L-3 WESCAM announced today that it will sign a Service Center Agreement with King Abdullah II Design and Development Bureau (KADDB) to open a WESCAM Authorized Service Center (WASC) in Jordan. KADDB is an independent government entity in Jordan that designs and develops defence products and security solutions in the Middle East.
The contract is scheduled to be signed at the SOFEX trade show in Amman, Jordan, on Wednesday May 9, 2012. The event will take place in the KADDB Investment Group booth, within the KIG Hall, at 11:00 a.m.
The new WASC is scheduled to be operational by December 2012 and will provide customers in Jordan and throughout the Middle East region with maintenance and repair capabilities. To offer even more support services, a planned expansion of the facility is expected over the next two to three years, with additional investments in tooling and testing equipment.
“We are proud to welcome KADDB to our global network of service centers,” said Paul Jennison, vice president of sales and business development for L-3 WESCAM. “The new WASC will be an important resource in delivering convenient in-service support to our Middle Eastern customers.”
“KADDB aims at becoming the preferred service supplier in the region, and we believe that this can be achieved by teaming with a reputable company, such as L-3 WESCAM,” said Shadi Al-Majali, chairman and chief executive officer of KADDB.
“KADDB is pleased to join L-3 WESCAM’s ever-growing global network of service centers.” The addition of KADDB as an authorized service center brings L-3 WESCAM’s global facility count to 12, with other strategically located facilities in the U.K., Australia, Japan, Italy, Spain, Germany, Colombia, Jordan, the United States and Canada. These centers are in close proximity to L-3 WESCAM’s customers, allowing the company to offer local service and expertise, while providing customers with improved turnaround times.
