Abdul Latif Jameel Machinery’s materials handling arm, has opened its first sales, service and spare parts (3S) showroom in a ceremony attended by the Vice President of Sales and Marketing of Toyota Material Handling International, Yoichiro Yamazaki.

The Jeddah facility, which was opened in July 2017, aims to sell 600 units per year through its 11-strong sales team.  As a sign of its early success, 39 towing tractors were delivered to Saudi Airlines in September.

It also provides a spare parts delivery service stretching from Tabouk to Al Qonfozah, and operates 10 mobile workshops.

Abdulrazig Eltayeb, Acting Director of Abdul Latif Jameel Industrial Equipment, is keen to drive forward with further developments in the coming years.  In 2018, the Jeddah facility will expand its range of electric vehicles, and roll-out a long and short rental service across its full range of vehicles.  It also aims to offer a range of used forklift trucks by 2020.
