Dubai, November 27, 2009
JCB Power Products, a top manufacturer of construction equipment, confirmed a $100,000 deal with UAE equipment hire company Al Mutawa General Transport for nine JCB LT9 lighting towers.
The deal was made at the recently concluded Big 5 PMV show, a construction plant machinery vehicles exhibition in Dubai.
“It’s a good start and we hope this will be a platform leading to significant sales across the region over the next 12 months as the market recovers,” said Faizal Hamze, JCB’s export sales manager for the Middle East.
Highly transportable and ideal for rental fleets, the nine-metre JCB LT9 provides temporary, portable light to a vast range of applications within road construction, rail construction and the events and agricultural sectors.
Among the biggest attractions at the Big 5 PMV exhibition were JCB’s world-famous Dancing Diggers, the mechanical dancing troupe which made their Dubai exhibition debut after thrilling crowds at events world wide with intricate routines set to music.
“The Big 5 PMV has been an excellent opportunity to strengthen the JCB brand in the Middle East,” said Paul Murray, District Sales Manager for the Middle East at JCB.
“The response we have got from the JCB Dancing Digger display has been really positive and this has been an ideal launch for the show in this region.”
Creating a platform for plant, machinery, construction vehicles and equipment suppliers to meet face to face with key buyers from across the region and overseas, the Big 5 PMV attracted 149 exhibitors from 20 countries. – TradeArabia News Service
