Local cooperation

Thales strategy in Saudi Arabia is in full line with Vision 2030. Since the early beginning Thales set up and continuously develops its local footprint through a diversified approach, developing industrial partnerships throughout the country in all the group domains. Thales is supporting Vision 2030, the Country roadmap to develop the Kingdom in the next 15 coming years :
  • Over the past few decades, Thales has established solid foundations for effective cooperation with local industries, thus increasing Thales’ presence in Saudi Arabia. This has been achieved through the transfer of technology, offering technical expertise and assistance to companies like Advanced Electronics Company (AEC), Al Salam, and others.
  • As a pioneer in localisation in the country, Thales’ strategy is to accelerate the saudisation through transfers of technology and local production. 
Thales has also developed invaluable cooperative agreements with public organisations & institutions and universities & academies:
  • Thales has strengthened its cooperation with King Abdulaziz City for Sciences & Technology (KACST) and Taqnia in order to develop and set joint programmes related to the Group’s activities in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
  • In 2010, Thales signed a collaboration agreement with King Saudi University (King Abdullah Institute for Nanotechnology) for joint research programmes.
  • The Group is a co-founder and board member of Al Faysal University. Today, Thales is developing cooperation agreements with Princess Nora University, Al Yamamah University, KFUPM University and other technical colleges.
