OARC has produced coils across all product ranges and have now begun their ramp-up to full production.

The OARC Plant is a light gauge sheet rolling facility with a capacity of 140,000 tonnes per year. It includes a Hazelett Twin Belt Caster, which provides unique metallurgical properties that benefit customers in their business applications of aluminium sheet products. The successful combination of the industry leading technology of the Hazelett belt caster with the state-of-the-art Hot Rolling, Cold Rolling and Finishing Equipment supplied by FATA Hunter (another division of FATA S.p.A.) allows OARC to provide its customers value added products and generate long term, sustainable employment opportunities in Oman.
