It has invested over 80 million DHS (£17m) into its production capacity, which houses one of the most technologically advanced interlock factories operating today. Since 1977 Arabian Germany has been the premium force behind the road networks in the UAE, supplying various specially designed concrete products throughout the Emirates. The factories at Arabian Germany operate 24 hours a day with production, dispatch and store keeping functioning around the clock.

To ensure that the company is running at its maximum efficiently levels, Arabian Germany contacted B&B Attachments to support its ever increasing material handling requirements. B&B Attachments is one of the leading forklift truck attachment companies in the UK and Ireland. Its factory, based in North East England, specialise in the design and manufacture of bespoke forklift truck attachment solutions, creating products for customers with specific material handling requirements.

It is vital that we handle our full range of products in the safest and most efficient way, eliminating the risk of any damage to the concrete.
