By: Stian Overdahl
Kanoo Machinery has won a long-term supply contract with DP World, which includes a bulk supply of Hyster lift truck spare parts.
The deal means that DP World does not have to keep any inventory of spare parts for its Hyster machines, which instead will be held by Kanoo Machinery on its premises. If parts are required, these will be made available at any time, night or day.
Nabil Qayed, technical director, Jamal Ahmed Al Kindi, manager-materials management, and other procurement officials of DP World attended a signing event, in the presence of management members of The Kanoo Group and Kanoo Machinery.
During the ceremony, Mishal Kanoo stated that The Kanoo Group was privileged to be associated with DP World, and expressed hope that the partnership would help make DP World become more successful.
“I would like to thank Kanoo Machinery for their initiative, walking the extra mile with DP World in bringing this business relationship from customers’ to partners’ level," said Al Kindi.
"This consignment of spare parts wouldn’t come to reality if not for their efforts and also in believing in DP World as a successful international company representing Dubai and the UAE."
Shakil Merchant, divisional sales manager, UAE of Kanoo Machinery, said: "Kanoo Machinery had been looking forward to this day and we have been working hard for a long time to achieve this. At last this deal has come true and is a good association of the business with the consignment stock keeping in DP World."
Recently Kanoo Machinery received DP World's Top Vendor Award for 2012.
