Industrial Valley: Where World-Class Companies Go to Grow
The Industrial Valley of King Abdullah Economic City (KAEC) has emerged as one of the world’s most sought-after destinations for high-profile companies. Situated between the two holy cities of Makkah and Medina, Industrial Valley has become a vibrant and integrated live-work community along the Red Sea Corridor.
Investing in Industrial Valley
As the gateway between the East and the West, KAEC is strategically located on the west coast of Saudi Arabia.
Saudi Arabia is one of the largest recipients of foreign investment and one of the fastest-growing countries in the world. KAEC has a total area of 181 sq km, of which, one-third (63 sq km) is designated for the growing industrial hub.
To date, 120 local and global brands have invested in Industrial Valley.
International companies such Johnson Controls, Toys R Us, Ikea, Volvo, and Pfizer, are grooming mixed gender teams in the automotive, pharmaceutical, manufacturing, and retail industries to spur growth in the area.
Industrial Valley offers investors an opportunity to lease or buy professionally-managed, fully-serviced industrial plots that are ready to accommodate businesses in any industry.
Within the Industrial Valley is the Economic Cities Authority (ECA), a governing body set up by Royal Decree to be the single primary regulator for economic cities.
The ECA oversees the land development and acquisition in Industrial Valley’s Technology Park, Gas Zone, and the Bonded and Re-Export Zone. The ECA also issues licenses and permits and serves as a smart service center for investors and residents.
Industrial Valley is Where Diversity Lives
Saudi Arabia is primed for exponential growth and development over the next twenty years. Forty-seven percent of the country’s more than 32 million residents are young Millennials and Generation Z youths under the age of 24. The Saudi Arabia of today is one that promotes diversity, opportunity, and global connections.
The live-work culture of Industrial Valley provides an exceptional foundation for professional men and women to raise families. Conveniently-located waterfront residential communities like Oceana Villas, Marina Towers, and Bay La Sun District are beautifully designed with a varied menu of state of the art city services to meet the needs of both businesses and residents.
As part of KAEC’s industrial epicenter, Industrial Valley can be accessed by road, rail, air, and sea. Industrial Valley is connected to King Abdullah Port, the National Highway Network, and the Haramain High-Speed Rail Network. Investors and residents can get to Jeddah International Airport by train in just 25 minutes.
Industrial Valley is about growth and diversity, and recruiting investors and residents who value the same.
