Omar Associates (pvt.) Ltd
Omar Associates (pvt.) Ltd. is the parent company of the group and was formed in 1975 after the directors divested themselves from M/s Omar Sons, one of the oldest and most reputable construction companies in Pakistan. With their rich experience in the construction industry, the directors of OAL took upon themselves to further their interests in this industry. Over the course of the next four decades, through sheer hard work and dedication, the company grew leaps and bounds and was soon standing shoulder-to-shoulder with other the giants of the construction industry. The company primarily worked in the public, private and government sectors in the following fields:
- Preparation of technical and economical studies

- Construction contracting
- Inspection and evaluation of constructed projects
OAL’s staff of senior engineers and key personnel include a number a specialists with high technical qualifications and considerable practical experience in the planning, design and execution of all types of construction projects. Along with its sister concern, M/s Capriorn Associates, the company successfully undertook and completed various mega-projects for customers such as :

Additionally, the company also successfully completed various overseas projects under a joint venture with a Saudi company.
In the early 2000’s – with rapid changes in the country’s economical as well as political situation – the company saw the need to diversify its operations into other areas. Having worked in great detail with KW&SB, we recognized the immediate need for upgradation of metropolitan water filters, which use large amounts of silica sand-based filter media as its main component. At the time there were no manufacturers of filter media in Pakistan and hence Omar Associates (pvt.) Ltd became the first company in Pakistan to set up an industrial level silica sand crushing, sieving and grading plant. Since then we have successfully supplied our silica sand to many local companies and exported large volumes abroad as well. As we gradually became the market leader in the processing of filter sand, we have further branches out into production of specialty sands as well such as filtration sand, construction sand, golf course sand as well as sand for agrochemical uses.
