The Hala story is rooted in an unwavering commitment to the people who work for our company, who in turn have a sincere focus on providing our customers with superior solutions that help their businesses develop.
Started by Mathew Abraham, a Mechanical Engineer with passion for heavy equipment, Hala has now transformed into a large business enterprise serving the whole of UAE and various other parts of the world with quality forklifts, wheel loaders, service and parts.
Mathew came to the UAE as a Works Manager at Jebel Pack at the end of 1996. But, an entrepreneur at heart, he was restless and wanted to embark on his own. Spotting an opportunity for reasonably priced forklifts, he set up Hala. He began by personally sourcing and importing used forklifts from Japan. These forklifts were reconditioned at his yard and then sold in good working condition. The reliable and professional after-sales service provided was a key factor in Hala’s success. Over the next few years, Hala expanded its business. In 2002, Hala was the first to introduce Sideloaders in the UAE to efficiently handle freight containers. In 2006, Heli, the world’s 10th largest forklift manufacturer, made Hala their sole distributor in the UAE.
Hala’s 19 years of experience in dealing with forklifts of all types has turned into viable and sustainable business model, covering the complete supply chain for Material Handling Equipment for Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah, Fujairah, Umm Al Quwain and Ajman. We also support the the East Coast and Northern belts of Africa from the UAE.
Heli is China’s No. 1 Forklift manufacturer and listed among the world’s top ten brands for material handling equipment. It is known internationally for its tough and efficient forklifts. Founded in 1958, Heli today produces about 100,000 units in a year and is the only Forklift Manufacturer listed on the Shanghai stock exchange. Hala is the sole distributor of Heli Forklifts since 2003.
We have a fleet of 60+ units from 1 ton to 25 tons currently under deployment on various sites across the United Arab Emirates across segments from the defense sector to the Oil and Gas industry. All units have Load Test Certificates and the necessary statutory and regulatory compliance. All our machines are manned by fully trained (and safety trained) operators.
