Oman’s Samail Industrial City, one of the newest industrial cities affiliated with the Public Establishment for Industrial Estates (Madayn), has witnessed dynamic investment activity last year as 19 projects were localized.

Covering a total area of 122,549 square meters (sq m), these projects are expected to offer more than 300  direct job opportunities when it becomes fully operational.

The localized projects are focused on mining and natural resources industries including metal products, doors and windows, tubes for ammunition, firefighting tools and equipment, marble and cement, and food industries such as meat products, dairy products, poultry, dates, in addition to medical and carton industries.

Currently, Madayn is managing the design and implementation of an infrastructure complementary project in Samail Industrial City. The project includes a dual-lane road spanning 1.4 kilometers from the roundabout at the main entrance of Samail Industrial City to the roundabout near the Al Sharqiyah expressway, which contributes logistically to land transport operations between the city and other destinations.

Further, the project includes the process of designing and executing sewage pipe linking phase 3 with the first phase of Samail Industrial City. The completion rate of the project has reached 48 percent and is expected to be completed in April 2022.

The Samail Industrial City, located in the Wilayat of Samail in Al Dakhiliyah Governorate, is divided into several industrial sectors including food, plastic materials, steel, marble, building materials, in addition to other industries such as furniture, petrochemicals, and support services sector such as warehousing.
