Dubai Textile City
In 2000, TEXMAS and the Ports Customs and Free Zones Authority signed a landmark agreement that paved the way for the development of a specialized textile metropolis. In 2006, the association’s members pooled their resources to complete an astonishing project called Dubai Textile City, which was built on land designated for it near Warsan South at a cost of AED 250 million.
In April 2012, Dubai Customs presented TEXMAS with the coveted “We Shine through You” Award in recognition of the organization’s outstanding accomplishments and the role it has played in encouraging seamless collaboration between its members and Dubai Customs.
The success of DTC is evidence of TEXMAS’s mission to advance the commercial interests of its members. DTC is the embodiment of TEXMAS’s central objective; it features warehouses, showrooms, offices, and the exclusive Dubai Customs and Immigration Services (EZW). This far-sighted plan was essential in establishing Dubai as the primary textile trading hub serving the MENA region and Africa.
