Verlinde France lifting equipment manufacturer set to help exports in Pakistan

Karachi: In the wake of Pakistan’s reported widening trade deficit, the country has received a welcome boost from Verlinde France following the company’s decision to commence jib crane delivery direct from Pakistan.

Federal Bureau of Statistics reported that growth in imports had exceeded shipments overseas, to see trade deficit grow to 50%; yet Pakistan still exported $1.84 billion of goods in September 2011, aided by growth in international companies continuing to do business in a country widely tipped for a big future.

Pakistan is looking to boost business after expansion slowed this year, due in no small part to record flooding experienced in September. But in an uncertain global economic climate, coupled with the well reported woes of the Euro zone, Pakistan government is still targeting 4.2 percent growth.

It is this level of potential that has seen Verlinde France and other global businesses move to Pakistan. Verlinde has already enjoyed massive crane orders with Indus Toyota, Pak Suzuki and global lifting giant will now commence jib crane delivery, also direct from Pakistan.

Jib manufacture based on Verlinde’s kit mechanism has already begun, meaning that jibs with SWL 50kg -2 tonne will now be manufactured and available from stock in Pakistan on demand and to order, revolutionizing Verlinde service to customers in the sub-continent.
