Zahid Tractor sells first Bauer drilling rig
Riyadh, March 20, 2014
Saudi-based Zahid Tractor said its rental division has sold the first Bauer BG39 drilling rig in the Middle East to Huta Foundation Works Company to be used for the Madinah Holy Mosque expansion work.
Established in 1982, Zahid Tractor’s rental division began with a mission to provide customers with short and medium term rental solutions, pioneering the concept of renting equipment in Saudi Arabia.
Today the division is at the forefront of this sector, offering equipment, engines and generators for construction, mining, industrial, petroleum and special event organization applications, said the company in its statement.
Following the successful sale of the drilling rig, the Bauer Group has presented the rental division with the sales appreciation award 2013 for outstanding sales and achievement, it added.
In 2010, Zahid Tractor became the exclusive dealer for Bauer drilling rigs, tools and accessories in Saudi Arabia and since then, the Rental Division has worked to provide complete solutions and services to its customers.
Recently Bauer conducted machine operator training at the hitech Zahid Learning Center, the second of many training courses that will continue to be offered.
At the centre, the machine operators learn the best operation and drilling methods that employ the highest safety precautions and, once the training is successfully completed, Bauer presents a license indicating the individual is qualified to work as a Bauer piling rig operator, said the Saudi company.-TradeArabia News Service
