Aamal Company (Aamal), a GCC-diversified conglomerate, announced that its subsidiary Aamal Cement Industries has officially commenced operations at its newly opened cement block manufacturing plant in Messaid, Qatar.
The development of the plant is in line with Aamal's strategy for diversification into new high growth revenue streams and will support the wider industrialisation of the Qatari economy, the statement said.
The plant will manufacture a wide range of concrete building and paving products and will be one of the largest in Qatar by production volume with a maximum capacity of 85,000 blocks per day or 6,900 sqm of interlocking paving per day.
The German manufactured machinery and equipment for the factory can produce different varieties of building and pavement blocks tailored to specific customer requirements. The factory can produce solid and hollow masonry blocks of different sizes and paving blocks and curb stones in a wide range of shapes, sizes and colours.
At present, with demand outstripping supply, there is a significant opportunity for Aamal Cement to develop a high growth revenue stream in the concrete block industry in Qatar, the company said.
