Danube to open two new showrooms in Oman
Muscat, November 1, 2011
Danube Building Materials said it plans to open two showrooms in Oman during the last quarter of 2011 in bid to become key supplier of building materials in Sultanate’s ongoing projects.
The new showrooms will further leverage Danube's broad portfolio of building materials across the Sultanate's $7 billion worth of major projects in infrastructure, power, ports and road development.
Danube recently opened its first B2B Building Materials showroom in Salalah, the company’s 31st showroom and third in Oman.
The new 60,000 sq ft retail facility is strategically located in the heart of Salalah and features key building products like wood, steel, ceramic tiles, flooring, electrical, hardware materials and sanitary ware.
“Oman is on a strategic journey towards positioning itself as a premiere investment and tourist destination,” said its founder and chairman Rizwan Sajan.
“The race towards development is evident in the growing number of development projects currently being implemented in the country, particularly in strategic gateways like seaports and airports,' he added.
Recent industrial reports have shown that the Sultanate is embarking on the development of its key gateways like the Duqm port, the Duqm International Airport and the Salalah Free Zone.
Also, the country has announced four major projects that are envisioned to help key in more growth and development for the country.
These include the $771 million modernization of Dhofar power plant; the $120 million Salalah port development project; the $5 billion Salalah Freezone development project and the construction of the $1 billion medical city that will house the first regional multispecialty organ transplant and rehabilitation centre of excellence.
