Zero48 distributes Terex® construction equipment in Guinea through its local subsidiary company IBS Sarl


Motherwell, Scotland, UK, 29th March 2013 – Terex Construction announces leading international equipment services specialist Zero48 as its first dealer in west Africa to further strengthen its global dealer network and to meet customer needs in the region. Zero48, through its subsidiary company, IBS Sarl, will distribute Terex® construction equipment in Guinea and will initially focus on selling Terex articulated and rigid trucks, and other construction products, with a plan to distribute more of the Terex range in the future.


With Guinea's economy largely dependent on agriculture and mineral production, the new relationship between Zero48 and Terex Construction will be ideal to meet the demands for trucks in the mining industry and for construction machines to develop new infrastructures. Potential owners of Terex trucks will also be reassured to know that Zero48, through its subsidiary company IBS Sarl, can provide aftermarket support for the trucks when they are out in the field, in addition to numerous equipment monitoring solutions.


Terex Sales Director for North West Africa, Manuel Leal, explains: “Zero48 is a company which prides itself on its local knowledge and continued development of the communities in which it operates, and this made it the obvious choice when we looked to appoint a new dealer. Guinea is a fast-growing market, therefore, we are pleased to form a relationship with a company that has experience in delivering major construction initiatives in the region.


Zero48’s President, Paolo Allen Bosco, commented: “We’re delighted to be working with Terex as they are one of the leading construction equipment manufacturers in the world. It was important for us to find an organization which is forward-thinking and has faith in emerging markets such as Guinea, and in Terex we found that.


“Key to Zero48’s philosophy is promoting sustainability and leaving a legacy in the areas in which we operate. Terex also has a similar ethos which will complement ours perfectly. At our new office, which is currently being developed, we aim to employ predominately local people and we will help develop skill-sets they will have for life, such as machinery operation.”
