SNC-ICT and Draken Europe announce long-term partnership in Saudi Arabia

At this year’s inaugural World Defense Show in Riyadh, Draken Europe and Saudi Arabia-based logistics and supply chain specialist SNC ICT have announced their long-term in-Kingdom partnership.

SNC ICT’s provision of in-Kingdom logistics support, system network services and supply chain management, will be central to Draken’s plans for expansion in the Middle East.

Paul Armstrong ACIS, Draken Europe CEO explained the central benefits of the relationship: “We have been working with the team at SNC ICT for several years, and the opportunity to announce formally our partnership here at the World Defense Show in Riyadh is great news for both of our teams. The strength of the working relationship with our colleagues at SNC ICT reflects the significance Draken Europe places on the Middle East-market in general and the importance of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s defense sector in particular. Having SNC ICT as in-Kingdom partner will be of enormous benefit to us as we look to broaden our services in Saudi Arabia.­”

General Mahmoud Hassainan, chairman of SNC ICT, commented: “Draken Europe is a company that places great value on service, innovation and delivery, all values that we share at SNC ICT. As a company they are notably enthusiastic about the development of indigenous capabilities in-Kingdom, clearly in alignment with Vision 2030. We look forward to supporting them in this endeavour – and in the expansion of their services in Saudi Arabia – in the years ahead.”

Together Draken Europe and SNC ICT will adopt a working approach that is aligned to the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 – notably with aspirations to support in-Kingdom academic research into electronic warfare flying training and operational readiness training – the key services that Draken Europe has provided globally for more than 30 years to militaries and government agencies.
