Dubai Silicon Oasis (DSO) is an integrated free-zone high-tech park, which will now be home to Arabian Ethicals’ regional headquarters and National Distribution Center to import, store, and distribute the company’s life-sciences brands.

Ethical GM Dr. Stephan Stauffer and Deputy CEO of Dubai Silicon Oasis, Dr. Juma Al Matrooshi, co-signed the agreement in the presence of senior officials from both parties, officially welcoming Arabian Ethicals to the Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority (DSOA) community.

Operating from eight light industrial units, spanning a total of 2,880 square meters, Arabian Ethicals will utilize this move to expand its presence in the MENA region.
Currently, Arabian Ethicals imports more than 50 brands from various multinational pharmaceutical, consumer, and animal health manufacturers and distributes them throughout the UAE. The company aims to forge more partnerships with companies that offer innovative products in niche areas – such as oncology, immunology, rare diseases, and others, and make them available to patients in the UAE and across the GCC.

Welcoming the homegrown healthcare distributor, Dr. Al Matrooshi said:
“We are delighted to welcome Arabian Ethicals to DSO’s growing business community, a base of operations for businesses that operate across a diverse range of industries. The integrated technology park provides several offerings for business partners, and the flexibility to adjust as per their requirements.”
He added: “Welcoming Arabian Ethicals follows a series of healthcare-focused ventures by Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority, including the recent opening of Fakeeh University Hospital. We are confident Arabian Ethicals will have the opportunity to leverage DSO’s unique mix of healthcare business partners.”

For his part, Dr. Stephan Stauffer said:
“My team and I are passionate about healthcare and the opportunities we have to make our world a better and healthier place. Dubai Silicon Oasis is the ideal place for our brand-new regional headquarters and National Distribution Center, given its strategic location in the heart of Dubai, coupled with state-of-the-art infrastructure and easy access to key distribution routes. Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority also retains a passionate team that will enable us to realize our vision.”

The Light Industrial Units at DSO include an operational warehouse area and a double-story office area. The site is close to DSO’s entry and exit points, facilitating the transport of goods. The units feature a structural, mechanical, and electrical designed ceiling and complete fiber optic networking infrastructure. The LIUs are all equipped with an electronic sounder, comprehensive fiber optic networking, as well as CCTV, 24-hour security and fire alarm system. Built using eco-friendly, high-quality materials, the units also meet green building specifications.
