TOWERS ON ORDER
04 March 2008
Dubai-based NFT has ordered more than 200 Potain tower cranes to help meet demand in the Middle East market. The company is a longstanding Potain dealer and operates the largest Potain rental fleet in the Middle East, according to Potain parent company Manitowoc.
Nabil Al Zahlawi, NFT managing director, said the investment was part of his company's long-term strategy. “We are expecting the growth in this market to continue for at least the next five years and there is still a high demand for cranes. We have made Potain a market leader here not only because it is the best product on the market, but also by having the cranes available when contractors need them. This order will help us maintain that position.”
NFT has already sold most of the cranes in the order. They will go to a range of projects including the Dubai Waterfront site where there are plans to build a 1,001 m tall tower.
