Hyva has reported a delivery of 45 truck cranes in Saudi Arabia, with the Riyadh-based customer opting for the Dutch manufacturer’s HB 50 and HB 60 cranes.
The units were delivered by Alaa For Industries (AFI), Hyva’s partner in Saudi Arabia, and will be part of a fleet of commercial vehicles handling general cargo throughout the kingdom. Hyva said its HB series of articulated cranes are extremely versatile and easy to operate. With a maximum outreach of 11,90m and a maximum lifting capacity of 6.58t, the HB60 model is the ideal solution for robust, versatile applications, said the manufacturer.
Hyva also said the customer’s decision to buy its cranes was based on the reputation of both the product as well as on AFI being a strong Hyva partner, “a one-stop-shop for quality hydraulic transport solutions with a full-fledged after sales support team to back the services throughout the region”. AFI has multiple satellite service offices throughout Saudi Arabia and other branches in Kuwait, Bahrain and Qatar to support the after-sales requirements of its customers throughout the region.
Mohammed Ali Al-Khayyat, general manager, AFI, said: “This is a very important order. It is significant in size, and, most importantly, it recognises the quality of the Hyva brand and the premium service reputation that our customers recognise between Hyva and AFI. We have an extensive network of satellite offices around the country which offer true value to our customer as well as convenient and fast service to customers to help keep their operations running smoothly.”
Arno Raaijmakers, Hyva’s sales director for the Middle East region, praised the dealer, saying: “Together, since 1984, our successful partnership has built on our offering of an extensive range of crane configurations – every customer can choose the most appropriate crane for his specific needs – together with comprehensive after-sales support.”
