DWAN Marketing Company (AMC) has been a prime source of electrical materials and test instruments to the Saudi market since 1978.
Today, AMC has grown to become a leading electrical distributor providing electrical materials and complete technical solutions to most projects in the Saudi market. With its three warehouses located in Riyadh, Jeddah and Khobar, AMC carries a substantial inventory of electrical, industrial and instrumentation products.
"Our professional services are extended to clients, contractors and consultants to keep them updated on all new developments and high-tech products. A team of qualified electrical engineers is on hand to help clients identify their electrical requirements and provide solutions," says Khaled Bin Adwan, AMC CEO.
AMC was awarded the ISO 9002 certification in early 1999. Subsequently, in 2018 it was upgraded to the new 9001:2015 standard, thus being the first company in its category to achieve this certification in Saudi Arabia.
Some of the new innovations AMC has introduced include smart grids controls, online monitoring and digitisation.
To help clients get the best, AMC offers them technical assistance in addition to designing products that are specific to the region’s industry.
Some of the latest projects AMC has undertaken include Maaden Ammonia III for Maaden, where it supplied instrument valves from Hy-Lok; Waad Al-Shamal for Sabic (lighting fixtures and poles from Omega, Bartec and NLC); Rabigh SS 380/132 kV BSP for the Saline Water Conversion Corporation (TFFR and DSM from Qualitrol); Wasit GOSP for Saudi Aramco (electrical cables and junction boxes from Oman Cable and Appleton); JIGCC Utilities – Common Area, Package 5 for Aramco (grounding and lightning materials from Furse, RCG and Crouse Hinds); and West Qurna I for Exxon (grounding materials from Furse), among numerous other projects.
A benchmark project was Aramco’s Juaymah Mechanical Shop where AMC supplied the entire Motor Test System up to 13.8 kV during 2020 making it the first of its size to be supplied to Aramco.
AMC aims to be "recognised and respected as one of the leading regional electrical and industrial supplies companies and strives to satisfy its customers’ needs of electrical and industrial supplies through commitment to innovation, service and value in a mutually profitable relationship. We will achieve this within a business culture of ethical integrity and respect for our Customers, Employees and long-term relationship with our Suppliers", AMC says in its mission statement.
