Alat, a Public Investment Fund company, is one of the latest assets for Saudi Arabia to create a world-class sustainable manufacturing hub in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. 

The first wave of investments included deals with Carrier Corporation and Tahakom, too.

"Alat, a PIF company, will deliver sustainable manufacturing to help these global companies reduce their emissions and move towards carbon-zero manufacturing," said the company in a statement. 

"We will redefine sustainable manufacturing", said Amit Midha, Global CEO of Alat. "Alat's mandate is focused on harnessing the Kingdom´s solar, wind and green hydrogen clean energy. We are passionately using technology to transform businesses, leveraging cutting-edge AI technology and fourth industrial revolution technologies for manufacturing." 

As part of the agreements, Saudi Arabia will also manufacture groundbreaking industrial robots.
