Johnson Arabia is adding several Maeda spider cranes taking its total fleet close to 1,000 units.
The firm operates across the GCC with a fleet of over 250 Mobile Cranes and over 700 AWP’s and says the new additions reflect changes in the needs of construction, oil and gas and other related industries, “in light of the current regional and global situation”.
“This investment is part of the vision to innovate and constantly bring new concepts to the market and just the start of the proposed expansion planned for the business,” explained managing director Martin Kirby.
“At Johnson Arabia we demand the very best in reliability, performance but above all safety and cost effectiveness from our long-term partners to ensure the very best support can always be offered to our clients.
“Our business is constantly evolving and expanding even during such challenging times and we will never stop demanding the best and will work together with our partners and clients to provide the industry with the best total lifting solutions.
With Johnson Arabia aiming to support its clients and various industries with new and innovative products, Mohammed Fareed, executive manager, cranes – Dubai, added that enhancing the fleet with mini spider cranes proves demonstrates that Johnson Arabia is committed to providing the region with effective complex lifting solutions based on growing needs.
“These spider cranes will enable companies to continue work on large scale projects and fast track certain challenging lifting and placement operations,” he said, praising their ‘limitless’ flexbility.
“The spider mini crane series will also work in conjunction with our existing line of cranes equipment which makes it an easy option for companies to choose from. This along with the best technical support in the business makes Johnson Arabia an easy option to choose from for a company’s lifting needs.”
These cranes set the standard with market leading performance, said the company in a statement outlining the launch. It now offers up to six crane models with tonnage ranging from 1t-8t, maximum lifting heights of 25m and maximum working radius of 18m.
Their ‘pick & carry’ feature will appeal to customers across a wide range of applications; from construction work to natural resource development, remarked Fareed.
Gareth Conley, executive manager, AWP Division, added: “These cranes will work alongside our AWP business very well where we continue to offer market leading back up with familiarization on every delivery and it will have the same focused immediate 24-hour service and support. Johnson Arabia has more than 20 years of experience operating in the GCC and has invested in these particular range of spider cranes from Maeda because it offers market leading advances in technology, performance, an innovative product that provides versatility, cost efficiency, ease of use and maintenance.
“Furthermore, there is a growing demand in our customer base for mini cranes, pick and carry cranes and vacuum lifter to aid their projects ranging from the construction industry to the oil and gas industry and even the Expo 2021 pavilions where it is difficult to have lager cranes and lifting devices. Johnson Arabia offers complete engineered solutions for lifting requirements with many experts in the field.”
