Crushing, screening and conveying equipment manufacturer Powerscreen has expanded its presence in the Middle East, having signed a deal with a new equipment distributor.
Powerscreen - a subsidiary brand of Terex - has appointed heavy equipment specialist Al Marwan as its authorised dealer for the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Described as a “partner of many key clients” in the mining, construction, quarrying, oil and gas industries, Al Marwan is headquartered in the city of Sharjah, UAE, with branches in Saudi Arabia and Oman.
It provides new and used excavators, dozers, cranes, loaders and trucks for hire and sale, and employs over 700 machine operators for its 1800-unit rental equipment fleet.
Imran Kazi, regional sales manager at Powerscreen, said: “The UAE is a strategic market for Powerscreen, and we were looking for a proactive dealer with an extensive market footprint to accomplish our common business objectives. With their excellent understanding of the crushing and screening industry and its customers, there could not have been a better choice than Al Marwan.”
Already an authorised dealer for Kobelco, Dynapac, Toku, Jisung and World Attachments, Al Marwan’s deal with Powerscreen will see it offer the manufacturer’s crushing and screening models, full service support and spare parts to customers across the country.
Motaz Al Zaiem, plant director at Al Marwan Group Holding, said: “Being a landmark in crushing and screening machinery, Powerscreen is the right partner to meet the growing demand for quarrying solutions in the region.
“The Chieftain 2100X screener is the first among many more products in Powerscreen’s wide catalogue of screening solutions that is readily available on our fleet as an authorised dealer.”
