INTERNATIONAL DISTRIBUTORS VISIT THE HOME OF TEREX® TRUCKS

MOTHERWELL, SCOTLAND, 11th DECEMBER 2012 – More than 50 Terex distributors from around the world travelled recently to the home of Terex trucks in Scotland, UK. Distributors from Africa, Asia, France, Norway, Russia and the Middle East visited the manufacturing facility where sheets of metal are transformed into rigid and articulated trucks, some of which have payloads of up to 100 tons.

During the event, visitors were able to speak with key Terex representatives and had the opportunity to see each stage of the manufacturing process, from assembly and painting to fabrication and quality checks. This transparency of operations was one of the most important aspects of the event, according to Terex Articulated and Rigid Trucks Product Manager, Scott Pollock: “Over the years, Scottish manufacturing and engineering has become synonymous with quality and innovation. Bringing our distributors to the site where we manufacture the trucks gave us the perfect opportunity to show them the quality that is built in to our trucks at each stage of the design and manufacturing process.

“All of our experts were on hand to speak to our customers and address any queries they had. From our Engineering Manager to the VP of Sales, we all aim to be as accessible as possible. Communicating with our distributors and customers has, and always will be, the most important thing for us and events like these give us the perfect opportunity to meet face to face. Ultimately, we wanted to arm them with the best information possible to help make their businesses more profitable.”

At the event, Terex distributors also had the opportunity to operate the TA300 and TA400 articulated trucks and were given walk-around presentations on both articulated and rigid trucks to help them understand the unique features that make Terex trucks productive for their owners.
