and aluminium mixed-use manufacturing.
CEO Khaled Salmeen said Kizad was also in negotiations to bring a GCC-based food manufacturing business to the industrial zone. Since opening in September last year, Khalifa Port has expanded its destinations from three up to 45.
Palletco’s products extend from plastic pallets in various sizes and designs to spill pallets, plastic pallet boxes, plastic crates, plastic jerry cans, IBC tanks and drums, mobile garbage bins, neck sealing machines and tapes, tray hand wrapper machines and cling films.
Palletco has a large stock of various types and designs of these products to meet customers’ requirements.
