In 2013, it merged with, Al Rawas Cement Products LLC (manufacturer and sale of modular blocks and kerbstones) and Al Ahqaf Ltd. Mining Co. LLC (engaged in manufacturing and sale of crusher material and sand). The company today manufactures and supplies Readymix Concrete Products (RMC) which includes readymix, aggregates, modular blocks and kerbstones in the Dhofar Region of Oman.
Oman’s construction sector is expected to expand in the years to come, the government is focused on infrastructure investment as a means to facilitate economic diversification and growing structural demand in the country’s ports, water and power segments. This growth is expected to continue to entice international investors to whom Kunooz Readymix is prepared to supply its portfolio of products.

Readymix concrete manufacturing is the primary business for Kunooz Readymix. Readymix concrete is a composite material consisting of the following main constituents: cement, aggregates, water, and admixtures. It is a material that can be cast into different shapes, is durable, is the most attractive construction material in terms of compressive strength (construction material with highest strength per unit cost), and its increasing use is fundamental for sustainable construction. Properties of concrete are modified and tailor made to customer specific requirements, through the use of innovative chemical admixtures, combined with the proper proportions of the various concrete constituents. For example, depending on the type of application and jobsite requirements, we can design concrete that is more fluid, stronger, develops strength faster and also retains workability longer.
Aggregates are an indispensable ingredient in Readymix concrete, asphalt, and mortar. Accounting for approximately 60% to 75% of Readymix concrete volume, aggregates strongly influence concrete’s freshly mixed and hardened properties. Aggregates not only increase concrete’s strength, but also can make the mix more compact, enabling applications such as weatherproofing and heat retention. Aggregates are obtained from natural sand or sand-and-gravel pits, hard-rock quarries, dredging submerged deposits, or mining underground sediments. On sourcing aggregates, we plan carefully to ensure a balance between the need for raw materials and protecting the environment, involving local communities in land restoration opportunities and maximizing the use of recycled materials.
