“Our export department is expanding its wings and has started developing new business in Asia and Africa as well. The deal for Bobcat telehandlers with Pexi Gulf is a result of our team’s hard work to make inroads into newer markets,” says Mr. Mohammed Al Hashimi Regional Manager – Export of Kanoo Machinery.
Pexi Gulf is leading supplier of vehicles, equipment and parts to government agencies as well as private contractors across the globe. Their portfolio ranges from supplying heavy machinery, trucks and equipment to mining and construction projects from places like the sub-Saharan Africa to the Caribbean.
“We are happy Pexi Gulf chose to go with Bobcat for their requirements.

We are confident Pexi Gulf’s customers in Asia will be satisfied with the speed and efficiency of these world-class machines,” adds Mr. Al Hashimi
Bobcat telehandler, a multi-purpose utility machine that combines the speed, agility and strength of a skid-steer loader with the extended reach of a forklift, is designed to handle the customer’s toughest jobs effortlessly and efficiently. Bobcat telehandlers use advanced technology providing optimum performance and manoeuvrability and a host of other advantages. Bobcat telehandlers offer excellent visibility, which is especially beneficial when operating forwards for picking up equipment, upwards for positioning at maximum height, all-round for manoeuvring and backwards for safety. Kanoo Machinery will be offering the customer after-sales support, maintenance and training on operating the new Bobcat telehandlers.
