New range of premium, standard and utility forklifts unveiled at events in Abu Dhabi and Dubai
Kanoo Machinery, a member of the Kanoo Group, has introduced a new range of Hyster and Utilev forklift trucks in the UAE and wider GCC market.
The forklifts were unveiled at a materials-handling event at the Kanoo Machinery premises in Abu Dhabi and Dubai on April 14 and 16 respectively. The event was organised to exhibit a three-tiered offering including premium, standard and utility Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) forklifts to guests, suppliers and customers in the region.
Kanoo Machinery is the authorised distributor for Hyster and Utilev in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and Qatar.
The company introduced the Hyster Fortens premium forklifts alongside the Hyster TX as a tougher and lower-cost offering, available in five capacities ranging from 1.5-3.5t, with engine options covering diesel, LPG, petrol or dual fuel. The forklifts can be used in a wide range of applications including logistics, manufacturing, agriculture and construction.
Additionally, Kanoo Machinery also revealed a lower-intensity, utility range from Utilev. The Hyster and Utilev brands are both owned by US-based Nacco Materials Handling Group (NMHG).
Deon Klerck, divisional manager of Kanoo Machinery said the material-handling equipment market in the Middle East is considerably different from other parts of the world. “For this reason we have been working very closely with NMHG for the last 12 months in an effort to develop products that cater to these specific needs. We now offer the market three significantly different value solutions in the mainstream 3 tonne diesel forklift truck market segment.”
