Al Salem Johnson Controls was established in Saudi Arabia in 1991 as a joint venture between the Al Salem group of companies and Johnson Controls International.
The deal for the KAIA project was agreed during the Airports Security International Conference and Exhibition in Jeddah in May. A contract signing with ICAD (Innovative Contractors for Advanced Dimensions) was held during the event.
Under the deal for Phase 1 of the project, Al Salem Johnson Controls will provide integrated systems, including access control and video surveillance solutions, for the busiest airport in Saudi Arabia as part of its three-phase development scheduled for completion in 2014.
Al Salem Johnson Controls will act as the sub-contractor responsible for the design, installation, testing, integration and hand-over of the security systems, while it will also hold the maintenance contract.
Eng. Basil Abdulaziz, vice president and general manager of KSA and Lebanon offices for Al Salem Johnson Controls said: “The airport expansion will one day serve more than 30 million passengers a year and our systems will help to keep them safe.”
Mohammed Saleh Bin Laden, vice president of ICAD, said: “KAIA is destined to become one of the most modern airports in the world and when the development project is completed it will be enhanced with state-of-the-art facilities including the most technologically advanced security systems.”
