Trucking giant eyes Bahrain construction boom
Manama, April 25, 2012
MAN Truck & Bus Middle East, one of the world's leading manufacturers of transport vehicles, said it plans to concentrate on the promising Bahraini construction sector through its national partner Ahmed Mansoor Al A'ali.
The Bahrain-based distributor, which is rebranding this division of its extensive operations as AMA Motors, has ordered 40 vehicles as it sees business booming in Bahrain's industrial sector.
'Business is certainly looking good and we have been going out to visit 50 clients a week to meet demand,' said Ahmed Mansoor Al A'ali AMA Motors general manager Simon Keen.
'To meet this demand we have revamped our showroom,' he added.
He was speaking on the opening day of gulfBID 2012 where he signed a contract for MAN deliveries.
'There is a definite feeling of confidence in the market and local purchasers are telling us the market is more confident across all industries,' he said.
'The company provides a wide range of industrial products ranging from small compactors to huge wheel leaders.
'This show is very important to our business and we have invited 200 of our customers to visit us at gulfBID.
'MAN has built a strong presence in Bahrain with a 28 per cent market share which already exceeds our target for this market,' Keen said.
'Our reputation and leadership position globally and in the Middle East region positions us strongly in terms of quality, technological advancement, safety and efficiency, both in fuel consumption and costs,' he added.
MAN plans to explore the available opportunities during the exhibition where it is launching its latest range of heavy duty construction vehicles - the TGS WW.
'The TGS WW has witnessed a very positive reception within this region with a significantly high number of orders since it entered the Middle East earlier this year,' said MAN Truck and Bus Middle East and Africa area sales manager Friedel Gevers.
'TGS is the premium range from MAN Truck & Bus, one of the world's leading manufacturers of transport vehicles.
'The TGS WW range is part of the manufacturer's Trucknology Generation, designed especially for the toughest of operations making it a reliable product for the Middle East, Africa, Russian states and Far East markets.
'MAN brings more than 250 years of industrial engineering expertise to the development of our products, which offer a superior level of efficiency, safety and performance in a wide variety of geographic and climactic conditions,' he added.
'We have a robust distribution network and the largest service support footprints among all manufacturers of heavy duty construction vehicles in the Middle East which makes us a preferred choice for some of the biggest construction clients in the region,' he added.-TradeArabia News Service
