11.07.2013 / Terex Truck Days 2013

The home of Terex® trucks in Motherwell, Scotland, was abuzz end of June as more than 100 Terex distributors and customers from around the world gathered to find out more about the global manufacturer’s earthmoving machines. Attendees travelled from Africa, Asia, France, Germany, Russia, Scandinavia and the Middle East to see the manufacturing facility where sheets of metal are transformed into rigid and articulated dump trucks, some of which have payloads of up to 100 tons.

During the event, visitors toured the facility - which has more than 60 years of experience in manufacturing trucks - where they had the opportunity to see each stage of the manufacturing process, from fabrication and assembly to painting and quality checks.

General Manager of the facility, Paul Douglas, said: “Our truck operation was the first business within Terex Corporation as it is known today and it is one of the oldest manufacturers of rigid and articulated trucks. We are, therefore, very proud of our heritage and enjoy sharing our history with our international customers. There have been a lot of changes over the past few years in both the development of our trucks and the factory, including a recent $5 million investment in manufacturing equipment. This week was the perfect opportunity for our customers to find out more about the advancement of our truck manufacturing business.”

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