Redlands, California, USA, 30 October 2006 – Stemming from ESRI’s commitment to meet the needs and demands of the geographic information system (GIS) community in the Middle East and North Africa, ESRI has announced the establishment of ESRI Northeast Africa (ESRI NEA).
The newly formed company will allow the expansion of ESRI’s software distribution into Libya, Chad, and Sudan and will provide the support and services required by ESRI’s customer base in the region.
According to Jack Dangermond, ESRI president, “ESRI Northeast Africa will be able to better serve our existing customer base with confident corporate support.”
“The establishment of ESRI NEA is a milestone for our GIS business,” declared Ahmed Abdel Aal, Managing Director of ESRI NEA. “It allows us to significantly leverage our presence throughout the region.”
ESRI NEA is a free zone company located in Egypt with business that is spread across the region. ESRI NEA was established due to the success that was demonstrated by Quality Standards Information Technology (QSIT), ESRI’s distributor in Egypt and the surrounding region since 1994.
