The inauguration was on the occasion of continued 39th National Day Celebrations for which only a few select factories in Oman were chosen for official opening by the government.
The message delivered on this occasion on behalf of chairman Sheikh Suhail Bahwan and on behalf of Managing Director Sheikh Ahmed Bahwan highlighted, “ We must re-assert our Group’s whole-hearted support for His Majesty’s vision for diversifying the Oman Economy through meaningful industrialization and value added enterprises. It is in line with this vision of His Majesty’s that the Suhail Bahwan Group has enunciated its own constant journey towards building, owning and representing world class businesses and brands internationally.”
Speaking on the occasion Mr Divyendu Kumar, Advisor to the Chairman of Suhail Bahwan Group, said, “It may not be an exaggeration to say that Bilad’s Sohar factory must be among the most automated not only in Oman but in the entire Middle East. This naturally leads to an extremely high and consistent quality of output that the Bilad Oman factory can provide to its customers. In addition, we take pride in the people at Bilad who have made this manufacturing organization a successful venture.”
“It is a proud moment for Bilad. Bilad has done large and extremely challenging projects in the past albeit maintaining a low profile. Growth and strong systems orientation will be the driving factors for Bilad in the coming years. Being a ISO certified company and having implemented an end-to-end ERP system, Bilad business would be on a strong footing to successfully meet our customer expectations,” said Bilad Oman GM, Kaushik Sinha.
