Who we are
Through A Legacy of Innovation
Mr Brian W Ritchie started an explosives manufacturing and trading company in the Sultanate named “Hajar Explosives” in 1979. It was set up in collaboration with ICI Nobel’s Explosives Company, at that time the largest commercial explosives company in the world.
As the leading manufacturer and supplier of industrial explosives and accessories in Oman, the company delivers value, expertise and ensures reliable supplies and services to its partners allowing them to achieve the best possible results on all their projects.
Over the years, the company has adopted both forward and backward integration strategies for gaining better control over the supply chain, thus providing a complete solution to the clients and mire values for their money.
Backward integration is achieved with the company’s own explosives manufacturing plants while forward integration is done with its drilling & blasting division and the mining division, supported by earthmoving and mining operations.
Each blasting project is different, and it needs special skills and technologies, particularly in terms of maintaining strict. In order to meet the client’s varying requirements within the mining and civil sectors, the company provides appropriate skills and resources to undertake the whole range of drilling & blasting activities.
Al Fajar Al Alamia owns a complex portfolio of companies whose specialisations support the enterprise goals. These companies’ synergy ensures the best results to the client’s satisfaction. All the operations are ISO 9001:2015, 14001:2015 and ISO 45001:2018 certified.
Al Fajar Al Alamia Co. SAOG builds three things: Products, Service and Possibilities.

Al Fajar Al Alamia can transform any project into success by providing cost-effective applications, across various sectors, through innovation, customisation and material substitution. The company’s various divisions are diverse in terms of skills, technology and operations.
EXPLOSIVES DIVISIONToday, Al Fajar Al Alamia is a leading name in the industrial explosives, thanks to its manufacturing capabilities, deep understanding of the civil explosive business, markets, storage capacity and of-course, its people. And the company also provides end-to-end logistics support for fireworks display
DRILLING & BLASTING DIVISION
The Group has the ability to convert opportunities into sound business propositions, which has helped the company to expand its business operations into drilling & blasting sector. Thus, over the years, four companies were acquired to support the Group in its ventures.
The Mining Division is the bedrock that we expect the future of the Group can be firmly built upon. The focus remains on Oman’s bountiful mineral wealth – gypsum, industrial salt, iron, chromite, limestone and rock products such as aggregate, armour, road base, to mention a few.
The Earthworks Division was formed to complement the already established Explosives and Drilling & Blasting Divisions. With the introduction of Earthworks Division, the Group is now suitably to provide a complete solution to clients in the construction and mining sectors.
