Automation and Engineering Academy Nig. Ltd. (AEA) is an offshoot of SAFE CURRENT MULTIPURPOSE ENGINEERING WORKS that started as a corporate business enterprise in 2002. The company started out by providing Industrial Electrical Services and Repairs for several companies in the Western Region of Nigeria. The name changed to AEA was effected in the year 2012 following the return of the founder from United Kingdom  where he studied Electronics and Automation Engineering.

The primary business focus of AEA is to render high-tech industrial automation and allied engineering services to Nigerian corporate organizations that need yet lack experienced automation specialists and services.
