About Saab in UAE
Saab has a long history in the UAE and is now on a growth journey in the country. We are developing an indigenous industrial capability, which will support our common vision of a technology company creating solutions with a global market in mind. A world-class emirate defence and security industry is what we are aiming for. Local employees from various countries including Emirati nationals staff the company. Our plan is to grow this company as fast as possible, develop advanced technologies, establish a local supply chain, build engineering skills and create high-tech jobs, increase the number of Emirati nationals, and in collaboration with local and academia, partners invest in research and development.
Proud history, great future
Saab’s business operations in the UAE dates back to the 1980s. Products and systems that Saab has delivered to the region include naval command and control systems, naval radar systems, self-protection systems, signature management systems, airborne surveillance systems, field hospitals, and training, security, management and communication systems. Furthermore, products and solutions that increase security and efficiency at airports, port management systems and a wide range of solutions for the energy, oil and gas industry.
In 2018, we took an important step forward on our growth journey in the UAE with the creation of Saab Ltd, a wholly Saab owned company based in Abu Dhabi.
Together with Gulf Air Space Co LLC (GACO) Saab has a joint venture in the country; Saab Middle East LLC, where GACO owns 51 percent and Saab the remaining 49 percent.
