The logistics centre introduces state-of-the-art formwork maintenance and repair facilities to the construction community in Oman. “Customer care beyond solutions” is Doka’s motto to secure the highest customer satisfaction possible Muscat LLC (aka DOMA) could welcome. Heart-pieces of the new facility are the wash-booth (running on a water recycling system) where the steel components and the framed formwork panels are professionally cleaned, maintenance and repair machines and tables for easy and professional change of plywood of the framed formwork panels.

Clients can hold own stock of Doka formwork to keep their high-quality investments always in perfect condition. The solutions offered stretch beyond selling and renting of formwork to maintenance and repair offerings up to trainings for clients to use the products appropriately.

The locally well established company with their headquarters behind Zakher Mall in Al-Khuwair boasts of an own engineering team of seven experienced engineers for tailor-made formwork planning and two formwork instructors for on-site training of the clients workforce, guaranteeing quick and efficient response on the client’s request.
The 12.000 sqm storage yard including the 2.000 sqm storage and maintenance hangar (an investment of RO 750,000) serves for the stock as well as for the material currently in use on a rental base at 39 construction sites – representing a sales value of nearly RO 30 Mio.

Doka’s corporate network spans over 82 companies and representations with more than 130 stock-yards world-wide. As much as the group is innovative concerning their range of products, as conservative and extremely quality conscious they are. The functionality, reliability and durability of the formwork systems are assured by a long-standing international experience and a modern production in their plant in Amstetten/Austria (depreciation over eight years!).

The Doka Group is the major activity of the Umdasch AG in Austria. The vast majority of the shares of Umdasch AG are in the possession of the family Umdasch. Umdasch with Doka is one of the key players in the Austrian business community and already since a few years member in the “Austrian league of billionaires” – exceeding a minimum of one billion EUR annual turnover. 2012 it received the “Export Award” from the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber for their “Quality made in Austria” in more than 160 sales and logistics facilities in over 70 countries with close to 8.000 employees world-wide.”
