TEREX CONSTRUCTION EXPANDS CZECH DISTRIBUTOR NETWORK

Leading equipment manufacturer enhances product availability and service across the Czech Republic

    Prague October 2012 – Building on its long-established truck business in the Czech Republic, and to broaden its offering to include compact construction equipment, Terex Construction has restructured and strengthened its Czech distribution network with two new distributors, ASbud Ceska Republika s.r.o. and BCD-Stavo s.r.o.. This restructuring makes the full range of Terex Construction equipment more readily available to customers throughout the country.

    Terex Construction Regional Director for Central Europe, Ronald Ziegler, said: “The Czech Republic is one of the most important markets in central Europe and has always been important to Terex. We are now taking the opportunity to restructure our distributor network and reposition Terex Construction for what we anticipate will be a market upturn in 2013 and 2014.

    “We have worked with ASbud in Poland for many years, and BCD Stavo is the Czech partner of a long-standing distributor of Terex in south-eastern Germany. These experienced companies will enable us to achieve market coverage with our compact equipment, while our distributor of many years, Austro Baumaschinen s.r.o., will continue to look after our Czech truck business.”

    Jan Kunčický of ASbud commented: “ASbud Česká Republika’s local market presence via its network of authorized distributors enables us to provide a wide portfolio of state-of-the-art products, embodied by the Terex brand, and comprehensive sales and service support to our customers.”

    Martin Čížek of BCD Stavo added: “By growing its distributor network, Terex Construction is now closer to Czech customers and provides its full range of machinery, qualified service support and customer financing options through experienced authorized distributors.”

    The expansion of the Czech distributor network comes as Terex breaks new ground with its range of versatile, innovative and efficient backhoe loaders, the latest model of which is the TLB840. Designed to increase productivity and efficiency, Terex® backhoe loaders are powerful workhorses with a host of features aimed at enhancing comfort and aiding productivity.

    Terex Construction Sales Director, Marcus Rosenkranz, added: “We have grown our backhoe loader market share substantially over recent years and, together with our new distributors, we will improve our visibility and have a presence in every single region of the Czech Republic. To help achieve this goal, we’re pleased to be launching three new products this year, our TLB890 backhoe loader, our new skid steer loader and our PT100 compact track loader, which have all been developed to suit the needs of our Czech customers.”
