Delcam announces first Sales Partner in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia - Terraze Engineering

Delcam has strengthened its focus on the Middle East market by announcing its first Sales Partner in Saudi Arabia, Terraze Engineering. The company will work alongside Delcam’s direct office in the Middle East, which was established in the UAE in 2004.

Announcing the appointment, Delcam India & Middle East Managing Director, Vineet Seth, said, "I have been visiting Saudi Arabia for the last six years, since starting the Delcam Middle East Office, and have found that the non-oil businesses are growing at a steady rate. In tune with KSA’s ambition to diversify its strong economy into that of a modern industrial state, Delcam is keen to promote the use of the latest CAD/CAM technology in this market and we need an established partner like Terraze Engineering to do this.”

With the country’s seventh plan focusing more on economic diversification and a greater role for the private sector in the economy, Saudi Arabia is set to grow the private sector’s contribution to GDP by over 5 percent. "Delcam's CAD/CAM/CAI technology finds applications in many areas that are currently the focus sectors in KSA, in particular, the automotive and plastics industries, and also in the proposed aerospace manufacturing and maintenance businesses,” claimed Mr. Seth. "We want to leverage the strengths of our Advanced Manufacturing Solutions to cater to these companies’ requirements for design, machining and inspection of complex shapes – all from a single source of supply and supported locally in Saudi Arabia.”

"The healthcare industry is also developing rapidly and we see many areas where Delcam’s software can help practitioners to provide a faster and better service to their patients,” added Mr. Seth. "In addition, we will support the development of the local technical talent pool by promoting our solutions in academia as well.”

"I am pleased to see the appointment of our first partner in Saudi Arabia,” stated Delcam Chief Executive, Clive Martell. "It represents another important step in our strategy to offer local support to all of our customers, wherever they are located.”

Khaled Hassan Saber Alobaidan, President of Terraze Engineering commented, "We have been into general engineering for some time now and felt the need to partner with a global CAD/CAM company that could demonstrate stability, adaptability and strength – both in their products and in their support for customers and resellers. In Delcam, we see this all and much more, which is why we chose to partner with them and jointly offer the next generation CAD/CAM/CAI systems to the local markets in Saudi Arabia, and also to the surrounding Middle Eastern countries.”
