Making Our Planet More Productive


Making our planet more productive means creating technology, products and services that help us sustain and protect our planet.


It's been over fifty years since ROC began making ice to satisfy the growing demand for advanced refrigeration, oxygenation and storage facilities in Kuwait. From these humble beginnings, we have expanded into a global business group in the Middle East, pioneering advancements within the industrial gas sector across the world.

A major component of our phenomenal success is our deep understanding of the power of nature and science – and the opportunities that a combination of these two forces present. Based on this approach, our innovative solutions are hailed as trademarks of reliability and engineering excellence; facilitating new areas of advancement and progress in the Gulf Region and beyond.

Following a long period of healthy growth and natural progression it is the right time for ROC Group to strengthen our position within global markets and aim for higher pinnacles of business excellence.  With this in mind the ROC group of companies in the Middle East has rebranded into AIRTEC, following its merger with Praxair, Inc., the largest industrial gases company in North and South America, and one of the largest worldwide. AIRTEC now represents the combined know how and reputation of the group and Praxair, and is aimed at further strengthening its market leading position as the largest total gas solutions provider in the region.

As we enter into the next development phase of our company we will continue to make long term investments in world class technology and adhere to the highest ethical standards towards our employees, our clients and our industry. We are proud to be playing a pivotal role in shaping the future of the industrial gas sector and we would like to thank our partners, associates and customers for their ongoing support during this time.
