The deal means that Martin Engineering's range of products - which can help companies to achieve excellent productivity and efficiency - are available for the first time in the UAE. The products are exclusively supplied, installed and maintained by German Conveyor's local team of specialists.
With a team of 150 people, German Conveyor - part of Quarry Mining - designs, manufactures, installs and maintains bulk handling systems, processing plants and environmental technologies in the UAE minerals and mining sector.
Martin Engineering is present in more than 20 countries across six continents, supplying conveyor belt cleaners, air cannons and associated parts to attain cleaner, safer, more effective and sustainable processing. The company's products can help to eliminate blockages, prevent spillage and reduce airborne material.
Teams from Martin Engineering offices in Germany, Turkey, South Africa and the UK have been working alongside colleagues from German Conveyor to develop an extensive product offering and year-round, rapid-response service. The new partnership has already given rise to a number of opportunities with materials producers in the UAE.
Robert Whetstone, Martin Engineering's area vice president, commented: "Our colleagues at German Conveyor have decades of experience and expertise, with an excellent understanding of the expanding UAE industrial sector. They are a highly dedicated and professional team, and I am confident of a successful and long-term partnership."
Moritz Kerler, owner of German Conveyor Industries, said: "We are delighted to be launching this partnership to bring world-class products from Martin Engineering into UAE. Martin Engineering has unrivalled experience solving problems in bulk handling systems, and their unique Foundations training programmes and manuals enable us to share that knowledge with customers.
"We are particularly excited about introducing products such as Martin Engineering's pioneering CleanScrape conveyor belt cleaning system - the only product of its kind on the market - and its range of flow aid solutions that are proven to reduce downtime and improve productivity. In addition to benefiting our existing customers, our partnership gives us the opportunity to enter new market sectors in UAE."
