Omani contractor Galfar already owns about 200 Iveco trucks
Italian commercial vehicle manufacturer Iveco has supplied 207 Iveco Trakker trucks to Oman-based Galfar Engineering & Contracting, through its dealer in the sultanate.
The key handover ceremony was held at the Al Bustan Palace hotel in the presence of officials and executives from Iveco, Galfar Engineering & Contracting and International Equipment & Contracting Company LLC (IECC), Iveco’s Omani dealer.
Galfar’s truck procurement criteria places an emphasis on safety, fuel efficiency, low environmental impact, driver comfort and total cost of ownership, Iveco said in a statement.
“We have a strong business relationship with IECC that dates back to 2008,” said Salim Saeed Hamad Al Fannah Al Araimi, chairman at Galfar Engineering & Contracting, commenting on the purchase.
“In addition to the recent order of 207 units, our fleet already has approximately 200 Iveco trucks of different models.”
Iveco last week unveiled the completely re-engineered version of the Daily in Oman, making the sultanate the first country in the GCC where the vehicle has launched. The New Daily marks the third generation of Iveco’s light commercial vehicles, and is available both in van and chassis cab versions.
