New Agent Helps Bridge The Gulf

One of the Middle East’s leading transport industry suppliers, Arabian Railway Company (ARC), is joining our network of agents to introduce Saudi Arabia to Mechan’s heavy lifting products.

Lee Pitts, our sales manager, said: “There is a particularly active rail industry in the Middle East, where significant investment is being made in infrastructure. Having such a well respected, high profile partner representing our depot maintenance products will no doubt open doors and help us extend our reach across the region.”

We were introduced to ARC at last year’s Middle East Rail Exhibition in Dubai, following which a visit to our Sheffield headquarters was arranged. A meeting between Richard Carr, Mechan’s managing director, ARC chief executive, Emad Alrajih and director, Andrew Hammond, was then held in London to agree principle terms for a formal partnership arrangement.

Andrew Hammond added: “We are really looking forward to working with Mechan. The firm’s lifting products are a perfect complement to the multi disciplinary services we already provide and we are keen to forge links with manufacturers that have such an excellent track record for safety and reliability.”

Lee Pitts will be joining ARC on stand C35 at this year’s Middle East Rail exhibition in Dubai from March 17-18. He will be available throughout the trade fair to answer visitor questions about our wide range of lifting and handling products.
