New office launched in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

Growth in the e-commerce sector and increasing demand for industrial and retail warehousing in Saudi Arabia is driving a demand for automation solutions in the country. As a regional leader in warehousing automation solutions, Acme has opened an office in Riyadh to cater to the increasing demand in the Kingdom.

We believe that adopting industry 4.0 automation solutions for both factories as well as distribution centres is imperative to achieving Vision 2030, and we are here to support Saudi companies to achieve further growth through automation and robotics. ”

Navin Narayan added, “We have delivered automation solutions to our Saudi customers for nearly a decade from our facilities in Dubai. By investing in a new office in Riyadh, we will be closer to our Saudi customers and can promptly support their operations, and service any equipment, without downtime. By the end of 2023, we aim to have a team of over 30 professionals in Saudi. We expect the demand for our services to come from industrial production companies, automotive, FMCG and F&B manufacturers, e-commerce, as well as fulfillment centres.”
