A global leader in bulk handling equipment, Martin Engineering has entered the Middle Eastern market by forging a partnership with German Conveyor Industries LLC. This latter company is the UAE’s experts in the design, installation, and maintenance of industrial plants.
The deal means that Martin Engineering’s range of products, which help companies to achieve productivity and efficiency, are available for the first time in the UAE. The products are exclusively supplied, installed, and maintained by German Conveyor’s local team of specialists.
Part of Quarry Mining LLC, German Conveyor has a highly skilled and motivated team of 150 people. It designs, manufactures, installs, and maintains bulk handling systems, processing plants, and environmental technologies in the UAE minerals and mining sector. Martin Engineering is present in more than 20 countries across six continents, supplying innovative conveyor belt cleaners, market-leading air cannons, and associated parts to attain cleaner, safer, more effective, and sustainable processing. The company’s products help to eliminate blockages, prevent spillage, and reduce airborne material.
To develop an extensive product offering and year round rapid response service, teams from Martin Engineering offices in Germany, Turkey, South Africa, and the UK have been working alongside colleagues from German Conveyor. The new partnership has already given rise to a number of opportunities with materials producers in UAE.
“Our colleagues at German Conveyor have decades of experience and expertise, with an excellent understanding of the expanding UAE industrial sector,” said Robert Whetstone, Area Vice President at Martin Engineering. “They are a highly dedicated and professional team and I am confident of a successful and long-term partnership.”
“We are delighted to be launching this partnership to bring world-class products from Martin Engineering into UAE,” said Moritz Kerler, Owner of German Conveyor Industries. “Martin Engineering has unrivalled experience in 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 and its range of flow aid solutions, which are proven to reduce downtime and improve productivity. In addition to benefitting our existing customers, our partnership gives us the opportunity to enter new market sectors in UAE.”
