Specialising in providing crane and heavy haulage services to the industrial sector throughout the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, AMHEC purchased the record number of all-terrain cranes because of its “many years of positive experience” with Liebherr’s mobile cranes, according to Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Abdullah Al-Suwaiket.

“We are proud to be able to supply AMHEC with this number of cranes,” he said. “Since 1983, Liebherr has consistently demonstrated to its customers in Saudi Arabia its reliability as a partner.

“This track record is the foundation upon which customers, including AMHEC, rely, and extend the partnership further.”

AMHEC’s 55 new cranes nearly spans across Liebherr’s entire range of mobile cranes. Placing the order in December 2023, the company decided to purchase cranes of the LTM 1100-5.3, LTM 1110-5.2, LTM 1160-5.2, LTM 1230-5.1, LTM 1250-5.1, LTM 1300-6.3, LTM 1450-8.1, LTM 1650-8.1, and LTM 1750-9.1 varieties to complement its existing fleet ranging from 50 tonnes through to 500 tonnes. The acquisition of the 700 and 800-tonne mobile cranes, however, will see AMHEC expand its operations drastically and be able to fulfil a wider range of jobs for customers.


“We serve a wide variety of tasks in Saudi Arabia,” said Al-Suwaiket. “We depend on and trust in the reliable, high-quality medium-sized and large cranes from Liebherr.”

The first all-terrain cranes from this order will arrive in the Kingdom in a few months, bringing the company’s crane fleet to a total of more than 400 cranes.
