The Building Process
In October, 2001 Technology Experts started as a small Establishment with a number of employees not exceeding two (2). The clearness of aims and mission enabled its Administration to exert more effort and time, which eventually led to a fast expansion and development of the company in more specialized activities. Where new divisions and departments have been established to meet the size of development in the company, the Radiation Protection Department was founded, followed by other departments which include Safe Transport of Radioactive Material, Radiation Analysis, Radiation Instrument Supply, and a Training Center. The development and expansion of the Company continued to its present size with many specialized divisions and departments as seen in figure (1).
For Technology Experts to achieve its mission and aims in a perfect way it has established a solid research infrastructure and work environment of advanced preparations which includes many specialized laboratories, well logging and geophysical surveying instruments, and radiation devices. In addition to this the company applied many advanced technologies in its work and opened new branches in the Eastern Province and in Cairo, Egypt. That tiny establishment has now transformed into a renowned full-scale company comprising many distinguished specialists and experts.
Fields of Expertise:
Settlement of Technology is considered to be one of the most important strategic issues of high value in a state having a hard desert environment and suffering from scarcity of water like the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. For this reason Technology Experts exerted more effort through its motto and mission to settle the Technology in a way that satisfies the Kingdoms needs, especially those concerned with water and environment in different aspects and activities of trading, contracting, studies and scientific services.
The Trading, Sales and Marketing Department is responsible for instruments and equipment supplied to different Governmental and private sector institutions. Such activities were accompanied by introducing new advance technologies to the Saudi market with keen trials to settle and operate these technologies in the society and offering training and maintenance in cooperation with other divisions and departments in the company. Besides this, other departments in the company took the responsibility of activities in the field of contracting where many projects have been executed; important of these are the projects for operation and maintenance of water treatment plants where the company showed a proven successful record in execution and promotion of the works in this field. On the other hand studies and consultations in the fields of water, environment, and radiation represent one of the main activities. The effort in these fields was clearly noticed due to the presence of a solid infrastructure of labs and other necessary scientific preparations in the company. In this regard the company executed a number of studies and research projects for different Governmental and private sector Institutions like Ministry of Defense and Aviation, Ministry of Water and Electricity, Saudi Aramco, and many other bodies, where such studies have contributed greatly in providing solutions to many complicated problems which have been recorded as outstanding discoveries. The scientific services such as Lab analysis, Radiation surveying, Training Courses, Well Logging and other vital and specialized services represent an important tributary of the work in Technology Experts, where these services are in a continuous process of expansion, development, and perfection.
Saudization represents one of the main policies in the company, where it exerts more efforts to achieve it. The percentage of Saudis working in the company reaches 32 % and covering all departments and fields of specialization. In this regard TEC conducts many specialized training courses locally and overseas to promote and qualify the Saudi employees. For this purpose the company signed an agreement with Human Resources Development Fund to encourage and promote the National qualified persons both quantitatively and qualitatively and give more possible chances to accommodate and employ the ambitious Saudi personnel.
