The crane and heavy haulage company Arabian Machinery & Heavy Equipment Co. (AMHEC) decided to place an extraordinary order in December 2023: AMHEC ordered a total of 55 new mobile cranes from Liebherr with lifting capacities from 100 to 800 tonnes. Mr. Ajanthas Kumarathas, Branch Manager and Head of Division at Saudi Liebherr Co. emphasised: “We are proud to be able to supply AMHEC with this number of cranes. Since 1983, Liebherr has consistently demonstrated to its customers in Saudi Arabia its reliability as a partner. This track record is the foundation upon which customers, including AMHEC, rely, and extend the partnership further.” Within the scope of this record order the company will acquire LTM 1100-5.3, LTM 1110-5.2, LTM 1160-5.2, LTM 1230 5.1, LTM 1250-5.1, LTM 1300-6.3, LTM 1450-8.1, LTM 1650-8.1 and LTM 1750-9.1 cranes. “We already have numerous cranes with a lifting capacity between 50 and 500 tonnes. We are now proud to also complete our fleet with a nine axle crane so that we can fulfil all orders for our customers. The cranes are a great addition to our fleet and a beneficial factor to our sustainable growth in this promising market.” emphasizes Mr. Abdullah Al-Suwaiket.

AMHEC uses its cranes throughout the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for industrial lifting jobs and many other areas of application. Mr. Abdullah Al-Suwaiket said: “We serve a wide variety of tasks in Saudi Arabia. We depend on and trust in the reliable, high-quality medium-sized and large cranes from Liebherr.” To take account of these different areas of application and the requirements of its major customers, AMHEC ordered its cranes with the maximum possible number of driven axles and the “Emergency Package” for the highest level of safety.

Al-Suwaiket confirmed Liebherr's excellent reputation in the Arab country: “Liebherr is a very well-known brand here in the Kingdom and is preferred throughout the local markets. Its cranes are characterised by high quality and reliability. The local branch here also ensures excellent service.”

The first cranes from this order will arrive in the Kingdom in a few months, bringing the company's crane fleet to a total of more than 400 cranes. Al-Suwaiket added: “We are looking forward to receiving our new cranes. Each crane is characterised by its own advantages. Some models also include great improvements.”
