International Golden Group (IGG), the Abu Dhabi-based supplier of high-end defence and security systems, will host more than 80 international defence companies from the USA, Europe and Asia at its Stand 04-C30.

The IGG stand will feature leading companies in the defence and security sector, which will promote high-technology systems and equipment for soldiers and the armed forces of the UAE and the GCC region.

IGG, the largest supplier to the UAE Armed Forces, plans to become the manufacturer of cutting-edge technology and defence systems.

HE Mohammed Hilal Al Kaabi, chairman of IGG, said: “In addition to our commercial products, IGG has identified the scope to grow in the field of military and industrial products and we are preparing to announce a host of new products catering to these fields at IDEX 2017.

“We have partnered with distinguished international companies to offer state-of-the-art products and the latest technology for our armed forces. Our strong relationships with key players make IGG the most trusted Emirati defence company in the region.”

Al Kaabi revealed that IGG Advanced Industries, positioned to implement a sound growth strategy with its future business concepts that include state-of-the-art technologies, will soon be opened at Tawazun Industrial Park. Its premises will include heavy and light industries, a military clothing factory, equipped training facilities, simulations, maintenance repair and overhaul (MRO), an imaging devices factory, a recreational centre and an entertainment centre for employees.

The industrial city complies with the offset programme that promotes the transfer of technology and know-how to the UAE. The purpose of these strategies is to improve IGG’s industrial capabilities in system engineering, development, integration and delivery of local after-sales services to the UAE and the GCC region.

IDEX 2017 will be the venue for announcements that confirm valuable deals between IGG and other organisations within the same field.

“We look forward to consolidating our position as the top organisation to offer the best experiences, updated knowledge and defence and security training for citizens of the UAE,” Al Kaabi concluded.
