Thales integrates new centre

Thales is creating a new integration centre in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region to help boost its presence in the area.

The centre, which will be based in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, will mainly address the civil sector and will cover the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Oman, Kuwait and Qatar.

‘In the GCC area, Thales has created a network of local integration centres and joint ventures that allow us to work closely with our clients in each country,’ said Michel Viallaneix, Thales Security Solutions and Services country director – Gulf Region. ‘With the creation of our new integration centre the company’s regional presence will be reinforced specifically in the market segments served by the division Security Solutions and Services.

‘Our offer consists primarily of security and safety solutions for ground transportation, as well as security and communication systems for mission critical infrastructure, including that related to citizen ID projects.’
