Thor Middle East L.L.C, is the regional importer and distributor for Hiab, responsible for sales, parts & service support for countries in the Gulf Cooperation Council states (UAE, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and Saudi Arabia).

Thor Middle East will continue to operate as an independent company and being part of the large Al Shirawi group of companies will give HIAB loader cranes, MULTILIFT demountables, ZEPRO tail lifts, JONSERED recycling cranes and LOGLIFT forestry cranes the deserved visibility and support across the Middle East and looks forward to further growth of market share and volume.

For this reason we are very happy to continue to work with Thor Middle East and look forward to developing a strong partnership with the Al Shirawi Group,” says Henrik Wittgren, Regional Business Manager at Hiab.

He continues “During the recent years our products have become more sophisticated with advanced digital solutions and services. The area is slowly changing from basic, non CE marked, product needs to more advanced solutions including our digital offering. We are convinced that Thor Middle East and Al Shirawi have what it takes to support our customers throughout this journey and continue to develop their competencies further.”
