Sohar Steel is part of Middle East Traders Oman (METO), a well established and highly regarded business house that has been at the forefront of Sultanate's building materials industry.

From the humble beginnings as a building materials trader four decades ago, the group has since branched out into steel manufacturing. In addition to Sohar Steel and its sister venture Sharq Sohar Steel Rolling Mills LLC, the group also includes Middle East Conversion Industries, a plant specializing in Epoxy Coating and Weld Mesh.

METO's flagship business is Sharq Sohar Steel Rolling Mills LLC, which came in to operation in October 1996, with an initial installed capacity of 80,000 tpy. Within a year of commercial launch, a decision was taken to ramp up output capacity to 180,000 tpy. In a bid to boost product quality, and meet demand growth in Oman and the wider region. Not long thereafter a new furnace with a continuous output of 50 tonnes per hour was installed. These enhancements, coupled with a general upgrade of the mill, have helped boost capacity to the present, 300,000 tpy. A coveted CARES rating and ISO 9000 certification also attest to the plants operational standards.The video below gives a quick coverage of all sections of Sharq Sohar Steel Rolling Mill:

Diversifying its manufacturing portfolio, METO established Middle East conversion Industries in 2002. The company's Epoxy coating plant which provides fusion bonding Epoxy Coating Services for deformed steel bars, came on-stream in 2003. It is the only fusion bonded Epoxy coating facility of its kind in the Sultanate. A weld mesh plant was added in 2007, producing weld wire meshes of different sizes in line with international standards and customer specifications. Both units have obtained ISO 9001 certification.

The outlook for Sohar Steel and its sister venture remains promising, especially with the Omani government vigorously pressing ahead with its policy of economic development and infrastructure modernization.
