Johnson Arabia opens in Muscat and expands RTC fleet

Company invests in new Grove rough terrain cranes, spider cranes, AWPs and IPAF training locations with oil & gas and infrastructure sectors in mind

Johnson Arabia is looking to enhance its services and business this year with expansions in its aerial work platforms fleet, opening a second branch in Muscat, Oman, and inducting new 100t capacity models into its rough terrain crane (RTC) fleet

The Dubai-based equipment rental major said the investment was made “keeping in mind the growth of the oil & gas sector and other infrastructure projects in the UAE and so far the Grove 8100 RTCs cranes have had full utility as soon as they arrived”. From oil fields to government projects in Fujairah these new Groves are fully occupied, added Johnson Arabia.

A statement from the company said: “As 2021 picks up, Johnson Arabia navigates successfully out of the market dip of 2020 and Covid-18 through internal market research and sales records. Our preliminary evaluation of the first quarter projects shows us a good rise in all sectors overall, especially oil & gas and infrastructure. This seems likely because the UAE is all geared up to host Expo 2020 and more tourists this year as a Covid-safe country.”

The company has also expanded its fleet of spider cranes with more models in response to the growing demand in projects with space constraints, like the various pavilions at Dubai Expo 2020, mall refurbishments and extensions, and even glass and glazing works for buildings. “We are also happy that this market is picking up on the advantages of these small but powerful lifters and seeing the potential for more in the future,” said the company.

Further, on the AWP side, Johnson Arabia has also opened a new IPAF training centre in Abu Dhabi. ”Prior to Covid-19 it was very easy to shuttle trainees to and from Abu Dhabi but there was a gap in the market for easily accessible IPAF training in the Abu Dhabi region and Johnson Arabia came through to help. Training in Abu Dhabi is scheduled weekly and in safe numbers with adherence to Covid guidelines. The smaller batches benefit trainees with more opportunities for individual questions and learning.”
