Oman Cement Company plans RMC factories
Oman Portuguese Cement Products (OPCP) plans to set up three ready-mix concrete plants to meet increased demand from contractors. OPCP, which also produces pre-cast concrete blocks ad interlock paving tiles, plans to open two plants in Muscat and one plant in Duqm in the next three to six months, Syed Sadique Ali Rizvi, OPCP's commercial director said. The locations were picked for their proximity to construction projects. The company already operates one ready-mix factory in Sohar and one in Shinas. Raysut Cement recently bought out Oman Investment Corp's 40 per cent share in OPCP and 10 per cent of Silva Corporation's 60 per cent.
