The Zahid family has been connected to commerce for over a century and in 1950 a chance meeting with Caterpillar resulted in a close-knit relationship. Since then Zahid has distributed Caterpillar machinery and equipment to the Kingdom’s private and public sectors. This partnership eventually led to the formation of Zahid Group’s flagship company, Zahid Tractor & Heavy Machinery Co. Ltd., in 1967 by the late Sheikh Yousuf M. Zahid.
Over the years, Zahid Tractor has added international brands such as Challenger agricultural tractors, JLG material handling equipment, Rammer industrial hammers, Renault trucks, Svetruck specialized lifts, Terex cranes, and Volvo trucks and buses.
The company was subsequently restructured into three core business units – Construction Machinery, Commercial Vehicles and Rental. Today, Zahid Tractor serves a number of industries, including construction and infrastructure, industrial, logistics and warehousing, agriculture, transportation, petroleum, mining, and quarry and aggregates.
Zahid Tractor is one of the few companies in the region that is ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certified, proving its ability to deliver services reliably, safely and environmentally friendly. With over 40 branches Kingdom-wide, Zahid Tractor ensures close proximity to customers, no matter their location.
