In line with expansion plans throughout the Middle East region, FAMCO (Al-Futtaim Auto & Machinery Co), the Al-Futtaim Group’s distributor of commercial vehicles, construction and industrial equipment, today announced the launch of a new branch in Muscat, the capital of Sultanate of Oman.
The branch was inaugurated at a grand ceremony in the Grand Hyatt Hotel, Muscat attended by leading industry executives from Oman’s industrial and logistics sectors.
Paul Floyd, Managing Director, FAMCO said: “We take pride in working closely with fleet operators, providing high levels of customer service and expert advice. Now we can bring these qualities to the Omani market where we believe we have much to offer. Oman’s vision to invest in its infrastructure has heightened construction activity in the country and our aim is to set a new benchmark here and be part of this exciting vision. Thanks to our new facility in Muscat, and our highly qualified team, we very much look forward to the opportunity of developing our operations in Oman.”
FAMCO Oman will distribute leading brands such as Linde material handling equipment, Merlo telescopic handlers, Ingersoll-Rand industrial air compressors, MASE marine generators, Hart & Nassau industrial doors, Stertil docking systems, and Bott workshop and in-vehicle storage solutions.
The company is known in the UAE and the region for its customer focused approach and for the strong support it provides through its service and parts network. It has bases in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and Ras Al Khaimah, and in 2011 started operations in Saudi Arabia, Oman and Qatar.
Floyd added: “Customer support is a key focus for FAMCO which already has an enviable reputation in the region, but this has come solely from its development in the UAE. Now the company has an opportunity to take its excellent standards to new audiences.”
