Case Construction Equipment has appointed International Equipment and Contracting Co (IECC) as its new dealer in Oman to meet growing demand for construction machinery from contractors, government organisations and rental businesses.
The global construction machinery manufacturer, which is owned by Italy’s CNH Industrial Group, said in a statement that the move follows its anticipation of a boost in the sultanate’s construction equipment market based on rising oil prices and government investment in energy, manufacturing, transportation and utilities, as well as major public sector construction projects.
IECC, a Bahwan International Group company, was established in 1985 and has modern facilities in Mawaleh, Muscat, along with depots in Sohar and Salahah. The company has more than 100 staff with dedicated sales and service teams working in commercial vehicles, earthmoving, construction, industrial and surveying equipment and has become an important player in Oman’s infrastructure development, Case said in its statement.
IECC has committed to sell and support the full range of Case construction machinery throughout the sultanate, including the heavy and compact line and the new Case range of motor graders. The company has a dedicated and knowledgeable workforce, a substantial parts stockholding and fully trained technicians to provide service and maintenance to customers, both on their construction sites and in its workshops, the statement added.
“IECC is committed to being a dominant player in Oman’s infrastructure through the supply of world-class high-end technology and best in class after sales support,” said Sheikh Ahmed Suhail Bahwan, chairman of Bahwan International Group.
“Since its inception, IECC has catered for the construction sector by supplying various types of construction equipment for road building, bridges and general construction, pipelines and infrastructure projects. IECC is privileged to represent Case Construction Equipment in Oman, reaffirming the trust and value of the relationship that we have had with CNH Industrial Group over the last 10 years. We have built strong relationships with construction companies, contractors and rental organisations by providing high quality equipment backed by excellent after sales support.”
IECC already has a strong relationship with CNH Industrial Group as a distributor of road transport products from its group company Iveco, and has an established service network across the country, the statement added.
Commenting on the agreement, Franco Invernizzi, senior business director for CNH Industrial Africa and Middle East, said: “Case Construction Equipment is committed to delivering the highest quality service and support throughout the Middle East and I am delighted that IECC has agreed to become our exclusive dealer for the Sultanate of Oman.”
