7: Kanoo Machinery
Kanoo Machinery is established in the heart of GCC construction
For a long time now Kanoo Machinery has established itself into the heart of GCC construction. It has stayed ahead of the competition by the breadth of its products – for whichever part of the project is being worked on onsite, there’s a good chance it is a Kanoo machine in operation. The company has helped the region grow to what we see today.
A family business, Kanoo’s range includes general application machines such as Grove cranes and Hyster forklifts to more specific machines such as Lincoln arc-welding machines and Tennant road sweepers and scrubbers. From the cranes that helped place pipes into the desert to the earth moving machines that paved the ways, Kanoo Machinery and Commercial Division has worked on some of the most extensive projects.
The Kanoo Machinery and Commercial Division represents a wide range of leading international equipment manufacturers throughout Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and Oman within such areas as maintenance and construction, earth-moving machinery, cranes and material handling.
Last year, its export department won a major contract from Pexi Gulf to supply 12 Bobcat telehandlers for re-export. The AED4.2 million deal was a result of the department’s expansion into not just the Middle East, but Africa and Asia. Kanoo is one of the region’s most well-known entrepreneurs, with a keen eye for joint ventures.
