Setting of on a bold new venture, Epoch Trading is set to brave the world of manufacturing, with the opening of a CD-R factory in Iran later this year. The company is already one of the most successful computer marketing and distribution businesses in the region, counting Samsung and Mitsumi among its clients.

The factory will be located two hours west of Tehran in Takestan. It is part of a joint venture between Dubai-based Epoch Trading and Iran-based Reezmouj System, which will lead to the setting up of a new company called MEDISK.

MEDISK will be the producing arm, with Epoch Trading in charge of international sales and marketing and Reezmouj System in charge of marketing and distribution for the domestic market.

"As the IT market grows dramatically in our region, the need for storage media increases exponentially," says Amir Taheri, president of Epoch Trading. "As a distributor of storage media, we have seen a tremendous growth in consumption of CD-Rs in the last ten years, and as consumption of CD-Rs and shortly DVD-Rs increases dramatically in our region, the time is right for us to open a factory to cater for this increasing market. Iran is a unique place to produce CD-Rs. There is access to plenty of very well educated people at competitive salaries. Energy, land and construction costs are very competitive and Iran is perfectly located for the international market," explains Taheri. 101
