BAE Systems establishes office in Kuwait

Kuwait – BAE Systems, one of the world's leading global defence, security and aerospace companies, today officially opened its office in Kuwait. Located on the grounds of the UK Embassy, the office was inaugurated by His Excellency Michael Davenport MBE, British Ambassador to the State of Kuwait.

The office will enable BAE Systems to deliver greater support to Kuwaiti customers across air, land, sea and cyber, supporting existing products as well as delivering new capabilities. The local presence will also serve to facilitate the ambition of job creation, and technology and skills transfer through the eventual formation of a local entity, enabling important contribution to the national agenda, New Kuwait Vision 2035.

Long term investment will be underpinned by Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) and education initiatives, critical to contributing to the foundations of New Kuwait Vision 2035.

Alan Garwood, Group Business Development Director, BAE Systems, said: “We are very pleased to officially establish our Kuwait office. We have a long history of creating enduring partnerships in the Gulf, and opening an office is another step to working towards that here in Kuwait. We are ready to partner for the future and want to deliver our class leading technologies and extensive training and support expertise to help develop a modern, sustainable defence capability.”

His Excellency Michael Davenport, UK Ambassador to Kuwait, said: “The United Kingdom has a world leading defence and security industry and we are delighted that BAE Systems has taken this step to establish a permanent presence here in Kuwait. We have a long standing history of working closely with Kuwait within the defence sector and are committed to build upon, what is already, a strong and enduring relationship.”

BAE Systems has a proven track record of capability delivery and technological skills transfer in the region in countries such as Saudi Arabia, Oman and UAE. Economic benefit and support for the national agendas have been central to the Company’s presence in those markets for more than 50 years alongside provision of leading platforms such as Hawk Advanced Training Jets and Typhoon swing role aircraft.

Additionally, training and support has played a major role in empowering nationals of those countries to enhance their defence and security capabilities, with the establishment of local partnerships further amplifying this.

In Kuwait, BAE Systems has already begun exploring investment in air sector training and support, maintenance, logistics and facilities, as well as cyber security capability. These efforts will be boosted by the opening of the local office as the Company looks to partner with Kuwait for the future.
