American Science and Engineering (AS&E) has announced that it has received an order to supply its Z Portal cargo screening system and Gemini parcel inspection systems to Najaf International Airport.
Chuck Dougherty, AS&E's President and CEO, said:
"We are proud to have been selected by Najaf Airport, one of Iraq's busiest airports, to provide the advanced technology and expert technical support it needs to protect the safety of passengers, personnel, and infrastructure."
Sheikh Faed Al-Shimary, Director General of the Najaf Airport Authority, said:
"Passengers and freight forwarders are increasingly turning to Najaf Airport for their international air travel and shipping requirements. We chose AS&E's comprehensive detection solutions because they provide rapid inspection of vehicles and carry-on luggage in a high-security and high-traffic environment while ensuring the flow of passengers and commerce — and because it is well-known in our region for delivering exceptional, responsive customer service."
To secure this order, AS&E worked closely with its distributor, ASJ, in Najaf, Iraq.
