We work together with local partner companies to develop, engineer, train and support the innovations and workforce that sustain economic growth, increase defence sovereignty and safeguard commercial interests.
Several of these companies are our own Saudi ‘Kingdom Partner Companies’ that continue to contribute to the growth of the Saudi defence industry: BAE Systems Saudi Development & Training (SDT), International Systems Engineering (ISE), and Saudi Maintenance & Supply Chain Management Company (SMSCMC).
Through these partner companies we share our knowledge, skills and best practice and position them for success as the heart of the Saudi defence industry, as well as being equipped to succeed beyond the defence sector. These businesses are delivery partners for our defence contracts, however two of these also undertake a range of non-defence, non-Government to Government work.
As the Saudi defence industry continues to evolve, we are also working with Saudi Arabian Military Industries (SAMI) to explore how we can collaborate to deliver further In-Kingdom Industrial Participation, in line with Saudi’s National Transformation Plan and Vision 2030.
