Paul Ebeling for Live Trading News:  Abu Dhabi state investment firm Mubadala has announced a partnership with Dubai Future Foundation and US conglomerate GE’s (NYSE:GE) additive division to establish the 1st microfactories in the region.

The MOU (memorandum of understanding) aims to see an Abu Dhabi-based microfactory serving industrial firms and Dubai-based microfactory focused on consumer goods and services. Both will support developments in 3D printing and small batch manufacturing.

“These Microfactories are a glimpse of what the future represents, combining innovation and educational ecosystems with fast, efficient and sustainable manufacturing capabilities. The possibilities are truly limitless,” said HE Mohamed Abdullah Al Gergawi, UAE minister of cabinet affairs and MD of Dubai Future Foundation.
