Saudi Arabian Military Industries (SAMI) is forming a joint venture with Figeac Aero to build a factory in the Kingdom to make aerostructure components. The joint venture’s revenue will reach $200 million by 2030 and Saudi Arabia will own 60% with the French company holding 40%.
SAMI explained that over 10 years, the SAMi-Fegiac joint venture would carry out a string of major investments, the majority of which will be financed by local financial institutions, including the launch of a new production facility in Jeddah. Saudi Arabian Industrial Investments Company (Dussur) is also a partner in the project.
