Abdul Latif Mohammed, the man responsible at Kanoo Machinery for the aerial lift rental business in Saudi Arabia is retiring.

Mr Mohammed joined Kanoo 27 years ago and in 1996, Kanoo selected him to start its equipment rental arm, Gulf Lifting Rental Company (GLRC), based in the Saudi city of Dammam. Over the past 15 years, Mr Mohammed has achieved more than a 40-fold increase in revenues.

In 2007, Mr Mohammed was given management of the major fork lift truck rental contract with Saudi Aramco and two years later he also took over the even larger crane rental contract with the same customer.

Kanoo is Snorkel's distributor in Saudi Arabia and Mick Wright, Snorkel's regional sales director for the Middle East and Africa, said, "I have had the pleasure of working with Latif for the past five years, supplying UpRight lifts to the GLRC fleet. He is a true gentleman, has a shrewd business brain and will be greatly missed by all of us at Snorkel."
