Sultan International Electronics Company is part of one of the oldest business houses in the Middle East. Our parent company WJ TOWELL & CO, was founded in Oman in 1866 and has been a leading business house in the region for almost one and a half centuries! More details of this company can be seen at www.wjtowell.com.
Sultan Triveni, Sultan International Printing Co. and Sultan International Electronics Co., are clubbed together under the same management..
Our division commenced operations in Kuwait as the Banking Machines Division of WJ Towell & Co in 1977. We started off by selling various currency counting and associated machines to the banks and financial institutions in Kuwait. We have been the sole distributor in Kuwait for Laurel Banking Machines of Japan ever since. By 1983 we diversified our activities to include other electronic equipment also, and were selling Yamato scales to the supermarkets here. By 1990 (invasion of Kuwait) we had more than 90% of the currency counting and 75% share of the scales business in Kuwait.
After the liberation of Kuwait, the computer division, the banking machines division and the telecom division of WJ Towell & Co were combined together and were operating in Kuwait under the name of Middle East Telecommunications Co (METCO).
By 2003, with the rapid expansion of the various divisions of METCO, we felt it was better to spin off the banking machines division into a separate company in order to focus better on serving our various customers. Thus in 2003 we reorganized as SULTAN INTERNATIONAL ELECTRONICS CO.(SIECO)
