Middle East Container Repair

Middle East Container Repair

Kanoo Shipping The Company was established in 1981 after his Highness the Ruler of Dubai gave his permission to a container repair facility in Port Rashid.

In 1994 MECRC opened its second workshop in Mina Zayed, Abu Dhabi and in early 2001 opened its third workshop in Jebel Ali. The company is owned by a combination of prominent local businessman and principal shipping agents.

Since its first opening in 1981 the Company has built on its original skills and the facilities that can be offered to clients. An example of this is the fact that MECRC was the first Company in the Middle East to have IICL certified Inspectors. Numerous persons have passed since 1990 and at the present time we have 10 employees who are IICL certified, some for the 5th, 4th , 3rd & second time.

All container inspections and repairs are carried out to International Standard and materials used are to the Industry specifications, e.g. Corten steel for body and wood treated to meet Australian T.C.T. requirements.

For reefer service we have been appointed as the local Depots for Carrier Transicold, Thermo King, Klinge Corp, Mitsubishi and Starcool. P.T.I.s, Pre-cools, cleaning as well as normal repairs are carried out in the workshops. Re-foaming of reefer insulation is also carried out in the structural workshops. There are 4 mobile units to attend to reefer repairs throughout the U.A.E.

Our Specialized Services

The company has mechanics to service, maintain and repair both its, own hire fleet and customer reefer gensets.

Apart from competitive rates for high standard repairs, other advantages we have are we utilize the waiting time of the container in the Port to carry out customer requirements and save possible future down time. Also, because we are located adjacent or close to the Container Terminal, transport costs are nil, or at least minimized.

Our Major Clients

The company’s major clients which we carry out repairs are; U.A.S.C, P.O Nedlloyd, Maersk, Hapag Lloyd and Uniglory, plus many other lines.

All services and facilities offered to clients are the same or similar in each workshop.
