One of the oldest block manufacturing companies in the Middle East, RAKNOR has expanded over the last four decades from being a pioneer in the industry to becoming the market leader, continually evolving to meet the growing demand for quality concrete products in the booming U.A.E. market. As the construction industry here has grown ever-more advanced and imaginative in the breadth and scope and of individual building projects, so too has RAKNOR increased its own expertise and sophistication to become the leading provider of masonry blocks both in terms of quantity and quality. Today, we are proud to say that our products are at the heart of the construction industry and are pivotal in the construction of local hospitals, schools, airport, office and residential complexes.
As a company we believe passionately in excellence of service, innovation and development. Along with those qualities, we remain committed to the Health and Safety of our employees and the creation of a sustainable future for everyone through protection of the environment. Our raw materials are drawn from our sister companies, Stevin Rock and RAK Rock, and in conjunction with those firms, we place great emphasis on evolving our production processes to ensure that the development of our industry does not conflict with the preservation of our environment for future generations.
Working towards the goal of developing our industry to the benefit of the entire community, RAKNOR, along with our sister companies, represents a direct source of major investment for the Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah. More and more industrial companies are choosing to relocate their operations to the area, drawn both by the prospect of being adjacent to the one of the world’s largest quarries and Saqr Port, the major bulk-handling port in the Middle East which is in turn positioned on the coast beside one of our partner quarries, Khor Khuwair.
A vital part of the construction industry in Ras Al Khaimah, RAKNOR has grown to become one of the key factors in the ongoing success of developing the area as a growing hub for the construction, industry and manufacturing sectors.
