Industry in Maku Free Zone
There are currently 75 industrial units in Maku Free Zone which are located in 4 industrial Parks in the zone. These units include clothing, artificial teeth, electric furnaces, PVC profiles, etc.
Considering the existence of decorative and constructional stone mines in this area, the establishment of modern stone units is highly justified. Several large-scale units are currently operating in the zone. Due to the rich limestone, cement resources, lime and cement factories will not face any trouble in terms of supplying the factory with raw material.
Therefore, a huge cement production plant is under construction which in the case of launching will not only meet a large part of the domestic demand but this strategic product can also be exported. Regarding rich natural gas resources, establishing power plants have a high level of justification. Therefore, a large-scale combined cycle power plant project is under construction by Chinese investors.
In general, given the cheap energy sources, low labor costs, 20 year tax exemption, and the customs duty exemption for import of raw materials and machinery, Maku Free Zone is a highly recommended place to invest in the industrial section.
