Machines that are used in refineries and other industries must meet the highest demands with regard to quality, safety and fast, reliable service. Mahdi Al Salem, deputy Branch Manager of Sankyu Saudi Arabia says: "To grow our business in Saudi Arabia and live up to our vision and mission of being number one in mechanical industry maintenance, we need to rely on strong customer service and products with a high level of safety. The new cranes from Liebherr are a perfect fit for our support team. With Liebherr, we can rely on competent and fast service should the cranes ever break down. Crane operations in refineries and other sensitive industries are very challenging." Liebherr provides this highly qualified service through Saudi Liebherr Company Ltd. with headquarters in Jeddah and branches in Dammam and Riyadh.

Sankyu also cites the price-performance ratio and reliability as key factors in its decision to use Liebherr cranes. The 50-tonne LTM 1050-3.1 mobile crane and the LTM 1160-5.2 with a maximum lifting capacity of 180 tonnes, combined with special equipment for working in different industries, precisely meet the requirements of major Saudi clients such as the oil production company Saudi Aramco. With their long telescopic booms and high lifting capacities in their respective crane classes, the Liebherr mobile cranes are the perfect choice for the jobs planned by Sankyu.
