Arabian Power Electronics Company (APEC), a leading global power electronics manufacturer having worldwide operations and production facility in Saudi Arabia. APEC was established in 2011 as a flagship division of ERAM Group, one of the most diversified business conglomerate in Middle East.
The company has gained wide acceptance for the quality of products and services by serving more than 700 clients in the region and a total installed capacity over 12 MW of power back up systems. The company has an operations and maintenance team capable of reaching to the clients across Saudi Arabia.
The new facility, which has an overall area of 10000 sq. m with well-equipped production and office facilities, will deliver the most innovative technology, products and services as well as job opportunities to the young Saudi engineers and other job aspirants. This will accelerate the company’s vision of becoming the pioneers of Power Electronics in the Middle East. As Vision 2030 demands the development of a more stable energy sector with localization of the technology, APEC is close to achieving this through the process of transferring power electronics technology to the kingdom. The facility is completely designed and constructed for the future. Its position and proximity to the upcoming King Salman Energy Park, which is going to be the epicenter of global Industries, will help turn the spotlight on APEC- the indigenous manufacturer.
