India’s leading tyre manufacturer, Apollo Tyres, has set up a new Middle East Operation’s hub at The Galleries at Downtown Jebel Ali, further inflating the number of tenants at Dubai’s fast growing business community, developer Limitless announced today (Sunday).
Apollo Tyres is the 18th firm to move to The Galleries’ A-grade offices and retail facilities this year, and brings the number of international and local businesses currently based there or undergoing fit out to almost 50.  More leasing contracts are in the pipeline. 
Bahaa Abouhatab, Project Director at The Galleries, said: “The arrival of yet another leading international firm at The Galleries further highlights its position as one of the UAE’s key business locations. Our growing Galleries community now has almost 50 tenants, with more on the way, and we are delighted to welcome Apollo Tyres on board.”
Satish Sharma, Apollo Tyres’ Chief of Operations in India, added: “The Middle East currently accounts for almost a third of our revenues from tyre exports out of India, and Dubai itself is the region’s biggest tyre distribution hub.  Our new office at The Galleries cements our commitment to Dubai – where we also have a 10,000 sq ft tyre storage facility – and enables us to boost our business across the region by addressing the growing needs of our customers here.”
Apollo Tyres joins China National Petroleum, Siemens, Arup, L’Oreal, Ericsson, Kraft Food, SPX Corporation and dozens of other firms at The Galleries, where 395,000 sq ft – over 50 per cent – of the total available office space is now taken. 
Benefits for tenants at The Galleries include the option of a Free Zone licence; an onsite Metro station; nearly 2,000 underground parking spaces and dedicated Facilities Management and Tenant Relations teams. There is also a growing selection of retailers and restaurants including five international banks, Fresh Plus convenience store, Desco printing shop, Oregano restaurant and Mushmaool Arabic eatery. 
The Galleries, on Sheikh Zayed Road, is less than an hour by car from Abu Dhabi and just 200 metres from Jebel Ali Metro station. The development sits in 215,000 sq ft of landscaped, communal grounds.
