Production Facility For Diagnostics / Reagents
i am planning to establish a facility for the production of diagnostics/reagents at the state of kuwait (including r & d.) for:
1. Clinical chemistry
2. Immunology (diseases of humans and animals (if possible))
the vast majority of diagnostics come to kuwait and other gulf countries (including iraq) from the west (europe & usa). So, the production cost and selling prices are usually high.
Products manufactured in kuwait have priority - if they meet the standards - in kuwait and other gcc (gulf countries council) countries over products coming from other countries moreover, kuwait has a very high advantage in being close to iraq, so products made in kuwait can be easily exported to that country, and as you may know that iraq is being re-built again after the destruction created by the wars, and their market is huge.
We have advantages in kuwait, because the electricity cost is among the cheapest in the area and probably in the world , and there are no taxes, and the industrial bank here may support me as a kuwaiti citizen with a loan that may reach up to 80% of the cost of the project if they are convinced with the project. Hence, if a manufacturing facility is established here in kuwait to produce different types of diagnostics, will be a unique one in the area. I am sure that the costs of production and selling will be cheaper than the western-made ones.
So, i need technical information that will help me in the preparation of a feasibility study (including equipment, technology of production, manpower details, buildings specifications, …etc) to be submitted for the public authority of industry and industrial bank of kuwait. Moreover, i need to know if there is a company or a firm that has the experience and is willing to participate as a technical partner and (partially) financial partner in this project (since i can generate approximately 75-80% of the budget as i mentioned above).
I am looking to hear from you soon
