NEW DELHI -- Saudi Aramco has opened a new branch of Aramco Overseas Co. in India. The inauguration of the new office in Gurgaon, the industrial district of New Delhi, was attended by H.E.Faisal Hassan Al-Trad, Saudia Arabia’s ambassador to India.

The operation will focus on the companies involved in manufacturing and contracting materials for Saudi Aramco, creating opportunities for Indian businesses. According to AOC managing director Ahmed M. Alzayyat, those opportunities will depend on the ability of Indian businesses to comply with the company’s quality requirements and to offer competitive pricing.

“Saudi Aramco maintains the highest standards in construction,” Alzayyat says. “This office will allow us to identify and assess manufacturer capability and performance, concentrating on material supply for the company’s strategic commodities and detailing the steps that potential partners need to take to qualify as a supplier.”
