Abdul Latif Jameel Machinery will now offer various types of HIGER Bus vehicles to customers in Saudi Arabia, including coaches, city buses, school buses, electric, hybrid and clean energy buses and high capacity articulated buses designed to operate in bus rapid transit system (BRT).
The partnership aims to expand and deepen HIGER’s presence in Saudi Arabia and meet rising public demand for safe, accessible transport — a key objective of Saudi Vision 2030.
The announcement was made at a special event at Hussein Jameel Hall in Jeddah, attended by officials from the Ministry of Hajj, Abdul Latif Jameel Machinery, HIGER Bus, and executives from bus operators in Makkah. Guests included Bassam Ghulman, deputy minister for transportation affairs, Ministry of Hajj and Umrah; Osama Samkari, general director assistant for transport, Naqaba; and Hamza Ghulman, dean of College of Engineering and Islamic Architecture, Umm Al-Qura University; and Marwan Sulaimani, director, Ministry of Hajj and Umrah.
Hassan Jameel, deputy president and vice chairman of Abdul Latif Jameel, said: “Abdul Latif Jameel is pleased to announce this partnership with HIGER Bus, the world’s third largest bus manufacturer. This is another demonstration of our position as an investment partner of choice for international businesses operating in Saudi Arabia and the region.
“Although this is the first time we have partnered with a bus company, we have achieved a high-quality level of after-sales services in automotive parts and machinery trade over the last 70 years. Combined with our best-in-class support, we will continue our commitment to improving and enhancing our services. The new partnership creates a strong and reliable contribution for Saudi Arabia as it looks to improve its public transportation, while supporting the increase of pilgrims visiting the country.”
Gary Jiang, general manager overseas of HIGER Bus, said: “Established in 1998, HIGER Bus has manufactured more than 250,000 vehicles over the last 20 years. It is the world’s third largest manufacturer of buses, with vehicles exported to 130 countries. HIGER’s partnership with Abdul Latif Jameel Machinery will further strengthen the brand and will provide customers peace of mind.”
