The Dutch family company Groeneveld Lubrication Solutions, specialized in high-end automatic lubrication and oil management systems, as well as safety support devices, has appointed World Crane Services (WCS) in Dubai (United Arab Emirates) as a service dealer, specific for Port Equipment. WCS will play an important role in servicing Groeneveld products in the Port Equipment segment in this important region, where the company sees a growing demand for automatic lubrication and safety systems. Located in the Jebel Ali Free Zone in Dubai, WCS’ portfolio continues to expand since its establishment in 2002 and has become well known in the Middle-Eastern region. With their experienced service team WCS is a solid partner for Groeneveld and its customers in the region.

Solid partnership

“We are very excited about our appointment. For many years already, we’re active in servicing a wide range of container handling equipment, from spreaders up to cranes. Our services range from design review up to turnkey engineering project management. We see that the automatic lubrication systems of Groeneveld play a role of growing importance in the ports sector. More and more port operators see the huge benefits of the systems.” States Mr. Ayman Eldawi General Manager of WCS, “Our staff will be trained by Groeneveld personnel. Afterwards our experienced service technicians will be able to install and service the Groeneveld systems perfectly, a guarantee for yearlong trouble free operation.”

High-end products and class leading service

“At Groeneveld we know that our job isn’t done at the moment the ordered goods are received by our customer. Our aim is to provide a total solution, from the quote up to service years after the purchase. Installations and servicing are done by our local subsidiaries or official (service) dealers. WCS will cover Dubai and the surrounding areas for us. They will take care of all the port related installations and service that needs to be done in that area. With their experienced service team WCS is a solid partner for Groeneveld and its customers in the region.” Johan Bood, Sales Director Port Applications adds.
