OARC

Corporate Overview

Oman Aluminium Rolling Company SPC (OARC) was established in 2011 as a green field aluminium rolling mill plant at the Sohar Industrial Estate to produce flat rolled aluminium products. The OARC plant is one of the largest added value projects in the aluminium processing industry in the Sohar Industrial Area, with a total cost of 385 million USD.

The annual capacity of the plant is 140,000 metric tonnes per year of multi-purpose aluminium coils, which are sold in the local markets and exported to the Middle East, Asia, Europe, Australia, North and South America. The plant is located next to the aluminium smelter at Sohar, where smelted aluminium is transferred directly to the rolling process and adjusted to various alloys, depending on market needs. The company signed a long-term contract with Sohar Aluminium Company to get smelted aluminium directly, as a basic reason for the project.

The OARC factory is producing aluminium coils from 75 microns to 5.5 mm thick and up to 1933 mm wide. The alloys produced are of the 1xxx, 3xxx, 5xxx, and 8xxx series. The aluminium coils are used in various industries, such as manufacturing food containers, ceilings, building and construction materials, heat exchangers, etc.

In 2014, OARC added a new aluminium coil coating unit with a capacity of 25,000 tons per year, built as an expansion to the existing OARC rolling mill in the Sohar Industrial Estate (SIE) in Oman. The facility is capable of coating aluminium for a variety of customers, including construction, transportation, and the industrial and consumer durable goods sectors. The Coil Coating Line is the first of its kind in Oman. The total project cost was OMR 32 million (USD 83 million). The plant was built to meet environmental and safety standards, and is equipped with modern industrial technologies for the aluminium coating industry. As a result of committing to such high safety standards, the plant has exceeded 5 million accident-free man-hours, during the construction phase.

OARC is committed to producing the best quality products, following national and international standards, in order to fulfill market needs and achieve customers’ satisfaction according to its quality policies and continuous improvement. The company aspires to become a world-leader in rolled aluminium production.
