This Carrier deal comes as part of Alat's massive plan for the kingdom under which it will be investing $100 billion to boost the country's technology capabilities by 2030, benefiting from the rapid development of this sector in Saudi Arabia. 
In addition to the US group, Alat has sealed global partnerships with leading technology companies including Softbank Group, Dahua Technology, a professional manufacturer in the security and safety field, and Saudi Technology and Security Comprehensive Control Company (Tahakom).
