CGS was founded in 1976 when Swiss Engineer Albert Grunenfelder and his counterpart Saudi Entrepreneur Esmat Al Saady joined hands. The company quickly established a loyal customer base due to providing application focused and innovative solutions that performed well in the demanding environment of Saudi Arabia. Commercial Utility Vehicles and Multi-purpose Shelters were only a few of the products offered during the company startup phase.

Over the years, our in-house engineering team expanded significantly, enabling CGS to propose effective and efficient solutions for the most complex and demanding customer requirements.

We are proud to be partner of several Ministries for development of demanding solutions such as EMP shelters, Mobile Clinics, Utility Vehicles and command centers.

Continuous investments in in-house production capabilities allow CGS to perform to the highest quality standards. Today we operate several CNC machine centers and invest into Industry 4.0 technologies.

Since 1978 CGS is the exclusive distributor for Carrier Transicold products and is today their second oldest partner globally. Carrier Transport Refrigeration units have been jointly optimized to operate reliably in the Middle East climate.

Over the years, CGS continuously expanded its portfolio and is now the leader for transport refrigeration in the Kingdom; Reefer Trucks and Trailers are part of a wide range of medium & heavy transport solutions. A Refrigeration Division supports customers with stationary temperature control solutions for buildings and processes. After-sales support is provided for all products through its own service network strategically positioned around the Kingdom. CGS can offer design, execute and maintain integrated cold chain solutions that protect perishable goods such as pharmaceuticals and food items on their journey from production to the point of sales.

To safeguard its customers and employees, the CGS founder families have in 2018 appointed an external Group CEO and implemented a holding structure where both families together hold Board positions.
