Martin Engineering enter the Middle East
Bulk-handling equipment specialist enters the UAE market by forging partnership with German Conveyor Industries
GLOBAL bulk-handling equipment specialists Martin Engineering have entered the Middle East market by forging a partnership with German Conveyor Industries LLC, experts in the design, installation and maintenance of industrial plants in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
The deal means that the Martin Engineering range of products will be available for the first time in the UAE and exclusively supplied, installed and maintained by German Conveyor’s local team of specialists.
With a team of 150 people, German Conveyor – part of Quarry Mining LLC – design, manufacture, install and maintain bulk-handling systems, processing plants and environmental technologies in the UAE minerals and mining sector.
Martin Engineering, who are present in more than 20 countries across six continents, supply conveyor belt cleaners, air cannons and associated parts to attain cleaner, safer, more effective and sustainable processing by helping to eliminate blockages, prevent spillage and reduce airborne material.
Teams from Martin Engineering offices in Germany, Turkey, South Africa and the UK have been working alongside colleagues from German Conveyor to develop an extensive product offering and year-round, rapid-response service.
‘Our colleagues at German Conveyor have decades of experience and expertise, with an excellent understanding of the expanding UAE industrial sector,’ commented Robert Whetstone, Martin Engineering’s area vice-president. ‘They are a highly dedicated and professional team, and I am confident of a successful and long-term partnership.’
Moritz Kerler, owner of German Conveyor Industries LLC, said: ‘We are delighted to be launching this partnership to bring world-class products from Martin Engineering into the UAE. Martin Engineering have unrivalled experience solving problems in bulk-handling systems, and their unique Foundations training programmes and manuals enable us to share that knowledge with customers.
‘We are particularly excited about introducing products such as Martin Engineering’s pioneering CleanScrape conveyor belt cleaning system – the only product of its kind on the market – and their range of flow aid solutions that are proven to reduce downtime and improve productivity. In addition to benefiting our existing customers, our partnership gives us the opportunity to enter new market sectors in the UAE.’
