Rak Ceramics said the four-storeyed buildings have a total of 238 rooms and can accommodate 1,428 employees working at its manufacturing facility.
The company has also provided each room with television and internet cables, while the entire facility has been built near basketball and volleyball courts to allow employees to exercise and socialise through sports, said a company statement.

'It has always been RAK Ceramics' commitment to uphold the interest of our employees, who we consider as one of our most important assets, in line with our CSR program.'
'We believe that the construction and completion of the new accommodation facility will be a major factor in further boosting the satisfaction level of our employees and driving productivity across all operations of RAK Ceramics,' he added.
