Consumer electronics sector Al Faisaliah Group was founded on the Consumer Electronics industry. In 1970, the Group began operating the distributorship of Sony products in the Kingdom, supplying transistor radios, tape recorders and black & white televisions. In 1971, the professional electronics business (now Modern Media Systems) was established to handle Sony Professional products serving the media requirements of various government Ministries. The business has grown remarkably over the intervening years and now constitutes Al Faisaliah Group’s largest sector. The business has become much more diversified: although Sony remains a core partner, the sector now supplies a wide range of electronic products and solutions to consumers, businesses and government. The sector contains four market-facing companies under the E&S Holding Company umbrella.
