Terex Materials Processing stands out in a competitive market by investing in R&D, Parts Facility and Telematics
Terex Materials Processing (MP) is part of Terex Corporation, a global manufacturer of lifting and material processing products and services that serve a broad range of industries, including construction, infrastructure, manufacturing, shipping, transportation, refining, energy, utilities, quarrying and mining.
The MP segment contains a portfolio of 10 different application- specific business lines and has a huge global footprint to include a significant presence in Northern Ireland (with locations in Dungannon, Omagh and Ballymoney, and a new location soon to be announced), so it is an obvious business to showcase in our ‘Made in Northern Ireland’ feature.
Terex MP has experienced growth in recent years. This growth, along with Terex implementing a tighter portfolio of businesses, has seen the segment play a much larger role in shaping the future of Terex.
A clear theme across the Terex MP business lines is that they invest heavily in product research and development to bring innovations to market that address their customer needs. We got to see and learn about the results of this during our factory visits, with all the new product introductions and improvements introduced this year.
Recognising that the sale doesn’t end with the machine being delivered, Terex MP also places a huge emphasis on efficient and effective supply of spare parts, which we saw at the parts warehouse in Ireland, when we also heard about a large distribution hub in Hosur, just south of Bangalore in southern India.
We also heard a lot about investment and developments in telematics—technology that goes beyond simply a list of statistics and numbers. In addition to regular reports on machine usage and fuel consumption to help customers manage their fleet, telematics is tied into predictive maintenance, where customers can know when their machine is due a service or when parts may need replaced.
The end result? Terex MP business lines are evolving their product lines and aftermarket service to best meet its materials processing customers’ present and future needs.
As we delve into the success of Terex MP, we visit Powerscreen, EvoQuip, Terex Finlay and Terex Ecotec to hear about their growth, new innovations and core customer offering, as well as the all- important Parts Facility that plays a key role in driving the reliable, efficient supply of parts to customers, maximising their machine uptimes and return on investment.
