It added that the Q1 2015 figures were a result of streamlined production along with active marketing and branding initiatives. Despite low oil prices, the future outlook for the GCC remains optimistic and bodes well for Napco’s growth prospects, it commented.

Robert Holtkamp, CEO, Napco, said the financial figures for 2014 and Q1 2015 were “excellent” considering the volatility in oil prices.

“Napco’s use of new technologies to enhance its capacity has resulted in increased production, while our new marketing strategies have translated production into sales. Going forward, we will continue to seek attractive opportunities in traditional markets while exploring fresher territories and maintaining our focus on operational excellence. Our performance has given us confidence to continue with our expansion programme, which is progressing as scheduled.”  

Napco has been part of several landmark projects in Oman and the rest of the region.
