Regional Competence Centers

PICCs Middle East


PI Middle East is proud to support three PI Competence Centers (PICCs) that will service the Middle East region.

PI Competence Centers (PICCs) are centers of technical expertise and provide service and support to end-users of PROFIBUS and PROFINET technologies. There are currently 37 PICCs in 22 countries, a virtual guarantee of global support wherever you happen to be located.

PICCs offer technical support to anyone who needs it and they play an essential role in supporting first-time developers of PROFIBUS and PROFINET devices and systems. PICCs often support local RPAs in the delivery of technical seminars and workshops.

PICCs can also act independently to provide a non-partisan service respecting commercial sensitivties all the while bringing the synergy of the global organization to bear on the development of PROFIBUS and PROFINET products.

PICCs are governed by 'Quality of Services' Agreements administered by PI to ensure the technical excellence of the service they deliver.

Each PICC Middle East is responsible for supporting PROFIBUS and PROFINET end-users in the following ways:

- troubleshooting (on-/off-site)

- service and support

- network architecture advice

The competence centers are located in: UAE, Saudi Arabia & Lebanon. For contact details, see below.


If your comany is interested in becoming a Certified PROFIBUS Competence Centre, we are currently looking for a qualified partner in Qatar.
