Terex Construction Goes Big With 460 Unit Site Dumper Order


Coventry, England, March 2015 – Global equipment solutions provider, Terex Construction, has announced its largest site dumper order of the year. The contract, which comes as part of an ongoing relationship with the UK’s leading independent hire company – GAP Group – will see a total of 460 one, three, six and nine-tonne Terex® site dumpers supplied throughout 2015.


Manufactured at Terex Construction’s Coventry facility, the specialist Power Tip and Swivel Tip site dumper units will be used in a wide variety of high-profile construction projects. The equipment will help to both expand and rejuvenate GAP’s construction fleet, providing high quality rental units for customers nationwide.


Paul Macpherson, Sales and Marketing Director of Terex Coventry, commented: “We are delighted to once again work with GAP on a large-scale national fleet contract. This latest order furthers our excellent relationship and reflects a rising demand for rugged and reliable equipment, designed and built in the UK, using innovative processes and proven designs.”


Ken Stewart, Group Procurement Manager at GAP, added: “We have enjoyed a long-standing relationship with Terex and this agreement reinforces our relationship with them.


“In particular, we’re looking forward to receiving delivery of Terex’s brand new nine-tonne site dumpers. Fitted with JCB EcoMAX engines, each unit is Tier 4 Final in-cylinder and exhaust emission compliant, delivering additional torque and improved fuel consumption.


Prior to the Christmas period, we took delivery of the six-tonne model with the above engine and, so far, trials and customer feedback have been very positive. Attention to detail has been excellent, with the new dashboard design being well received.”


Stewart concluded: “Terex is one of several blue-chip OEMs with whom we have enjoyed a sound relationship. Whilst pricing is, and always will be, very important to us, we tend to focus on cost of ownership and overall value for money. Terex have met all of the above criteria.”
