ARABIAN Automobiles, the flagship company of the AW Rostamani Group and the largest automobile distributor in the Gulf region for Nissan, Infiniti and Renault, announced the expansion of its automobiles and spare parts distribution centre in Dubai Industrial City. The company will invest over Dh300 million ($81.6 million) to expand its current facility of 3 million sq ft to an additional 1. 5 million sq ft.

The expansion is a result of the company’s plan to increase its volume by 25 per cent or 45,000 units in 2013 – well above the automobile market indicator. The new expanded facility will have 20 repositories and serve as a state-of-the-art spare part distribution centre with a total area of 200,000 sq ft, and an additional functional storage space of 600,000 sq ft.

It has also invested in storage facilities for allied companies’ products that include three warehouses with a total area of 30,000 sq ft and storage space of up to 60,000 sq ft.
