Al Fajar Al Alamia, an Oman-based supplier of explosives to the construction industry, has signed an agreement with Fujeirah Holdings to set up a business in the UAE.

The new company will manufacture and sell explosives in the UAE under the trading name Geodynamics Mideast, according to an update on the Muscat Securities Market.

Al Fajar Al Alamia said a company unit, called Al Fajar Group, was currently buying explosives for drilling and blasting operations in the UAE from a third-party vendor.

The business added that creating a civil explosives company located in the UAE will deliver "exceptional benefits" to its drilling and blasting operations in the country.
