The concept of “Citizenship” is fundamental to our Terex Way values. We believe in being respectful of the communities in which we do business and in providing products and services that make life better for our customers and their communities.
Terex supports local, community-based organizations that recognize and meet the needs of the communities where our employees live, work and volunteer. Programs and organizations we support include, among others: hands-on programs to increase workforce readiness, programs to promote the empowerment and advancement of women in the workplace, research in the areas of safety design and ergonomics, and programs to conserve/preserve natural resources, such as parklands and waterways. Below are some examples:
