Amin Nasser, Aramco president and CEO

By any measure and in any ambition, Aramco is only as strong as our supply chain.


We need iktva partners who share our sense of responsibility and are equally ambitious about the future. 


Bader Al Harbi, administrator of iktva’s Support Division

The iktva program is a continuation of Saudi Aramco’s long-lasting effort to support localization.


Jerry Bateman, senior plant manager at Haliburton

From an iktva standpoint, we’ve been able to, with our facility to make an investment in the Kingdom and make an investment in the talent in-Kingdom with our 70% Saudization rate.


Saad Al Arfaj, managing director TECO Middle East

Iktva is marketing for our products. The participation and execution become more because of iktva initiatives and objectives. 


Hamed Bader, general manager of IKK Mateenbar

The iktva initiatives have supported the purchasing of locally sourced content, which is helping local manufacturers in increasing demand for their respective technologies. 


Jerry Bateman

That enables us to really bring maximum value to Saudi Arabia with our investment by using the local talent and local materials to produce products made in Saudi Arabia that we’ll use in Saudi Arabia but also that we’ll export outside the Kingdom.


Hamed Bader

Localization has allowed us at IKK Mateenbar to become closer to our clients in Saudi Arabia and in the GCC. This has reflected positively toward the well-being of all individuals working for the company, improved its morale, increased our efficiency, and made us more successful.


Saad Al Arfaj

I’m very proud to have manufactured motors in Saudi Arabia by Saudi resources.
