The Oman Drydock Company (ODC) has appointed a new Chief Executive Officer of its company.

Said bin Homoud Al Mawali will succeed Stephan Aumann.

The position will require the CEO to head corporate strategies, as well as overall policies and procedures.

Al Mawali will be responsible for ensuring all crucial employees contribute constructively to the firm’s development, the Oman Daily Observer claims.

Prior to working for ODC, Al Mawali had been employed by the Oman Tank Terminal Company since February 2014, bestowing leadership and governance to the Executive Manager.


“I am excited to take on the role of CEO at ODC and work with the new management team that will lead the ship repair services in Oman into the future,” Al Mawali reported on his new position.

“The prospects for ODC are bright and I look forward to use the collective experience of the ODC team to deliver excellence in marketing, projects execution, financial sustainability and in general any focus area that make our customers more satisfied.”

Al Mawali has 21 years of experience with construction, asset management, plant operations, supply chain, cost control, business development, merger, and acquisitions.

He has worked for Petroleum Development Oman, Occidental Oman, Sohar Aluminium, and Oman Oil Company.

uPVC pipes, safety glasses and Spetz app launched

Round up of this week's launches covers uPVC piping, safety glasses and new Spetz app

This week has seen a range of new product and service launches for the construction trade.

Vinyl Pipes has launched uPVC Column Pipes, which extend the life of pipes. Column Pipes with a power lock (patent pending) will not only to raise the safety standards but improve the efficiency of Borewell installations. This Lock system, a by-product of the in-house R&D team, is designed to bear load making the pipes stress-free, torque resistant and perfect for handling high pressure water.

Conscious that using the correct glasses could prevent 90% of jobsite injuries, Milwaukee's expanded range (pictured) features anti-scratch and fog free styles, new lens colours and magnification features, complementing its 'cut resistant' gloves.

Arriving on the UK app scene, Spetz is billed as a ‘one-stop shop’ for anyone "panicked by household flooding or electricity failure," as it unites tradespeople with consumers.

Spetz founder and CEO Yossi Nevo said urgent needs come in all forms and it’s unlikely that any household has tried and trusted tradespeople to match every possibility. 

"The Spetz app rapidly connects them with a suitable ‘rescue service’ in as little as 30 seconds and that rapid reassurance is completely free - it’s the tradespeople who pay for these job leads. Those start at around £6 a time, but the tradesperson can then go on to make thousands from our automated system funnelling the best and most appropriate work their way.”

Spetz is now three years old operating in Israel, Australia and is now beginning a full UK rollout, after a ‘soft’ launch.
