Genie authorised dealer Medco has begun delivery of 135 Genie boom and scissor lifts purchased by Al Majal Al Arabi for facility maintenance on holy mosques at Makkah and Madinah in Saudi Arabia.

The order includes Genie S-60 J and S-80 J telescopic boom lifts, which will be used for external facade and general offsite maintenance, GS E-Drive scissor lifts for indoor maintenance, and electric Z-60 DC articulating boom lifts for use in general facility management and cleaning tasks.

“Medco is proud to be the first supplier of Genie equipment to the two holy mosques in Makkah and Madinah,” said Emad Mukhalalaty, general manager for Medco Saudi Arabia.

“This is one of the most prestigious and demanding projects that Medco had won in recent years, and we feel that serving the holy mosques is not only a duty and responsibility, but an honor that we value and shall provide for.”

Genie says that each piece of equipment has features that make them the right lift for specific tasks at heritage sites. For example, the S-60 J and S-80 J telescopic boom lifts are lighter than comparable booms in their class, making them ideal for work on sensitive surfaces, while the Z-60 DC articulating boom lifts provide up-and-over access for accessing hard-to-reach areas. 

In addition, Genie GS E-Drive scissor lifts are said to give Medco’s customer Al Majal Al Arabi the ability to work indoors or outdoors. The efficient, low-maintenance electric scissor lifts also are said to be easy to manoeuvre and boost job site productivity.
