Mycrane extends franchisees22 April 2022
Franchisees for UK, Ireland and Qatar join Mycrane
Mycrane online crane rental platform has signed three more franchise agreements covering the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland and Qatar.
The new franchisees will be responsible for providing the full range of Mycrane services in their respective markets. They are already in the process of registering local crane rental companies on the platform and will shortly be marketing the service to customers.
The UK and Ireland business is headed by managing director Mike Bryant, a former sales manager at ALE. He subsequently worked for global freight forwarders Deugro and DB Schenker in project management and business development roles. His franchise partners are Peter Edwards and Luke King, who have worked for the last 15 years as publishers in the heavy lift and breakbulk sector.
In Qatar Mycrane will be owned and operated by Ant Dynamics, a Doha-based provider of heavy lift and transportation engineering services. Managing director Kamal Kassab has over 18 years’ experience in the heavy lift sector, working on major projects for the construction of oil and gas plants, civil works and football stadiums. He also holds a degree in Mechanical Engineering from the American University of Beirut.
Commenting on the appointments, Mycrane founder and CEO Andrei Geikalo said, “Entering the European market is an exciting moment for Mycrane, which will soon be operational in three more important countries.
“Similarly, we are delighted to welcome our new partner for Qatar, which remains one of the fastest growing global construction markets.”
Mycrane operates on a franchise basis and aid enquiries are welcomed from entrepreneurs who are interested in operating the service in their home markets.
