ATWEC Technologies, Inc., a US-based technology company specializing in child safety, today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary SafeBus Technologies, Inc. has received a Letter of Intent (“LOI”) to sell its proprietary vehicle systems through distributors located in the Middle East, including markets throughout Saudi Arabia, UAE and Dubai (the “Distributor”).
The Company will initially commit to installing systems on up to 1,000 vehicles in greater Riyadh, beginning in late 2021. The price of the systems ranges from basic $250 up to $2500 per vehicle, for a high-functioning and powerful security system.
The Distributor, SafeBus International, LLC (NJ), has existing sales channels, often with exclusive rights in place, and has agreed to purchase up to 1000 units as an initial order, for Fall 2021 installs for select elementary and middle schools in the Riyadh area. Specific details including system type and price were not disclosed.The systems are in high demand due to an increased focus on post-pandemic security, and the “peace of mind” the systems provide for school administrators. For parents, ATWT is offering a much welcomed, user-friendly solution and smartphone app, thus providing the security of knowing the whereabouts of the school bus, and their children’s journey from home to school and back.
Together, the products provide K-12 schools and day care centers additional child safety, while also keeping close track of their fleet, at an incredibly competitive market price.
Parents can track the precise location of the school bus, and its estimated time of arrival (or “ETA”), as well as have a live view of inside the bus, and receive instant text notifications from the bus verifying and confirming that their child safely got on/off the bus, simultaneously on their smartphone.
SafeBus INTL combines a highly competitive business model with a vast distribution network of buyers and government purchasers, and a clear focus on product marketing and safety education.
SafeBus President Stuart Barton stated, “Although we have been focusing on US-based day care centers during our startup phase, this new partnership will enable us to immediately broaden our horizon, and think on an international level. Due to the strong distribution relationships already in place, we anticipate reaching a substantial number of buses and vans, as soon as we can bundle and ship.”The Distributor’s experienced management team has a long history making product sales in these Middle East territories, and is confident it can secure large-scale purchases quickly and efficiently, shipping directly from the US. This unique combination will serve to ensure the secure and reliable import and distribution of ATWT’s products and services to the exponentially growing market throughout Asia.
Prior to any shipment of systems or other technology to the Asian markets, the US government has certain licensing requirements to become an authorized exporter, certification which the Distributor has had for several years.
“We are exploring the opportunity for immediate sales beyond our nation’s borders, to countries like Saudi Arabia, whose cities have as many children and as many buses as we do,” said Ravi Saini, one of the founding partners of SafeBus INTL. “These new relationships will ramp up the Company’s sales efforts and require expanded manufacturing of the units. ATWT can go into high production mode, and hopefully attain exponential growth by 2023.”
