In the year 2000, TEXMAS signed an agreement with the Ports Customs and Free Zones Authority to create a dedicated textile city. Land was allocated at Warsan South and Dubai Textile City was completed in 2006 at a cost of AED 250 million, which was borne by the members of the association.

In April 2012, in recognition of TEXMAS’S achievements, Dubai Customs presented the organization with the “We Shine through You” Award for facilitating smooth working between its members and Dubai Customs.

Offering warehousing, showroom and office space, dedicated Dubai Customs and Immigration Services (EZW), Dubai Textile City embodies TEXMAS’S mission of facilitating the success of its member merchants. Dubai Textile City has been a major factor in positioning Dubai as the undisputed textile trading hub for the MENA region and the African continent.
