Shantui Construction Machinery Co., a multinational company based in Shandong, China, opened its Middle East and North Africa subsidiary, Shantui Construction Machinery FZE. The branch company, strategically located in Dubai, is positioned to take advantage of the region’s tremendous growth opportunities.
More than a sales office, the branch company offers full after-sales support, technical support and parts distribution. The warehouse, already stocked with US $1 million of spare parts, will hold more than US $20 million of parts once fully stocked.
“The Middle East and North Africa are of great strategic importance for Shantui, and we are planning for the long term,” said Wang Feng, managing director of Shantui Construction FZE. “With a diverse team that includes local talent, we are ready to help our customers grow and to grow along with them.”
Shantui’s products are already being used throughout the Middle East and North Africa. More than 80 units of equipment are being used on infrastructure products in Iraq, including the company’s SD32 bulldozer. Beginning in August, 30 units of the SD32 will be used on the construction of an expressway linking Saudi Arabia and Oman.
"We are very excited that Shantui chose Dubai for its regional hub,” said Adil Al Zarooni, senior vice president for global sales at Economic Zones World. “Jafza is an ideal location for a growing multinational, such as Shantui."
Shantui produces a highly diversified line of construction, road and cement-handling machinery, including wheel loaders, road rollers, truck cranes, motor graders, forklifts and excavators.
