Consulting Services

AGBI provides Consulting Services for USA Manufacturers and Services Providers that wish to conduct business in the Middle East.

In an era of unprecedented growth in global business activities, few regions of the world offer more untapped opportunity for US businesses and US products than the Middle East.

U.S. corporate giants like Chevron, Exxon, GE, 3M, IBM, Microsoft, Pepsi, Coca-Cola, General Motors, Caterpillar etc.., to name a few, are already actively engaged in the Middle East.

Major U.S. companies have internal expertise and the finances to gain access to market opportunities in and establish business linkages with local Middle Eastern firms.

On the other hand, medium to small US firms do not have the internal expertise to make them successful competitors in the Middle East market place. As such, they are seriously disadvantaged in accessing global business opportunities and establishing linkages with Middle Eastern firms.

This is where AGBI’s Consulting Services come in.

Our Head Office located in Syracuse, New York and our Middle East Regional Office in Amman, Jordan coordinate our clients’ activities in:

Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Yemen.

AGBI has five main Consulting Services activities related to Business Development in the Middle East. These are:

  1. Finding the right partners locally
  2. Establishing Distribution/Reps Networks
  3. Advising on and Assisting with Licensing Agreements formulation and negotiations
  4. IT Consulting services (SAP and others) as well as Avertra software products for the Utilities (water, wastewater, gas, electric) and Logistics companies
  5. Due to our specialization in Gates/Penstocks used for Flow Control, our company provides these related Consulting Services:
    a) Recommendations on type of gates to use for a certain application
