January 2018

Yusuf Bin Ahmed Kanoo Group and Hyster have successfully completed over five decades of partnership in Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

Senior officials from Yusuf Bin Ahmed Kanoo Group and Hyster recently met in Bahrain to discuss their exclusive 57-year partnership in the three GCC countires.

The management teams discussed future plans, ranging from providing tough trucks, materials handling and port operations in the UAE.

“This meeting will enhance the relationship and strengthen co-operation between our two corporations, we believe we will be able to build stronger relations on the foundation we have laid out together over the last 57 years. Our partnership with Hyster has always been a competitive and profitable endeavour and we strive to always supply top-quality machinery to the region,” YBA Kanoo Group CEO Patrick Chenel said.

Established for more than 125 years, covering Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Oman, YBA Kanoo started as a trading and shipping enterprise. It later successfully branched into construction and materials handling equipment supply, becoming part of the global network of trusted Hyster distribution partners. Hyster is one of the leading global brands of materials handling equipment, offering over 140 models of counterbalance, warehouse and container handling trucks.

“Hyster and YBA Kanoo Group have benefitted from a strong partnership for more than half a century,” said Hyster-Yale Group Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) managing director Harry Sands.

YBA Kanoo Group provides support for Hyster trucks anywhere in the Gulf, minimising downtime. Earlier this year, YBA Kanoo Group and Hyster collaborated on the launch of the new Hyster RS45 ReachStacker. YBA Kanoo Group revealed the new truck, which is available exclusively to customers with Stage IIIA/Tier 3 emissions regulations, to its customers at a special event at the Meydan Racecourse in Dubai.
