The main objective of AKASS Engineering is to bring a World Class service in the IT support and infrastructure design and implementation area.

With the growing number of organizations seeking support and consultancy services from the company, it became more evident that we should have a stock of critical spars and special tools required for quick recovery of our customers business in case of an IT failure.

Unfortunately, finding such item in the local market, fulfilling the required quality was a challenge and sometimes totally impossible. (Genuine computer parts, Print Inc, special VSAT maintenance tools, coaxial cables and connectors, computers with licensed original software fulfilling our expectation and our customers confidence,.. ).

With this, AKASS acquired an import license from government which included an import of networking materials, computers and computer parts.

We have forged good partnership with several Computer and VSAT part manufactures and vendors in several parts of the world and can import any required parts based on an order from our clients.

(See available stock List)

Again, with the intention of promoting a world class IT services in the country, AKASS has forged a partnership with  one of the best antivirus company McAfee, and is a registered partner.
