Schneider Electric launches new production line for ‘Made in Saudi’ products. The new facility aims to support Saudi Arabia's Vision 2030 objectives to position the country as a prominent global manufacturing and supply chain hub.


Advanced capabilities

The new facility aims to support Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 objectives to position the country as a prominent global manufacturing hub by expanding its manufacturing capabilities to facilitate the export of energy management solutions to regional and global markets.


Equipped with the latest automation technology and robotics, the new production line is poised to create job opportunities for the Saudi workforce, prioritising youth and women in technical roles. According to Mohamed Shaheen, Schneider Electric’s Cluster President of Saudi Arabia and Yemen, up to 10% of the assembly line’s roles will be allocated to women, promoting gender diversity and empowerment.


Shaheen further highlighted that the intelligent equipment produced on the new assembly line will enable companies to enhance their energy efficiency and advance their decarbonization and sustainability efforts, including Schneider Electric’s Altivar Process Modular (APM) Drives, which will bear the “Made in KSA” label, solidifying Saudi Arabia’s position as a prominent exporter of intelligent digital products.


Supporting the kingdom’s transformation

As part of Schneider Electric’s commitment to diversity and digital transformation, the new facility aligns with the National Industrial Development and Logistics Program (NIDLP) objectives to transform Saudi Arabia into a global logistics hub.


Moreover, the advanced production line will also contribute to the kingdom’s National Industrial Strategy, which aims to triple industrial output and increase the value of industrial exports to around $149 billion by 2030.

Schneider Electric’s factory established in 1987 in Riyadh, features a range of Industry 4.0 applications including machine learning, software-guided interlocks, AI-based inspections, robotics for flexible automation, and robotic process automation.
