Muscat: Al Maha Ceramics, one of the leading ceramic tiles manufacturers in Oman, recently launched its new polishing and squaring lines at its factory premises in Sohar. The company unveiled its new lines under the auspices of Sheikh Ali bin Ahmed bin Mishary Al Shamsi, the Wali of Sohar, and in the presence of several high profile dignitaries, channel partners, contractors, tile distributors, real-estate developers, consultants, customers and members of the media fraternity. This is the first time this technology has been brought in the region.
“We are delighted to launch our all-new polishing and squaring lines, as well as to showcase some of our most exclusive product lines vis-a-vis this launch. Our tiles are engineered with cutting-edge global technology and materials keeping in view with European norms and standards; offering modern Italian and Spanish designs that help bring a unique, innovative, and aesthetic look and feel to one’s office and living spaces,” said Masoud Al Harthy, Chairman of Al Maha Ceramics.
“Al Maha Ceramics is a pioneer in launching differentiated products, and is committed to keeping abreast with the latest technological advancements in the field of ceramic tile manufacturing, which enables us to launch innovative products on a regular basis. In fact, we are adding two new sub-brands to our portfolio - ‘Reflexon’ which is a high polished digitally printed tile that is available in random patterns with superior strength; and ‘Diamond Edge,’ which is a superior quality rectified tiles range. Through the launch of our new polishing and squaring lines, with this launch we are focusing to boost our local market share, while also concentrating on exporting our products to other countries in the GCC and Mena region,” added Al Harthy.
“The new range of tiles is available in random patterns that give them a natural appearance; and it is noteworthy that Al Maha Ceramics is the only company in the Middle East to offer high polished tiles with less than six per cent of water absorption; given their extraordinary strength.”
