New Designs


Al Anwar Ceramic Tiles Company SAOG enjoys the rare distinction of being the first manufacturer of ceramic tiles in the Sultanate of Oman.

The Nizwa plant uses machinery and technical know-how of leading Italian companies. Locally available raw materials, with frits, glazes and pigments imported from leading manufacturers in Italy and Spain are used for production.

A second line with a production capacity of 3 million sq. m. per annum was introduced in 2004. Continuing with its trend of consistent growth, Al Anwar introduced its third production line in the year 2010 and fourth line in the beginning of 2012 taking the total production capacity to more than 13.5 million square meters of tiles per annum.
