Norwegian paints and chemical company, Jotun Paints, inaugurated its new factory in Oman’s Rusayl Industrial Estate.

Built over an area of 6ha, the new facility has a production capacity of 50 million litres of paint per year.

The facility, which will house multiple departments such as production, warehouse, and administrative offices, has been constructed in compliance with the highest HSE standards and in accordance with Jotun’s environment-friendly policy, Green Steps, a company statement said.

Designed to emit less volatile organic compounds (VOC) emissions due to the reduced use of hazardous materials during construction, the facility will have a low carbon footprint.

Commenting on Jotun’s 30 years of business in Oman and the opening of the new facility, Bjorn Skjelby, general manager of Jotun Paints Oman said,” We embark on a new chapter and a huge step to an even brighter future.

“Our production capacity has steadily increased over three decades from one million litres in 1985 to over 25 million litres in 2014.

“It is the determined support of each and every member of our team that has contributed in making Jotun the most preferred choice of environment-friendly paint manufacturer both locally and regionally.”
