MENA’s leading digital manufacturer Immensa has partnered with Intaj Suhar to enhance Oman’s localised manufacturing through digital inventory solutions

MENA’s largest digital manufacturer Immensa has enhanced its localised manufacturing presence in Oman by partnering with Intaj Suhar for Advanced Manufacturing LLC. 

The strategic alliance, announced today on the 16th of May 2024, was formalised by a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) and driven by a shared vision to boost local manufacturing. Through ISAM’s local capabilities and Immensa’s additive manufacturing and digital inventory solutions, both companies will collaborate to create a means for Omani companies to procure locally produced parts.

“ISAM is excited to enter this collaboration with Immensa, which will greatly enrich ISAM’s additive manufacturing capabilities AM,” says Majid Al Hinai, General Manager of Intaj Suhar.

“The partnership with Immensa, an esteemed AM manufacturer, aligns perfectly with ISAM’s growth strategy and presents a tremendous opportunity to expand our solutions in the attractive market of Oman.”

Immensa brings its expertise as a leading manufacturer in the global energy spare parts market, a sector valued at US$91bn of which the Middle East makes up 35%. The company brings vital expertise to this venture as it helps manufacturers move beyond legacy systems and invest in digital warehouse solutions. Together with ISAM, the companies will work to strengthen the supply chain, fulfilling Oman’s national aim to build a sustainable and competitive local market. 

“This collaboration also aligns with ISAM’s commitment to strengthen Oman’s manufacturing sector and contribute to the country’s manufacturing and in-country value strategies.” adds Majid. 

“ By accelerating the adoption of cutting-edge technologies, we aim to enhance the energy supply chain by AM technology adoption and contribute to the growth of the Omani economy. This partnership will drive innovation, foster growth, and make significant contributions to the manufacturing industry in Oman and beyond, positively impacting local and regional economies.”

Immensa, founded in 2016, is a leading additive manufacturing and digital inventory solution service provider in the MENA region. Serving a prominent client base including NOCs, IOCs and OEMs, the company operates state-of-the-art centres in the United Arab Emirates and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Immensa is the only company in this sector and region to control and own its entire digital supply chain, offering innovative solutions that span production on demand, assessment and digitisation.

“We are delighted to sign this MOU with an esteemed manufacturer such as ISAM and extend our solution in Oman,” says Sary Diab, COO of Immensa. 

“ It is an attractive market for Immensa and in line with our organic regional growth strategy. We also look forward to strengthening Oman’s manufacturing sector and accelerating its adoption of cutting-edge technologies – in line with the country’s Manufacturing for Wellbeing and In-Country Value strategies.” 

These core strategies, devised by Oman’s Ministry of Energy and Minerals seek to create a technologically agile and advanced manufacturing foundation. This will be driven through the utilisation of innovative production techniques and enhanced national spending on goods and services to boost the gas and oil sector.

"We are committed to bettering the energy supply chain, benefitting local businesses operating in the wider sector, and boosting the Omani economy,” adds Sary. 

To unlock additive manufacturing’s full potential, Immensa will embrace Digital Inventory Solutions, including storing digital twins of spare parts. This storage method comes with prominent financial advantages, including lower inventory ownership costs and cash release.

This method also eliminates significant shipping needs, reduces waste, lowers companies' carbon footprint and enables on-demand localised production. These sizable environmental benefits align with both Oman’s and global commitments to sustainability.

Through this strategic alliance, Immensa and ISAM will help solve the critical challenges of additive manufacturing process integration, boosting the strength, innovation and sustainability of Oman’s manufacturing market.
