German and Chinese products purchased to aid transition into Saudi market
Abdel Hadi Abdullah Al Qahtani & Sons’ Vehicle & Machinery Branch has introduced new products from Germany and China to progress its expansion in Saudi Arabia.
The German air-compression systems, manufactured by BOGE, include turbo and craftsman compressors, control systems, oil-injected screw compressors and oil-free piston and screw compressors.
According to the company’s managing director Khaled El Shatoury, they were selected for BOGE’s reputation to produce durable and easy-to-use products. The Chinesemade, material-lifting equipment is manufactured by Zowell and includes manual, electric, and semi-electric units capable of lifting up to 2.5 tons. The units will meet a “growing demand” for supplying warehouse lifting material. Speaking of Al Qahtani’s ambitions, El Shatoury commented: “Our plans for expansion never stop, whether this expansion is in product range, manpower or infrastructure facilities. In the meantime, our plans include opening another branch in a major market in Saudi Arabia.”
Details are not yet confirmed but the firm hopes to begin the process quarter one of 2011.
In July, he told The Big Project he was confident the huge budget for KSA projects would put developments on track in the country.
