The unit is the first dedicated lifting webbing factory in the Middle East and North Africa.
The new factory will produce nylon/polyester webbing material ranging from 25mm to 300mm wide to meet the group’s in-house requirements and the demand of the region’s construction, heavy industry and logistics sectors.

Bash-P manufactures a wide range of products utilising foundries and quality eco-compliant facilities worldwide. According to the company, products manufactured in the SAIF Zone facility will be produced according to international and British standards with a safety factor exceeding 7:1.
The US$210 million (AED 771m) net-worth Safety Services Group is planning a major expansion across Middle East and Asia during the next two years and aims to become a global market leader for quality approved products, complete with professional support services catering to the construction, industrial, marine, and energy sectors.
