NAPCO Oman expansion plan on track
NAPCO envisions being one of the GCC’s top five extruders in the mid-term with their expansion plan on track
National Aluminium Products Company (NAPCO) will introduce new products and services with an aim to broaden its reach across both regional and international markets, the company announced.
NAPCO has ordered two extrusion presses from Spain’s TECALEX, and a vertical powder coating line from Trasmetal, Italy.
The process of receiving commercial containers, 100 in total, for commissioned machinery components will continue until October 2015.
While the first press will be operational by September 2015, the second will begin by December 2015. The powder coating line will be ready by October 2015.
The company’s current capacity is 18,000 metric tonnes, with the current two extrusion presses and two additional fully automated extrusion presses expected to double that figure, enabling production of different profiles to better serve new markets.
Furthermore, the new vertical powder coating line will extend capacity from 7,000 to 27,000 metric tonnes.
Robert Holtkamp, CEO of NAPCO, said: “NAPCO’s expansion strategy is progressing as planned, with Phase 1 to complete soon as the new extrusion press and powder coating line become fully operational by October 2015, and Phase 2 to finish by early next year.
"Over the medium-term, we aim to become one of the top five extruders in the GCC," he added.
NAPCO has been part of several projects in Oman and the rest of the region. Its current portfolio in Dubai includes Citywalk, an upcoming retail destination on the junction of Al Wasl and Safa Roads; Onyx Tower, a 3-tower commercial project close to Emaar Business Park on Sheikh Zayed Road; and, Dubai Design District (d3).
