Advanced Electronics Company (AEC) was one of the companies created under the auspices of the Saudi Economic Offset Program, which originally started in the mid-1980s.
"An integral part of AEC strategy was to develop Saudis and create local capabilities through Saudi nationals—and that was clearly our major differentiating factor," says Dr. Ghassan Al-Shibl, President and CEO of AEC.
"We have put in place quality assurance systems to make sure that whatever we do in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is no less good than what is done in the West, from where the technologies are coming from. Quality is a very important conditionality for AEC," he continues.
AEC focused on critical technologies and dedicated itself to defence electronics, later on spreading into other areas such as ICT and industry (power and energy).
