Malaysian automotive-to-insurance conglomerate DRB-Hicom said on Thursday it had teamed up with Saudi International Trading and Marketing (SITM) to bid for airport ground handling services in Saudi Arabia.

DRB-Hicom, owned by Malaysian tycoon Syed Mokhtar Al-Bukhary, said the collaboration would enable the business to expand its overseas operations.

The company has signed a memorandum of understanding with SITM through its wholly-owned subsidiary KL Airport Services, it said in a stock exchange filing.

The companies will do a feasibility study and submit their bid when they have received an invitation from the General Authority of Civil Aviation of Saudi Arabia.

DRB-Hicom did not reveal the potential value of the handling services contract.
