- PRESS RELEASE
Governments across the GCC plan to invest US$1 trillion to develop their infrastructure according to a recent report by Deloitte. Of these countries, Mr. Nabil Salim, AAA Construction Equipment Director, emphatically states that Qatar and Saudi Arabia are the two countries with the most opportunity to attain a favorable return on investment.
Furthermore, with the hosting of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, projects planned and underway are estimated to be $230bn, reports Deloitte.
The significant investments being made across the GCC provide both positive and negative trends in the demand and supply of heavy machinery in the region.
In terms of negative trends, Mr. Salim stated that the high level of competition results in a vast amount of low quality and lower standard equipment flowing into the region.
"This has been a major threat to reputed manufacturers," said Mr. Salim. "Additionally, some customers are now looking for used equipment because of the huge investments required to buy heavy machineries."
Mr. Salim further continued to highlight the positive trends stating that a steady growth can be seen in the heavy machinery market and a lot of projects have been awarded in the GCC, particularly UAE, Saudi Arabia and Qatar throughout the year. Additionally, the construction market which collapsed in the UAE, now shows reasonable growth.
The company, strengthening its presence in the UAE has set up its Abu Dhabi subsidiary AAA Construction Equipment LLC., and AAA Construction Equipment Rental Establishment to capitalize on current and future opportunities in the UAE's construction sector.
AAA Construction Equipment is confirmed to participate at INTERMAT Middle East 2012 and will exhibit heavy machinery including: the very reliable and durable 280 tonnes IHI Japanese CCH2800 Crawler Crane; the convenient and easy to rectify during troubleshooting 70 tonnes IHI Japanese CCH700 Crawler crane; the echo-friendly IHI Japanese 50 NX 3 mini excavator; the low dB and emission Nippon Sharyo NES150 Generator: and the Tadano Pre Owned All Terrain/Rough Terrain crane.
"INTERMAT Middle East will be an equally great platform to market our company brand as well as those of our products, both internationally and especially to the customers in the Middle East," said Mr. Salim.
Organized by Clarion Events Middle East and its partner, Comexposium, the second annual INTERMAT Middle East will take place at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) in UAE, from 8 - 10 October 2012, and will be held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, UAE Federal Minister of Public works.
