How we started

         During his 30 years in the field repairing Grove cranes, Abdel Athmani, owner and founder of Manitowoc dealer Arabian Crane Services, has held to his philosophie of superior customer service. "When a customer is down in the field it is not only an inconvenience, but a financial loss" he said. "That's why we are commited to getting customers up and running very quickly and most times that is within 24 hours".

               This commitment reflects Athmani's passion for Grove cranes. His association with the brand began in 1982 when he was employed by Coles Crane (which was eventually acquired by Grove in 1984) as a service engineer in Algeria.He traveled troughout the country commissioning and repairing cranes that were working in construction, railway and oil applications

                In 1999, Athmani moved to the sultanate of Oman on the Arabian Peninsula and began a Grove dealership himself - Arabian Crane Services. The company got its start by refurbishing Grove cranes for companies working in the oil industry and ministry of defense. Since then, Arabian Crane Services has expanded greatly.

Core Values

                  The heart of the Arabian Crane Services operation is still extensive repair and refurbishment work. The company employs over a dozen mechanics, electricians and welders and does a lot of modernisation work on mobile cranes that have been working in the oil fields for years.This includes inspecting all critical components and structural parts, as well as installing modern, emission-compliant engines and also safety systems. All of the crane's wiring is checked over and repaired to original standards. In addition, the Arabian Crane Services workshop is equipped to fabricate and overhaul wire line trucks, fitted with National Crane boom trucks. According to Athmani, these cranes are essential tools in oil well operations and require specialist adjustment.
