Lintec & Linnhoff has revitalized its operations in the Middle East in recent years, with new distributor partners and a new local leadership team offering customers a vastly improved sales and service experience. The company’s investment in the region has been steadily paying dividends, the latest example of which is the first delivery of a Eurotec 4ECO120T model in the United Arab Emirates.
The sale is also notable because the plant is the largest model in the popular ECO range, underlining the ongoing high demand for concrete in the Middle East. The UAE is home to other high-capacity units from Lintec & Linnhoff, including a powerful Eurotec MZ6750Ti model, stationery concrete batching plant with an impressive 200 m3/hr output.
Tony Chakra, Area Sales Manager for Lintec & Linnhoff (Middle East and North Africa), said he was delighted with the delivery of the first Eurotec 4ECO120T model in the UAE, even more so as the deal was concluded entirely online:
“It is very unusual for a machine of this scale to be sold entirely online, but with today’s communication technology especially in the current climate, we were able to successfully perform the entire transaction virtually,” he said. “Usually, we would host the customer at a jobsite to view a similar plant in action and also conduct several face-to-face meetings. However, with the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions this was just not possible. Nevertheless, the customer is happy with everything so far and we will be providing comprehensive local support to ensure the customer enjoys the productivity benefits of the Eurotec ECO range right from the start.”
The Eurotec 4ECO120T model is an ideal design for the Middle East, with its high-capacity output, galvanised steel structures, and reliable componentry from European brands. Design features include a Europe-built Twin-Shaft Mixer and cumulative aggregate weighing & batching sequence which help the unit achieve a rated capacity output of 120 m3 of concrete per hour with 3 m3 output per batch.
The plant is the flagship of the Eurotec ECO series, which offers affordable simple and functional concrete production solutions and are ideal for customers requiring an economical batching plant which can simultaneously deliver a large quantity of high-quality concrete. All its weighing systems are metered via load cells and managed through Eurotec’s unique, proprietary ECS process control system software which runs on a user-friendly Windows OS for fully automatic operations.
Tony Chakra said the addition of the Eurotec plant will help the Abu Dhabi-based concrete ready-mix supplier better serve its local customer base.
“We continue to see growing demand for building materials across the Middle East, so the addition of the Eurotec 4ECO120T model will help the customer increase its capacity,”
he said. “This new Eurotec installation is the first of its type in the UAE and will give the company a competitive advantage through its high-volume efficient production. As Abu Dhabi’s commercial sector continues to grow the customer is now well-positioned to play an important part in driving the ongoing success of the UAE.”
Lintec & Linnhoff has a long history in the UAE stretching back decades and an established fleet of around 20 Lintec, Linnhoff and Eurotec asphalt and concrete plants spread across several customers. With new regional leadership and a revitalised sales organisation, the company is ready to kickstart a new era in its local history.
“Although we have rebooted our presence in the Middle East, we are not new here and in fact have a long-standing history. We understand the needs of customers and we have the infrastructure to support them. With our new market presence combined with our proven track record of strong technical support we believe Lintec & Linnhoff has a very bright future in the Middle East,” concluded Tony Chakra.
