Bin Quraya Rental receives delivery of Genie boom lifts
Saudi Arabian heavy equipment rental company, Bin Quraya, a company member of the Bin Quraya Group, invested in 10 40m Genie Xtra Capacity (XC) boom lifts, to seek the right access solution to support the needs of petrol project specialist customer, Aramco.
The machines were supplied by Saudi Arabianbased authorised Genie Distributors, Middle East Development Co. (Medco).
For Aramco’s steel erectors, electricians, welders, pipe and millwright fitters, whose work involves the use of heavy tools and materials, these heavier capacity machines will provide the ability to work more efficiently and productively. All the 10 SX-125 XC booms were delivered this January.
Hamad Bin Quraya said: “When we invest, we are looking for equipment with an excellent reputation in the market backed by a local distributor that understands our needs, that we can consider as a true business partner. With Genie and Medco, we have both. In addition to the reliability and quality that these products are known for, Medco has a great track record for its holistic vision of after-sales service.”
Genie Xtra Capacity booms are designed to work in applications that require higher capacities. Like all models of the Genie XC family, the Genie SX-125 XC boom features a dual envelope design offering an unrestricted platform capacity of 300kg and a restricted capacity of 454kg.
Gary Cooke, Genie regional sales manager, Terex AWP, for the Middle East at Terex Equipment Middle East, said: “Offering a third more capacity than standard, our XC booms combine the latest new generation technologies to raise more people, more tools and more materials to increase productivity, and make work in applications that require higher capacities faster and easier.
“Even though Bin Quraya’s Genie SX-125 XC booms are painted orange, which is the company’s corporate colour, they are still Genie blue at heart! This implies that they are engineered to support our customers’ business by keeping their cost of ownership low, which is exactly what forwardlooking companies like Bin Quraya are looking for.”
