RAK Ceramics is set to invest US$200 million in its Ras Al Khaimah plant to become the world's largest single ceramic products plant. The company will boost its combined annual capacity to 100 million square metres of ceramic tiles. It also has plans to set up new plants, as well as increase capacity of the existing plants within the next few months. By September 2005, it will account for 5% of the global production of ceramic tiles. Capacity of the Ras Al Khaimah plant, which now produces 120,000 square metres of ceramic tiles per day and 7,000 pieces of sanitary-ware, will be increased to 200,000 square metres of ceramic tiles and 9,000 pieces of sanitary-ware by September 2005.
