- PRESS RELEASE
The continuous growth and strong prospects of Saudi Arabia's infrastructure and construction sectors are demanding that global manufacturers have the right quality distributor networks in place to ensure success.
Speaking during his visit in Saudi Arabia to mark the first anniversary since the acquisition of Al-Rehab Equipment & Machinery Company, Paul Floyd, Managing Director of FAMCO, said, "The company's performance in the last 12 months has grown from strength to strength across the country and in line with the region's sustained economic growth."
"Saudi Arabia's aspirational development plans across many key sectors of economic activity are driving our business in the Kingdom and fuelling our expansion plans across and beyond our current five locations," said Mr. Floyd, who visited Jeddah and Riyadh together with a delegation of senior Al-Futtaim Group officials headed by Mr. Omar Al-Futtaim, the group's Vice Chairman.
"Our mutli-award winning range of top quality machinery and equipment brands are made for the tough conditions and demanding landscape and climate of Saudi Arabia and are already the preferred partners for a large number of industry players involved in infrastructure development across the Kingdom," said Mr. Floyd.
FAMCO is a distributor of leading industrial and construction brands in the GCC such as Volvo Trucks and Volvo Buses in the UAE, Volvo Construction Equipment in Saudi Arabia and the UAE, as well as Merlo telehandlers, Linde material handling equipment, Dexion industrial storage systems, Ingersoll Rand air compressors and tools, Yanmar power products and Himoinsa generators.
