About International Development Company LLC (IDC)

International Development Company LLC (IDC) represents over 100 international and national companies and actively promotes their products and services to the largest clients in the UAE in the Energy (Oil & Gas, Petrochemical), Power & Water, Telecommunications and Construction industries.

Years, and in some cases decades, of established relationships with reputable partners has enabled IDC to continuously provide its clients with premium quality products and a wide range of skills, technologies and services.

The company was founded in 1978 in Abu Dhabi, UAE, and has since been committed to supporting the region’s development within the Oil & Gas sector.

In 1989, IDC established ‘AIE Industrial Equipment Trading Company’ in Dubai to closely cater to businesses in the Northern Emirates. IDC (and AIE) began as quality suppliers of equipment, machinery, field services and spare parts to Oil & Gas exploration, refining, and distribution companies.


They have since expanded into different industries and have diversified their offerings to include project development, after-sales support, consultancy services, chemical and industrial manufacturing as well as Digital Transformation and Technology services and solutions. IDC has also set up service facilities in the UAE to enable servicing and encourage asset longevity and sustainability.

These service centers have allowed IDC to advance their after-sales support services and have been a source of great convenience for both clients and business partners.

More recently, IDC has also established several specialized divisions

Over the last decade, IDC has grown into a group of diversified companies, IDC Group, under which its core business sits (including its Iraq-based operations). In addition, the group constitutes established companies in the fields of manpower solutions (IDCMPS), real estate (Guardian Tower Real Estate) and Oil & Gas and Construction chemicals manufacturing (PAC technologies).

In-Country Value Program (ICV)

Having been committed to contributing towards the country’s economic development for over 40 years, IDC is a huge advocate of the local movement, which encourages supporting local industries and pushing local spending. IDC has been a member of the ICV program since its inception and has been proactively making continuous improvements to boost its ICV score year-on-year. This has placed the company in an advantageous position during procurement stages with its governmental and semi-governmental clients, which in turn has strengthened the position of its represented partners.
