Over the last three years, our target has been to increase our overall purchase of materials and services from the local market to over 50 per cent.”
He added, “Our priority has always been to local service providers, who we work closely with, not just to boost their business, but most importantly enhance their service offering, job creation and training, and Environment, Health and Safety procedures; 2018 is promising and we have several projects and tenders in the pipeline that we are looking to award to companies in Oman including SMEs.” Potential suppliers and service providers are invited to register via the Sohar Aluminium site https://www.sohar-aluminium.com/ to attend the symposium.
