The Launch of Dartec

The Launch of Dartec

Our Story
Established in 2012, DarTec is specialized in Localizing the Manufacturing of mechanical spare parts & Inspection by developing the required engineering package (2D Engineering Drawings, 3D CAD Models, and material analysis) to manage the manufacturing processes required to produce the parts.
Our Story
It all began back in 2011, on a sunny day in McClain, Virginia, where two guys who shared a common vision sat at a Starbucks to discuss the future of what would become DarTec! The vision was to develop a company that would revolutionize the spare part industry in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia by transitioning the country from a consumer-based economy to a knowledge-based one. They scribbled their ideas on the backside of a napkin and a couple of months later, DarTec was established. Dr. Hashim AlZain and his partner Eng. Ayman AlNouri knew that what they were creating would have tremendous impact in multiple industries. What they didn’t know back then was how difficult it would be to create a new industry sector that dovetails into existing ones!
