In 1975, the Saudi Arabian Trading and Construction Company (SATCO) started its operations covering sectors in construction, landscaping, catering, airports support services and systems control. A few short years after its inception, SATCO witnessed the construction boom of Saudi Arabia and took full advantage by forming joint ventures with foreign companies. The growth in Saudi Arabia ended in 1985 and many of the companies in the region, including SATCO’s foreign partners, exited. SATCO reorganized by acquiring the joint ventures’ assets and transferring their employees into divisions of SATCO. By effectively absorbing the foreign expertise and knowledge from its JVs, SATCO became an operating company.
Today, SATCO successfully continues its legacy as a private company that specializes in delivering first-rate products within the fields of airports support services, construction and industrial support services. Having more than four decades of experience in the industry and witnessing its rapid growth has allowed SATCO to obtain a deep-rooted market and consumer knowledge. This has positioned it to become an expert in its field, delivering world-class services all over the Middle East and Africa.
