03 Feb Al-Saher International honoured at SMARt Awards
The first ever SecurMiddleEast Awards for Excellence in Technology (SMARt Awards) took place at this year’s Intersec expo. Organised by Intelligent Security Systems ISS, in partnership with Security Middle East magazine, Intel and Dell/BCD, we were delighted to be honouring four outstanding firms for their exceptional contribution to driving innovation and best practice in the industry.
One of the companies receiving a SMARt Award was Al-Saher International. Established in 2006 in Abu Dhabi as a premium telecommunications and security company, it specialises as a system integrator and marketing representative for the Middle East.
The company has provided technology and innovation to some of the most prestigious organisations in the region, including governments, police, military, industrial and within the private sector.
Aluisio Figueiredo, Chief Executive of ISS was on hand to present Al-Saher International’s CEO Mohamed Seddiq Almutawa with his award.
When presenting the award, Figueiredo, said: “I am very pleased to say that I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Mohamed over the past ten years and watched both the incredible growth of his company and his own personal drive. He never stops to amaze me, as every time we sit down I feel that I’m embarking on a journey to the future. His drive and passion are unmatched.”
Al-Saher is focused on sourcing goods and services within the UAE, following the strategy of local value added and boosting the employment of UAE Emirati workforce in the private sector. While the company has been involved with a wealth of clients, the judges for the SMARt Awards singled out projects with the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company ADNOC, Dubai Consulate and Gasco for mention.
