Ajman Offshore Company

Ajman Free Zone, the controlling agent of the Ajman Offshore Companies, was established in 1988 and was granted an autonomous status under the Emiri Decree No. 3 of 1996 by the Ruler of Ajman, H.H. Sheikh Humaid Bin Rashid Al Nuami. During the last few years, there is an apparent increase in the number of company formation in the free zone, so today Ajman has approximately 256 industrial firms which constitute 20 percent of the total number of industrial units in the UAE and ranks third among all the Emirates.
