Saudi Aramco signed a seven-year strategic partnership agreement with ITT Corporation to provide products and services to Aramco's oil, gas and petrochemical projects in Saudi Arabia and internationally.

Under this agreement, ITT and its partner Aswad Group will provide products — including Goulds pumps, BIW well-head connectors, ProSmart predictive condition monitoring systems and PumpSmart advanced pump controls — and services through ITT Saudi Co. Ltd, ITT's local manufacturing and service operation, located in Dammam Second Industrial City.

ITT Saudi will provide professional expertise to support start up and commissioning of all types of pumping systems. ITT Saudi will also provide expert aftermarket services to support Saudi Aramco's operations through ITT PRO Services and Plant Performance Services programs.

The agreement also covers several strategic initiatives, including a program whereby ITT will support the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's Saudization efforts to enhance local industrial manufacturing capability, develop local supply chains and improve overall plant performance for Saudi customers.

"This agreement and our partnership with Saudi Aramco is a significant milestone in our oil and gas sector growth plans," said Robert Pagano Jr., president of ITT's Industrial Process business.

ITT Saudi has a manufacturing and Pro Service center in Dammam. The facility is equipped with the latest technology, including a fully automated test stand for horizontal and vertical pumps widely used in the oil and gas industry. The factory is approved as both a pump manufacturer and service operation by all major Industrial Process customers in Saudi Arabia, and specifically by Saudi Aramco's inspection and Materials Supply and Services Division (MSSD).

"ITT's continued investment in this factory represents a firm and long-term commitment to support customers in Saudi Arabia and the Saudization program, with the goal of employing the highest percentage possible of Saudi national employees," said Pagano.

ITT Saudi will also feature a complete and modern training center on its premises, including hands-on labs and classrooms, with the objective to raise the technical and mechanical expertise, both internally and externally.
