Mannai HED sells 300-tonne crane to ConXion
All-terrain vehicle offers essential reach and power
Qatar has taken delivery of its first 300-tonne Grove all-terrain crane after Mannai HED sold the vehicle to logistics and heavy equipment specialists ConXion.
Mannai HED, which is the heavy equipment division of Mannai Trading Company, said in a statement that the deal underlines its commitment to work with its partners to provide the specialised heavy equipment needed to enable Qatar to achieve its plans for infrastructure and real estate development, supporting Qatar National Vision 2030 and in preparation for hosting the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
The high-capacity crane offers essential reach and power to both lift and lower materials and to move them horizontally.
The acquisition gives Qatar-based ConXion a significant competitive advantage, particularly for the completion of signature high-rise projects in Qatar, and comes as the demand for such cranes in Qatar is at an all-time high.
ConXion provides logistics expertise and the transportation of cargo, heavy equipment and industrial products throughout Qatar and the GCC.
As a key partner of the construction industry, it is expanding its fleet of specialised vehicles – and particularly high-elevation cranes – as the number of construction and infrastructure projects in Qatar continues to grow.
Mannai HED is a distributor and provides after-sales support for internationally renowned heavy equipment lines, including Grove cranes, JCB units, TCM forklifts, Massey Ferguson agricultural equipment, Daewoo buses, DAF trucks, and Eicher trucks.
Mannai HED Operations general manager Khalid Yousef said: “The sale of this Grove crane comes at a time of increasing demand from the construction industry for high-capacity cranes, which will be crucial to help Qatar meet its targets for infrastructure and real estate development.”
ConXion Logistics Services and Heavy Equipment managing director Badr Ahmed al-Emadi added: “We are proud to work with Mannai HED to provide our clients with the latest, most specialised equipment in the world.”
