About Us

Founder & MD's Message

We as a company and team take pride in the fact that we have come from very humble beginnings- building this organization brick by brick. None of this could have been possible without the dedication, skill and integrity of our team, and we owe all our success to the 5,000+ ladies and gentlemen who have paved the way for where AZEP stands today over our 30+ years of history. I also take this opportunity to thank all our clients and associates without whose trust and support we would not be where we are today. 

Today we have the distinguished recognition in the Sultanate of Oman to be one of the companies that have completed and handed over almost 100 successful projects of various scales and sectors. Another feather in our cap is that AZEP has constructed the highest number (over 50) bridges in Oman, more than any of our competitors.

At AZEP, there are continuous efforts to ensure that our employees are involved with a company that delivers excellence, is trusted, and provides room for professional growthIt is vital to remember that success requires the highest standards of corporate ethics towards everyone we work with, the communities we serve, and the environment we impact. We aim to build a culture that ensures the values which remain the foundation of our company remain intact and are only strengthened over time. This is the path we have chosen to tread for the foreseeable future towards sustainable, profitable growth whilst creating long-term value for all stakeholders.  

 

The past few years in business globally have been more challenging than ever, and the onset of the pandemic COVID-19 has only made matters more abstruseWe at AZEP have welcomed and embraced this challenge as an opportunity. It has enabled us to re-evaluate and modify our business in a manner that we are able to offer our clients more superior and safe solutions, at even more competitive and affordable costs. 

We strongly believe that any company that wishes to sustain in a society must do so responsibly and has a duty to “give back” to it. The major operations of AZEP remain in the Sultanate of Oman and thus it has our highest regard and respect. AZEP aims to be in full agreement with the Oman 2040 vision which places a strong emphasis on the In-country Value and Omanisation policies of the Sultanate. We don’t only treat these as requirements of the law but take extra steps and measure to ensure that we invest in training, developing, promoting and harnessing local talent and SMEs. 

We look at the years ahead of us with renewed energy, enthusiasm and resolve while staying committed to our core values of Excellence, Quality, Speed, Safety and Integrity. We are certain that by keeping at this path we will reach new heights and constantly keep improving the services we so proudly provide.

Our Core Values

Quality and Speed

Springing from humble roots, the company’s biggest strength remains timely delivery with the best possible quality standards. At all levels of our organization, there is close monitoring on the daily (and sometimes even hourly) progress of works at the site level. The targets are set stringently and followed meticulously.

But with Safety

We maintain an ever-increasing emphasis on workplace safety. Our company promotes a culture of caring- for those working with us, around us, for our environment and for our society. We try to be at the forefront of implementing and even developing safety best practices.

Sustainability

We leave a positive legacy for the people we work with, the communities we work in, and the world in which we operate. We want to enhance our impact on the environment, working with our supply chain partners, customers and communities to ensure our choices are sustainable.

Cost-competitive innovation

Our clients demand cost-competitive solutions. Every day we strive to establish methods and procedures aimed at increasing our productivity at site and in the office. We continually invest in new tools that allow us to drive cost and schedule certainty and to optimize efficiency. Our connections with the most cost-efficient suppliers globally enable our clients to enjoy the most cost-effective solution without having to compromise on quality.

Integrity

We remain committed to achieving corporate governance standards and ethical business practices that meet the highest possible levels of integrity and compliance, no matter what the cost. Compromising on ethics is most definitely a no-go.
