The Walvis Bay EPZ does not restrict investors to an industrial sector, as is typically found in similar zones. Investors are free to engage in any manufacturing and value addition processes of their choice, anywhere in Walvis Bay. The Walvis Bay EPZ is looking for investors to set up production plants in the following priority industries:
- Textile and garment industries
- Footware, bags & leather or imitation leather products
- Manufacturing & assembling of electronic equipment
- Processing industrial products, food stuff and beverages
- Industrial plastic (without chemical materials)
- Assembling or producing electrical household products
Whatever the choice, however, investors deserve to know that besides the unequalled EPZ package of incentives, Namibia also offers a vast base of unexploited raw materials and virgin investment areas. Since the establishment of the WBEPZMC, the following companies were granted EPZ licenses and are operating in the Walvis Bay zone. Companies already operational in the EPZ are involved in:
- automotive parts for motor vehicles
- assembly of vehicles
- granite processing
