Umm Salal a ‘viable option’ for industrial, construction ventures

Umm Salal town, located to the north of Doha, is fast emerging as a favoured destination for those wanting to set up different kinds of industrial units, it is learnt.

This trend is being driven by favourable conditions such as ‘availability of land, good roads and reasonable rents,’ sources told Gulf Times.

A growing number of entrepreneurs, especially those with businesses related to the construction sector, are reportedly evincing interest in setting up units in the Umm Salal industrial area.

Operators of industrial units say a number of factories/workshops dealing with works such as fabrication, manufacture of grilles, galvanising and cladding, among others, are coming up in the Umm Salal area.

The town is expected to host more new industrial units of different kinds in the coming years, they point out.

A number of entrepreneurs are also said to be considering shifting their existing units from the Doha Industrial Area to Umm Salal due to various factors.
