Tana Engineering is partnering with Saeed Mohammed Al Ghandi to provide technical support to the latter’s dealership in Ethiopia for CASE Construction and Golden Dragon vehicles. Saeed Mohammed Al Ghandi (SMAG), part of the Al Ghandi Auto Group headquartered in the United Arab Emirates, is an automotive and construction equipment dealer representing some of the most renowned international manufacturers.
After an official launch event held in December 2016 at the Marriot Apartments Addis Ababa, which was attended by delegates from government agencies such as the Ethiopian Roads Authority, contractors, bus companies and other stakeholders, SMAG has commenced supply and commercial support services for CASE Construction equipment and Golden Dragon Buses in Ethiopia. Graham Turner, CEO of SMAG said at the launching ceremony, “The rising GDP, untapped resources, infrastructure and demand for construction equipment is enough evidence to suggest that Ethiopia is heading in the right direction for economic growth.”
Building on its decades-long experience of partnering with global suppliers, Tana Engineering will be providing technical support to the CASE and Golden Dragon fleet in Ethiopia at its Kality workshop using advanced technologies and expert workmanship. Commenting on the partnership, Ambra Del Gaudio, Deputy General Manager of Tana Engineering PLC said, “We have known the Al Ghandi Group for a long time and it is a pleasure to now be partnering with them. With their 50 years of experience and our 60 years of experience in the automotive and machinery industry, I have no doubt we will have a complementary partnership that will result in delightful customer service for our clients.”
