DBM, pioneer in the provision of factory space to SMEs and entrepreneurs:
1. Plaine Lauzun Industrial Estate
In the 1960s, the Government decided to establish a first industrial estate to provide a site with the necessary services (electricity, water, telecommunication and sewerage) and factory buildings for lease to industrialists so as to allow them devote their scarce capital resources for the purchase of production machinery and the provision of working capital requirements.
DBM was entrusted the pioneering role of construction and management of this first industrial estate, which was developed in the Plaine Lauzun industrial zone during the period 1967 to 1977: 9 building blocks, with all necessary infrastructures and services, were constructed on State lands, leased from Government (1 at Bell Village and 8 at Plaine Lauzun) to meet the increasing demand from industrialists. In the year 2008, DBM acquired the 11th building block at Plaine Lauzun from the Receiver/Manager of the Company “Manupan Limitee”.
DBM’s industrial estate at Plaine Lauzun has a total factory space of around 42,000m2 occupying 16 Arpents 86 Perches of Government-leased lands accommodating manufacturing units and other enterprises.
2. Coromandel Industrial Estate
DBM acquired around 57 Arpents of land in 1972 at Coromandel to establish a second industrial estate. DBM developed the land, brought the necessary services, and sub-divided it into smaller plots for lease to industrialists for development of their enterprises. DBM also constructed 19 building blocks, with all necessary infrastructures and services, during the period 1975 to 1980 for lease to industrial enterprises.
