Zahid Tractor’s EVP Fahad Y Zahid says that Caterpillar’s new Middle East Distribution Centre in the UAE will help it to improve its operation in Saudi Arabia.
The new 500,000 square-foot state-of-the-art facility was officially opened in the Jebel Ali Free Zone at the end of last month and has been built to assist the strengthening of Caterpillar’s after-market parts support network in the region.
“Caterpillar’s new Middle East Distribution Centre signifies an important investment in the region and a dedication to the perennial progress of the Middle East economy,” said Zahid. “The enhanced logistics and service offering the new MEDC will enable us to offer will not only benefit our direct clients, but it will also serve to improve efficiency of operations across a variety of sectors in Saudi Arabia. Our partnership with Caterpillar has played an integral and vital role in the development of the Kingdom’s construction industry for more than 60 years. We are proud to continue this role, helping to facilitate our country’s substantial current and future projects in commercial real estate development, industrial expansion and the infrastructure sector.”
“We are very pleased to be adding the Middle East Distribution Center to our industry-leading global parts network,” said Steve Larson, Vice President of Caterpillar Inc. and President of Caterpillar Logistics Inc. “With the outstanding product support capability of CAT dealers in the region and the improved parts availability this operation will deliver, we will continue providing customers with an unmatched level of after-sales support.”
