Dubai-based contractor owns and runs 42 units of certified used Cat kit in a decade-old relationship with regional dealer
Regional machinery powerhouse Mohamed Abdulrahman Al-Bahar has reported a “success story” with used Caterpillar equipment for one of its large customers, the Dubai-headquartered general contracting company United Engineering Construction Co. (UNEC).
According to Al-Bahar, the Caterpillar dealer for the GCC excluding Saudi Arabia, UNEC has purchased 42 units of used Cat equipment, comprising telehandlers, wheel loaders, compactors, skid-steer loaders and backhoe loaders. The units were bought under the Cat Certified Used (CCU) programme.
The models include the Cat TH417, TH589, TH514, TH580, TH414 and TH630 telehandlers; 950H wheel loader; CS533 compactor; 216 and 226 skid-steer loaders; and 422F and 422E backhoe loaders.
Al-Bhar said that UNEC, which has extensive experience across the construction industry, was looking for quality used machinery for its projects, with good resale value and low cost of repairs. Since the machines to be purchased were going to be used equipment, longevity was the main concern. The goal was to find durable machines with reliable support, which would not upset the budgets.
“Caterpillar machines were on the top of their list. Having known Al-Bahar and their support network in the region, decision making was rather simplified. With Cat Certified Used Machines from Al-Bahar, UNEC was assured of the quality, as each used machine is selected, inspected and serviced to a higher standard certified,” said Al-Bahar’s statement.
The statement quoted Saad Dalbah, plant manager, UNEC, as saying: “Cat Certified Used (CCU) machines from Al-Bahar are the best option in the current market if you need good machines with high performance and good value.”
The used machines came with warranties that guaranteed good resale value, along with regular follow-ups to help the customer keep repair costs within budgets. Al-Bahar added that with the availability of equipment service histories, it was easy for UNEC to plan maintenance and repairs, avoiding downtime.
Commenting on the decade-old relationship between the Cat dealer and UNEC, Anas Ashour, used equipment manager, Al-Bahar, said: “UNEC is a very special customer for us. We are glad they appreciate Al-Bahar for the ease of doing business – starting from the transparency in the service history of the machines, fixed prices and instant quotes they received.
“Every machine in our used fleet is fully inspected and serviced using genuine Cat parts. With a strong Caterpillar warranty, our CCU machines provide remarkable value and peace of mind. I am sure it is these remarkable attributes of our used machines that sustained and fostered a relationship beyond 10 years. We look forward to assisting them in the future involving their requirements for heavy equipment and more.”
Cat Certified Used machines from Al-Bahar include products that range from articulated off-highway trucks, paving rollers, motor graders and excavators to backhoes loaders, wheel loaders and skid steer loaders.
