Sanitiser factory launched in Bahrain

A factory producing sanitisers has been launched in Bahrain with locals making up 40 per cent of its workforce.

The World Care Industries’ factory for the manufacture of sterile and disinfectant materials in Hidd was inaugurated by Industry, Commerce and Tourism Ministry assistant under-secretary for industrial development Khalid Al Alawi.

The event was also attended by factory chief executive Jamil Abukhalil and a number of senior officials from the ministry.

During the opening ceremony, Mr Al Alawi said the government continues to support the growth of investment projects including manufacturing facilities based in the country.

“The facilities provided by the government are a part of the strategy aimed at strengthening Bahrain’s position as a gateway to doing business with the region within a friendly industrial environment,” said Mr Al Alawi.

“Bahrain offers many advantages as compared to other regional economies which have helped in attracting major international projects to the country,” he said.

The factory has a number of imported devices and machines from several countries such as China, Jordan, Italy and Germany.


Currently, 15 employees work in the factory, 40pc of whom are Bahraini, and the plan is to add 10 more jobs this year, while raising Bahrainisation to 60pc, said a company official.

The factory uses state-of-the-art technology and processes to produce health care products, sanitisers and disinfectants.

Its product range includes chemical cleaning materials, cosmetics, personal care products, perfumes, hand sanitisers, multi-purpose cleaners and others.

Officials said they plan to gradually ramp up production and export to the wider GCC, Jordan, Lebanon, Europe and the US.
