MANAMA: AMA Motors' participation in the gulfBID exhibition last year convinced the company that it should add Gulf Industry Fair to its schedule.
The company, part of the Ahmed Mansoor Al A'Ali Group, booked up for this year's event with both a major stand in the exhibition and a strong presence in the new outdoor display area at the event.
"For us gulfBID was fantastic and so we decided to sign up for Hilal Conferences and Exhibitions' other major industrial event," said AMA general manager Simon Keen.
"The gulfBID exhibition far exceeded our expectations and we have the same positive feel about Gulf Industry Fair.
"This is a good time to be participating because there are now clear signs that the economy is picking up again.
"We are in the construction and transportation business and our performance last year far exceeded our expectations.
"In 2011, we sold eight trucks but last year we sold 182 and business is continuing to look good.
"Here at Gulf Industry Fair you can detect a more positive attitude and that is good news for our business," he said.
"We are displaying a complete package of equipment from small tampers to huge trucks. We are a company that can offer complete transportation solutions to industry," he added.
