The company officials told Khaleej Times here that the expansion plans covered two block factories, one hollow-core slab factory and a cement factory, all located at the existing Nael Cements factory premises at Al Ain.
The two block factories which will manufacture about 38 products will together have a capacity of 200,000 blocks per day. The new units are expected to be ready by March, the officials said. The Nael Cements’ existing block factory has a capacity of 100,000 blocks per day.
The new hollow-core slab factory with a capacity of 1500 square meters of slabs of varying size per day is also expected to be ready by March. The existing unit also has a capacity of 1500 square meters per day.
The new cement factory of Nael Cements will have a capacity of 2500 tonnes per day and was expected to be complete by end of February, the officials said. The capacity of the existing unit is 2,000 tonnes per day.
Asked whether the financial crunch has affected the company’s performance, they said, “We have enough orders at the moment, but we don’t know how it will affect us in future. We will be able to make a more reliable assessment of the impact only by April or so.”
