MAN Truck & Bus Showcases its superior products and spare parts range at Sohar Heavyex 2016 exhibition

MAN Truck & Bus announced its participation in the recently concluded Sohar Heavyex 2016 exhibition which took place at the Oman International Exhibition Centre Wilayat Sohar

This trade exhibition was the first such exhibition in Sohar for building material, transport, heavy equipment, loading & offloading, storage and logistic services. MAN participated in the exhibition with its distributor Arabian Engineering Services LLC which is part of the Saud Bahwan Group.

At the exhibition, MAN showcased its MAN TGS 6x4 truck along with a range of genuine MAN spare parts such as batteries, air filters, oil filters, fuel filters etc. The robust TGS truck is able to carry very heavy loads and has been specially developed by MAN for use in regions like the Middle East. The truck copes safely and easily with even the most difficult road and extreme weather conditions such as sweltering heat. Whether as a semitrailer tractor, chassis or tipper, the truck is perfectly suited to use in the harshest conditions and in difficult long-haul transport projects. The vehicle configuration of the MAN TGS 6x4 can be optimally adapted to particular geographical requirements. As an efficient commercial vehicle for driving on the roads during short- and long-haul transport, MAN offers two-, three- and four-axle semitrailer tractors and chassis with permissible gross weights of up to 50 tonnes.

Franz von Redwitz, Managing Director of MAN Truck & Bus Middle East said: “The Sohar Heavyex 2016 exhibition provided us with a good opportunity to showcase our proven credentials as a leading commercial vehicle manufacturer for the construction and logistics industries. Moreover, considering the infrastructure development in the country, we feel there is a lot of scope for MAN to contribute to the sector with our proven expertise.”

Mr. Redwitz added, “The exhibition was especially relevant for us since we wanted to engage with our customer base in Sohar which is an established industrial hub. Many transport operators now have a significant presence here since the shift of commercial activities from Port Sultan Qaboos, Muscat to Port Sohar.”
