First Liebherr mobile cranes deal for ‘delighted’ Sankyu Saudi Arabia Co.
Sankyu says the price-performance ratio and reliability were key factors in its decision to use Liebherr cranes
Liebherr says it is delighted to have a new customer: Sankyu Saudi Arabia Co. after the firm took delivery of its first mobile cranes from the Germany-based market leader.
The specialist in plant construction, operational support and logistics services will mainly use the LTM 1050-3.1 and LTM 1160-5.2 for maintenance work in refineries and other industries.
Machines that are used in refineries and other industries must meet the highest demands with regard to quality, safety and fast, reliable service.
“To grow our business in Saudi Arabia and live up to our vision and mission of being number one in mechanical industry maintenance, we need to rely on strong customer service and products with a high level of safety,” said Mahdi Al Salem, deputy Branch Manager, Sankyu Saudi Arabia.
“The new cranes from Liebherr are a perfect fit for our support team. With Liebherr, we can rely on competent and fast service should the cranes ever break down. Crane operations in refineries and other sensitive industries are very challenging.”
Liebherr provides this highly qualified service through Saudi Liebherr Company Ltd with headquarters in Jeddah and branches in Dammam and Riyadh.
Sankyu also cites the price-performance ratio and reliability as key factors in its decision to use Liebherr cranes. The 50-tonne LTM 1050-3.1 mobile crane and the LTM 1160-5.2 with a maximum lifting capacity of 180 tonnes, combined with special equipment for working in different industries, precisely meet the requirements of major Saudi clients such as the oil production company Saudi Aramco. With their long telescopic booms and high lifting capacities in their respective crane classes, the Liebherr mobile cranes are the perfect choice for the jobs planned by Sankyu.
The company name Sankyu comes from the English expression “thank you”. The Sankyu Group of Companies is headquartered in Japan, and can look back on a century of entrepreneurial activities under the guiding principle of “valuing people” since its founding in 1918.
The company is active in two business areas. The Logistics segment is involved in the loading and unloading of ships, the operation of container terminals as well as the packaging, storage and management of warehouses and transport services. The Machine Factory segment is engaged in the construction, installation, piping and maintenance of general industrial machinery and environmental equipment, the transportation of large and heavy goods, the design, assembly and construction of bridges, and the construction of factory facilities.
