Commenting on the fleet expansion, Jassim Mustafa Boodai, chairman and managing director of Integrated, said: “We have achieved substantial growth in our company and as a result, we're purchasing more Manitowoc cranes to capitalise on the growing work levels in the oil and gas market.
“By expanding our fleet and developing our relationships with Manitowoc, we've established Integrated as a rental market leader in Kuwait. We plan to continue adding more cranes and growing the company to keep up with the fast-changing market and to meet future demands,” he added.
In addition to Kuwait, Integrated supplies rental units to Qatar and Saudi Arabia. The latest Grove acquisitions join the company's 600-strong fleet, which includes mobile cranes with capacities ranging from 50 tonnes to 2,300 tonnes.
Waleed Raouf, regional sales manager at Manitowoc Cranes Middle East, commented: “Integrated is a key player in the oil and gas market and strives to have the best equipment in its fleet to meet the demanding requirements that many job sites in this region have.
“This sale is significant for Manitowoc because it cements our relationship with Integrated, and further strengthens our market-leading position as the number-one supplier of all-terrain cranes in Kuwait,” he concluded.
