Windows2000 wins His  Majesty's Award  for  Best Factory 2010

The Ministry of Commerce and Industry honoured the nation's best five private sector factories with His Majesty's Cup Award 2010 for their outstanding performance in achieving the economic goals set by the government. Windows2000 is among the five factories wining HM's Award for 2010.

Sohar Aluminium, Europoles Middle East, Oman Flours Mills, United Dates Factory Company and Windows2000 won the His Majesty's Cup 2010. In all, 40 companies participated in the competition. Yousuf bin Alawi bin Abdullah, minister responsible for foreign affairs, gave away the His Majesty's Cup to five companies, shields of appreciation to six firms and appreciation certificates to three manufacturing firms at a grand function at the Al Bustan Palace Hotel.

Maqbool bin Ali bin Sultan, minister of commerce and industry, and Oman Chamber of Commerce and Industry (OCCI) chairman Khalil bin Abdullah Al Khonji attended the award ceremony function.

Windows2000 is an Omani-based company specialised in the business of manufacturing and installation of uPVC windows and doors.

Said Al Saqri, Managing Director, Windows2000 receiving  His Majesty's Award for Best Factory 2010  from H.E. Yousof Al Alawi, Minister responsible for Foreign Affair, at Al Bustan Palace Hotel, in Muscat.


"We always focus on installing advanced technology and training locals in our enterprise. This might be the reason we were selected for the HM Cup," Al Saqri said. Selection criteria for best factories were designed very carefully by the ministry. Apart from Omanisation, marketing effort, financial performance, value addition, efficiency, quality, environment protection and safety systems were the other norms considered for selecting best factories for the award.

When asked about the current status of the industrial sector in the Sultanate, Al Saqri said: "The industrial sector in the Sultanate of Oman is doing well. "The total volume of the business is going up and the sector is recovering stability after being hit slightly by the global recession. Like all other companies we too had to go through the tough times. We were affected a bit by the global crisis. But, now we are doing well." Praising the efforts exerted by the ministry and the OCCI to promote industry sector in the Sultanate, he added that more should be done to promote new companies in the sector. From 1999, the competing factories were divided into two categories.

The first category is for companies with investment exceeding RO3 million, while the second category is for companies with investment less than RO3 million. As market leader in Europe, Europoles - at its plant locations in Germany, Poland, Switzerland and in Oman - produces poles, towers and columns made of high-strength spun concrete, steel, and fibreglass-reinforced plastic for an extensive variety of applications.

"It is a great honour for us. These kinds of awards and recognitions from the ministry will help us to work more," Abdullah Hilal Al Maqbali from Sohar Aluminium said. Sohar Aluminium, which won the HM's Cup, is the Sultanate's first company to enter into the aluminium industry. Talking on the challenges they are facing, he said: " The most important issue which has to be resolved is the shortage of raw material.

The government is doing a lot to help us. So we think so in future we will be able to move ahead steadily and maintain the momentum." To become eligible for the competition, a company had to achieve a minimum 35 per cent Omanisation, its exports domestic sales should be growing and it should not have incurred any losses for last two consecutive years.

The ministry endeavours through this annual competition, to achieve close coordination and joint efforts between the public and private sectors for the realisation of the targeted goals in the face of the new global economic system after the accession of the Sultanate to the World Trade Organisation (WTO), as the private sector has to maximise its readiness for the apparent, inevitable challenges

 

Windows 2000 to participate in Interiors & Buildex as platinum sponsor.

Muscat, Oman, 07 September 2008

Windows2000, an Omani organization in the business of the manufacture and installation of uPVC windows and doors, will showcase its leading position in the country's building and construction industry through its participation as the Platinum Sponsor of Interiors & Buildex 2009.

The international exhibition, which is organized by Omanexpo LLC, will be held on March 16-18, 2009 and will feature all types of building materials, construction supplies, heavy equipment and interior furnishings. Now on its sixth edition, Interiors & Buildex has grown over the years to become the biggest and most comprehensive event for the vibrant building and construction industry in Oman. 

"By drawing a large number of industry professionals to the exhibition, Interiors & Buildex 2009 will be an excellent opportunity for us to showcase our range of products directly to our target clients," said Said A. Al Saqri, managing director of Windows2000.

   

"For two years in a row now, we are glad to be a platinum sponsor and a major exhibitor of this international trade exhibition." Al Saqri pointed out that Windows2000 is currently a leading supplier of uPVC windows and doors both to local and international markets. Using state-of-the-art German technology, the company manufactures various types of products including tilt-and-turn windows, tilt-and-slide windows, and custom-made doors for specific applications. Up to 60 percent of the company's total production is used to serve the requirements of local clients while the remaining 40 percent is exported to other countries.

In operation since 1997, Windows2000 has already built a solid reputation in the industry for the quality of its products. Al Saqri explained that their windows are doors are particularly suited to withstand the harsh weather conditions in the Arabian Gulf, and they are also very effective in blocking ingress of noise, water and dust. In recognition of the company's achievements, Windows2000 was chosen last year as one of the awardees for His Majesty's Cup for the best factories in Oman.

"We are highly pleased and privileged to once again receive the strong support of Windows 2000 to Interiors & Buildex. Their presence will greatly contribute in ensuring that the exhibition would truly serve the needs of the building and construction industry in Oman," said C.J. Paul, general manager of Omanexpo LLC, the leading exhibition management company in the sultanate.

According to Paul, Interiors & Buildex 2009 is attracting a huge interest from many local and international companies as a result of the ongoing construction of multimillion-dollar projects in many parts of the country. With the prevailing high demand for all types of building materials and interior furnishings, Paul stressed that the exhibition will effectively serve as a platform for the entry of new products into the market, for strengthening brand awareness, and for bridging the gap between buyers and sellers.

Interiors & Buildex 2009 is also supported by Panorama and Dosteen Doors & Engg. Services as gold sponsors, Construction Week as the official publication, Arab Construction World as the official magazine as well as OER Dossier-Construction and Al-Maskan Magazine as media partners.
