Lockheed Martin

Donald M. Wix, Jr, Director of International Customer Relations

DSMC is absolutely a critical organization that ties in the defense industry with key UAE Government offices, ministries and UAE Defense Companies. The UAE is a wonderful country to do business in and with, and one key ingredient to that success is developing and establishing an enduring and trusting relationship. DSMC plays that role with exceptional success. The monthly meetings and socials for sure build that relations bridge necessary to meet the UAE's industrial needs.

Northrop Grumman

Tom Rodabaugh, General Manager - UAE Office, Northrop Grumman 

DSMC's performance to provide logistical support to my company was spectacular. We asked for a firm fixed price bid on a project that would be executed 6 months after contract signing. Even though the job was complex, Matthew assembled a professional team and delivered on time and on budget. The logistics were first quality, the results were spectacular. DSMC has my highest recommendation for event

Saab Ltd.

Anna-Karin Rosén Managing Director, Saab Ltd, Abu Dhabi, UAE - SAAB

During the last three years I have been working with DSMC and during this time I have had different roles for Saab in the UAE. I especially appreciate the professionalism and enthusiasm whether it is running monthly Offset Working Group meetings or moderating high profile panel discussions. I can highly recommend DSMC to promote interaction between Defence Contractors, Partners and Government regarding Offset, Industrial Participation and Economic Development in the UAE.
