Segula Technologies, a global engineering group, is launching its Middle East business through establishing two offices to support its customers in the energy, aerospace, defence, rail, manufacturing, naval, and automotive sectors, covering the full scope of competencies from design to manufacturing engineering.
Segula’s new offices are located in Masdar City in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, and in Cairo, Egypt.
The Middle East is a strategic market, rapidly growing and developing industry 4.0 solutions and energy transition process.
This region has robust engineering capabilities, with ambitions to build local capabilities and expertise, to explore new horizons in hydrogen, automotive manufacturing, software solutions, high-speed rail networks, and nuclear energy.
It is certainly a growing and attractive market, and it represents a great opportunity for Segula Technologies to apply its knowledge and expertise, supporting customers to develop their digital transformation and energy transition strategies.
In this region, Segula Technologies is already working with major international and local industrial players.
Omar Khattab, managing director Middle East at Segula Technologies, says: “Masdar City in Abu Dhabi is at the core of industry 4.0 and energy transition in the United Arab Emirates, while Cairo is the beating heart of the Egyptian industry and business landscape, where our strategic partners are set up.
“Our ambition is to emerge as the partner of choice, and as a major contributor to the industrialisation, energy transition, and digital transformation of the Middle East, through partnering with our customers.”
With the opening of these new offices, Segula aims to pursue these main goals:
- To support customers and partners in achieving their digitalization and industry 4.0 goals
- To grow its expertise in renewable and nuclear energies, while fortifying its conventional energy solutions offering
- To build a talent hub of qualified engineers and skilled technical resources
- To achieve growth sustainability to the company and its customers
Segula plans to recruit 200 new employees, including skilled engineers, skilled software developers, energy experts, and rail technical services specialists by end of 2025 and to set up operations in other cities at a later stage.
