Kanoo Cranes will be the new exclusive dealer for the Maeda mini cranes in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Oman and Bahrain, after Swedish dealer Kranlyft Group signed an agreement with the UAE-based Kanoo Group.
The Kranlyft Group has represented mini cranes from Japanese manufacturer Maeda in Europe, Russia, Africa and the Middle East since the late 1990s while the Kanoo Group is one of the largest family-owned businesses in the GCC.
Kanoo Cranes, which focuses on providing engineered crane solutions to the oil & gas, construction and industrial markets, will provide sales, parts and servicing for Maeda products in the Gulf region. Kranlyft added that with the appointment of Kanoo Cranes, it is looking to increase the penetration of Maeda products in the GCC region.
“Kanoo Cranes has an excellent reputation and long history of entrepreneurial experience. These are very exciting times for us at Kranlyft Group and for the Maeda brand. When looking for a dealer to appoint for these important markets Kanoo Cranes becomes a natural partner with its extensive experience in the field of lifting, great technical knowledge and a well-established network reaching over various markets and industries. We feel very confident that this will be the start of a long and prosperous business relation together,” said Jurgen Vater, CEO Kranlyft Group.
