Among the collaborators are industry giants Softbank Group, Carrier Corporation, Dahua Technology, and Tahakom. These partnerships are set to support various facets of the tech industry, from manufacturing and robotics to emissions reduction and smart city solutions.

Alat's collaboration with Softbank Group heralds the establishment of an advanced industrial automation venture, poised to spearhead the production of industrial robots within Saudi Arabia. With an initial investment of $150 million, this venture aims to create a manufacturing hub capable of meeting both domestic and global demand, with operations slated to commence by December 2024.

Meanwhile, the partnership between Alat and Carrier Corporation is set to drive innovation in building emissions reduction and energy efficiency. By establishing a manufacturing and R&D facility, this collaboration aims to generate over 5,000 local job opportunities while delivering HVAC solutions tailored to the kingdom's needs.

Also, Alat joined forces with Dahua Technology to launch a visionary business focused on vision-centric products. With an investment of $200 million, this venture is set to offer innovative solutions that harness the power of advanced imaging technologies.

Additionally, Alat's partnership with Tahakom will drive progress in smart mobility and intelligent city solutions.
