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 a Caterpillar representative led to the formation of a close-knit relationship, resulting in M.M. Zahid & Brothers being appointed the Cat dealer. This partnership eventually led to the formation of Zahid Tractor in 1967.
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.
At Zahid Tractor, we take great pride in our strong commitment to the growth of the Kingdom, our keen sense of corporate responsibility and our genuine desire to help every member of the communities we serve.
To provide excellence in customer solutions through a highly motivated workforce in partnership with leading global quality suppliers.
To ensure the company’s continued Leadership through increased diversification and growth while accelerating improvement in customer care and work force competence level.
