SDLG rolls out significant 58 machine order in Saudi Arabia

SDLG dealer FAMCO has put the first units on the ground after it won a significant order to supply 58 machines to the Shibh Al-Jazira Contracting Company in Saudi Arabia.

The first units of a substantial 58-machine order from Saudi Arabian contractor Shibh Al-Jazira Contracting Company have been delivered by SDLG regional dealer FAMCO (Al-Futtaim Auto and Machinery Company).
The order – consisting of 30 SDLG LG958 wheel loaders and 28 SDLG G9220 motor graders – was signed earlier in the year, amid fierce competition from Chinese and Western equipment suppliers in Saudi Arabia.
“There are several reasons why we won this deal,” says Essam Al-Malik, central regional manager at FAMCO. “These include our ability to deliver the machines to the customer’s precise requirements, SDLG and FAMCO’s combined ability to carry out exceptional customer support and after sales service, and our short lead time for delivery.”
Mohammed Al-Nahas, senior technical advisor at Shibh Al-Jazira, said: “We are very happy to have selected SDLG. The brand offers high quality products with great specifications; they definitely meet our projects requirements.”

Established in 1965, Shib Al-Jazira is one of the largest contractors in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and operates a fleet of over 1,500 machines. From its six locations – in Qassim, Khobar, Medina, Jeddah, Abha, and Riyadh – it is currently involved in delivering over 40 ‘mega projects’ in the Kingdom.
SDLG will roll out Tier 4 Final wheel loaders across North America beginning this spring. The new machines are upgraded to meet emissions regulations standards in the U.S. and Canada. All four models that are currently for sale in the region are being replaced with a Tier 4 Final version.
Motasim Abulhasan, SDLG central region sales manager at FAMCO, concludes: “The machines will now be distributed throughout 20 different cities in Saudi Arabia for a large-scale highway maintenance project.”
