MSA became an approved vendor at Saudi Aramco by its ability to provide unmatched technical expertise and by offering the most advanced and innovative SCBA solutions for the customer’s challenging needs. This major milestone for MSA was the outcome of technical meetings and field trials dating back to 2007. As a result, in early 2014, Saudi Aramco invited MSA to participate in three separate SCBA bids. All the three bids (Fire SCBA, Industrial Airline and Industrial SCBA) were finally awarded to MSA.
The details are as follows:
- Spring 2014: MSA delivers Industrial Airline Respirators PremAire for Saudi Aramco Offshore Drilling

MSA is proud to be chosen to provide SCBA products for operations in refineries, plants and terminals of Saudi Aramco. The relationship that MSA has established with Saudi Aramco opens up a new opportunity for us and maintains the enthusiasm of MSA associates to continue our mission of protecting and saving lives of many workers around the globe.
