Eyeing expansion in big EU market, the firm is now working to upgrade its production technology by equipping its Sohar-based factory with state-of-the-art machines. 
Ali al Amouri, Manager Sales at NSF said till now the factory operated with old machinery, but now they are upgrading the same as they are eyeing penetration in international markets like the EU, Africa and Gulf markets, with high quality products.
He said they have already bought two latest weaving machines from Belgium and plan to procure some more machines in near future.
