The establishment of a partnership with German Conveyor Industries LLC has seen US-based Martin Engineering make its debut in the Middle East market.
Part of Quarry Mining LLC, UAE-based German Conveyor employs a skilled team of 150 people. The firm designs, manufactures, installs and maintains bulk handling systems, processing plants and environmental technologies in the UAE minerals and mining sector.
The deal means that Martin Engineering’s range of products is available for the first time in UAE. The products are exclusively supplied, installed and maintained by German Conveyor’s local team of specialists. Martin said that 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,” 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, expressed “delight” that the partnership was being launched. “Martin Engineering has unrivalled experience solving problems in bulk handling systems, and their unique Foundations training programs 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 its range of low 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 UAE.”
