Muscat – San­dan De­vel­op­ment on Mon­day an­nounced the readi­ness of the San­dan In­dus­trial Park, which is ex­pected to wit­ness the ini­tial open­ing on Jan­uary 22.

San­dan In­dus­trial Park is the first in­te­grated in­dus­trial city in Oman which is man­aged by the pri­vate sec­tor. The com­mer­cial ac­tiv­i­ties at the park be­gan to in­crease sig­nif­i­cantly with re­cent op­er­a­tions of var­i­ous auto showrooms, while open­ing of other ac­tiv­i­ties will fol­low, es­pe­cially after the ini­tial open­ing.

At a press con­fer­ence on Mon­day, San­dan De­vel­op­ment of­fi­cials con­firmed that San­dan In­dus­trial Park has all spec­i­fi­ca­tions and ser­vices as a unique model in Oman. The press con­fer­ence also saw the sign­ing of an agree­ment with Al Maha Petroleum Prod­ucts Mar­ket­ing Co to es­tab­lish a petrol sta­tion in the San­dan In­dus­trial Park in the com­ing months.

Muham­mad bin Su­laiman al Kindy, chair­per­son of San­dan De­vel­op­ment, ex­pressed hap­pi­ness with the achieve­ments on the ground in San­dan In­dus­trial Park within record time to be ready to do busi­ness and keep pace with the as­pi­ra­tions of in­vestors and vis­i­tors.

Kindy in­di­cated that the strate­gic lo­ca­tion on Muscat Ex­press­way and the in­te­gra­tion of ser­vices with the pres­ence of gov­ern­ment and pri­vate ser­vice in­sti­tu­tions all make San­dan In­dus­trial Park a favourable des­ti­na­tion for in­vest­ment. He noted that a num­ber of ac­tiv­i­ties have al­ready opened, es­pe­cially auto showrooms, which have an ac­tive move­ment. He ex­pected San­dan In­dus­trial Park to re­ceive more than 15 thou­sand vis­i­tors daily in ad­di­tion to thou­sands of work­ers in the ac­tiv­i­ties that it would in­clude in the fu­ture, which would ex­ceed 1,200.

Ali Su­laiman, CEO of San­dan De­vel­op­ment, said that San­dan In­dus­trial Park would be the central mar­ket for the auto trade in terms of pur­chase and sale through the ex­ist­ing showrooms and as­so­ci­ated com­mer­cial and in­dus­trial ac­tiv­i­ties.

He ex­plained, “In ad­di­tion to showrooms, the park will in­clude auto re­pair work­shops and the largest cen­tre for scrap. Com­mu­ni­ca­tions com­pa­nies, travel and tourism of­fices and fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tions, in­clud­ing Bank Muscat and ex­change of­fices are there to fa­cil­i­tate busi­ness.”

San­dan In­dus­trial Park in­cludes the largest clus­ter of used auto showrooms in the sul­tanate in ad­di­tion to other sup­port ser­vices for the auto mar­ket.
