Mammoet strengthens Saudi presence

Mammoet has strengthened its presence in Saudi Arabia with the opening of an operational hub in the city of Al Jubail.


The new facility, which consists of an office building and a 20,000 sq m yard, will enable Mammoet to accelerate its growth in the region and accommodate the increase of equipment and personnel.

The larger yard will allow for in-house maintenance and repair of the equipment fleet, said Mammoet, adding that it plans to expand its fleet with conventional trailer axles, SPMTs and hydraulic cranes ranging in capacity from 60 tons (54.4 tonnes) to 500 tons (453.6 tonnes).

Darren Bland, general manager of Mammoet’s Saudi Arabia operations, said: “We are concentrating on our expansion in the region and the office is strategically placed closer to our customers to further develop relations, reinforcing our emphasis on service, accessibility and providing quality solutions at all times.”

The new office, according to Bland, will allow Mammoet to support the Kingdom's Vision 2030 with engineered heavy lift and transport services.
