Arabian Power Electronics Company (Apec), a leading global power electronics manufacturer fully owned by Eram Group, has announced plans to open offices in the GCC as part of its regional expansion plans.

Apec is a leading power electronics manufacturer based in Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia.

Unveiling the company plans at the Wetex 2016, Apec’s business unit head Jacob Thomas said: “Over the last three years, our business has grown and we now have customers across all the GCC countries. As part of our company’s strategic roadmap, we felt the need to have on-the-ground resources to support our growing customer base.”

“By appointing reputed partners in different countries, we could ensure that we not only offer the best quality products but also the best customer service and support,” he stated.

For the UAE, it has appointed Eram Trading, a subsidiary of Eram Group, as the agency to market Apec’s products in the UAE.

“In 2013, Apec opened a world-class manufacturing facility in Al Khobar, which was the first and only one of its kind in the GCC region to manufacture custom-made industrial power electronics equipment to cater the requirement of the region,” said Thomas.

The company showcased its extensive range of products at its Wetex stand, which was inaugurated by Dewa chief executive Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer.

Apec put on display its wide range of power electronics equipment including its uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems, battery chargers, inverters, frequency converters and solar power systems at its debut appearance at the exhibition.

“We are pleased to make our regional debut at Wetex 2016, which is a perfect platform for Apec to showcase our world-class products that meet or exceed the highest quality standards, raise our corporate profile and increase the visibility of our products to a niche focused audience,” he noted.

Mohamed Al Shallali, the chief technical advisor of Eram Group, said: “Our focus has been on building the company’s capability in technology-based products and services. We believe that the GCC region requires a lot of emphasis on technology innovation and R & D and through our subsidiaries like Apec, we are trying to contribute on our part.”

Apec is an ISO9001, ISO14000 and ISO18000 certified company, catering to customers ranging from airlines, infrastructure, utility power, oil and gas plants, to all industries that require industrial-grade power supply products.
