Zahid Tractor Recognized As Largest Counterbalance Dealer for Cat Lift Trucks Worldwide

Zahid Tractor was recently recognized as the largest counterbalance dealer for Cat lift trucks worldwide for the second consecutive year.

Mr. Yuichi Mano, President of the Cat® Lift Trucks organization in Europe, Africa and the Middle East, acknowledged their achievement in 2014 during the IV Dealer Council AME (Africa and the Middle East), held in Dubai the past April 28 and 29. Mr. Mano presented the award to Mr. Raed Hunaidi, Material Handling Product Manager for Zahid Tractor, and expressed his desire to build on the successful partnership. “Working with such a professional dealer helps build the future of our organization with the confidence of giving our customers in Saudi Arabia the highest level of service and support that they deserve,” commented Mr. Yuichi.

Herve Quatrhomme, General Manager of the new office of Cat Lift Trucks in the Middle East, located in Dubai, said, “I am very proud of the results of Zahid Tractor. This award is a clear recognition of their hard work and excellent partnership with our company.”

The relationship between Zahid and Caterpillar Inc. dates back to 1950, which led to the formation of Zahid Tractor & Heavy Machinery Co. Ltd. in 1967. Both companies have played a pivotal role in Saudi Arabia’s infrastructure development by supporting massive construction initiatives throughout the country, including the King Fahd Causeway, the industrial cities of Jubail and Yanbu, and, more recently, the North – South Railway, the Mecca Monorail project and the Riyadh City Metro.

Zahid Tractor offers the complete Cat Lift Trucks product line including Counterbalance Internal Combustion (IC), Electric and Warehouse equipment. Recently a new range of 2-15 tonnes IC products, coming from the Cat Lift Trucks factory in Houston, USA, has been added. The factory, which includes more than 600,000 square feet of manufacturing space, uses high-tech fabrication methods, sophisticated supply chain management technologies and advanced logistics to ensure the design, manufacture and delivery of the highest quality products.

Zahid Tractor is a member of Zahid Group, a privately held organization representing a diverse range of companies, strategic partnerships, and world-renowned brands. Head quartered in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, the Group is led by an established family whose commercial roots date back over a century.
