Jallad Group is one of the Middle East’s best-known names in construction equipment sales and service and will represent Lintec & Linnhoff through its local subsidiaries: Jordan Tractor & Equipment (Jordan) , M. Ezzat Jallad (Lebanon), and Palestinian Tractors & Equipment (Palestine).

The Middle East distribution agreement comes just a few weeks after Lintec & Linnhoff announced the delivery of a landmark unit in the region, the first Eurotec 4ECO120T model in the United Arab Emirates. The plant is the largest model in the Eurotec ECO range, and Lintec & Linnhoff says the deal reflects the ongoing high demand for concrete in the region.

The Jallad Group has its headquarters in Lebanon but also has offices across the region, including in Jordan and Palestine. It has a 300-strong workforce and an established presence in the Middle East. Lintec & Linnhoff’s brands will now sit alongside other major names from the construction equipment industry in the Jallad Group’s portfolio including Caterpillar, Terex Finlay, John Deere and Legrand.

Khaled Seifeldin, sales Manager at the Jallad Group, said Lintec & Linnhoff products are a natural fit with the company’s other equipment brands.

"The technology and intelligent design of the concrete and asphalt plants offers contractors a serious advantage on projects," he added. "These are high quality, reliable and efficient plants that we believe will be a popular choice for customers. We have already had productive discussions with many companies and hope to be making our first deliveries soon.
The Jallad Group will represent the full line up of Lintec, Linnhoff and Eurotec machines. Interest is expected to focus on concrete batching plants initially, given the high levels of demand across the Middle East, but over time the company also expects to develop sales of its asphalt plants in the market.

Tony Chakra, regional sales manager for Lintec & Linnhoff (Middle East and Africa), said the arrangement with the Jallad Group marks the beginning of an exciting new era for the company in Lebanon, Jordan and Palestine.

"We are entirely committed to growing our business across the Middle East, so this partnership with the Jallad Group for Lebanon, Jordan and Palestine is an important step for us," said Chakra. "The Jallad Group is a highly respected and well-established name here, with a reputation for quality and service."
