Al-Bahar today announced the delivery of thirty-five units of Cat® DP30NT Forklifts along with exclusive Support Bundle to Danube Building Materials FZCO, enabling their building materials supply operations extensively. The new fleet of forklifts will enable Danube to carry out warehousing functionalities efficiently, at their facilities across UAE, including Dubai, Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah, Abu Dhabi, and Fujairah.

Danube Building Materials is the region’s leading building materials supply, providing comprehensive solutions. They offer more than 25,000 products and value-added services. Their warehouses stock plywood, MDF, Nouveau Surfaces, Exotic Timber, Laminates, Veneer, Kitchens & Bath Fittings, Acustica, Tiles, Steel, Adhesives, and much more. The sheer variety of material stocked, demanded high levels of versatility, from the warehousing equipment, in addition to performance, durability and dependable support. For their kind of operations, they needed machines that assured high capacity engines, higher lifting height, and superior performance.

Having tried and tested Cat Lift Trucks through the Cat Rental Store for more than a decade, Danube was assured of the benefits of Cat Forklifts and the cost-effectiveness promised by them. Relying on the continuous relationship with Al-Bahar, they choose 35 units of Cat DP30NT Forklifts for their warehouses, after multiple rounds of consultations and considerations. The transition from rental to newly purchased equipment was smooth since the operators were previously experienced having used rental Cat Lift Trucks.

Of the various materials handling equipment we offer, DP30 was ideal for Danube’s kind of requirement.”

“Along with high lifting height and engine capacity, the DP30 offers a detailed dashboard. It comes with Hydrostatic steering for increased productivity.  Moreover, advanced engine powered technology offers the level of performance necessary to meet the requirements of modern business”, he added.

With a relationship that is a decade old, Danube’s relationship with Al-Bahar, is a long one. Highlighting the enriching relationship, T. Madhusudhan Rao, CEO, Danube, quoted, “The value of Cat® brand was known to us, as we have been using Cat Rental Forklifts for over 10 years. Moreover, we were happy with the excellent dealer support from Al-Bahar, including the availability of parts across the region. Hence, we had no second thoughts when we were to purchase forklifts for operations across our branches.”

“We rely on Cat Forklifts for the durability & reliability they promise. Higher engine capacity and lifting height were among the other highlights, Cat Forklifts provided us. We see the association as a win-win, and are looking forward to benefiting from this relationship,” quoted Sultan Ibrahim, Fleet Manager, Danube.

Moreover, Cat Lift Trucks are not new to Danube, since they have been using them for a while as rental solutions. However, we at Al-Bahar are looking forward to assisting them to achieve more, with their new Cat lift truck fleet,” concluded Mutair.
