Zahid Tractors Company
The Zahid family has been connected to commerce for over a century, playing a pivotal role in the development of Saudi Arabia’s infrastructure. In 1950 a chance meeting with Caterpillar led to a close-knit relationship, and 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, in 1967 by the late Sheikh Yousuf M. Zahid.
Over the years, Zahid Tractor has evolved into three core business units – Construction Machinery, Commercial Vehicles and Rental. Today, we serve a number of industries, including construction and infrastructure, industrial, logistics and warehousing, agriculture, transportation, petroleum, mining, and quarry and aggregates.
To ensure their goal of continuously pursuing excellence, they maintain an ongoing investment in their people, facilities and the latest technology. They take great pride in their strong commitment to the growth of the Kingdom, their keen sense of corporate responsibility and their genuine desire to help every member of the communities they serve.
