The Terex Trucks factory in Motherwell is playing its part in the construction boom in Russia.
Through its new dealer Mining Eurasia, the manufacturer is sending its articulated trucks to more customers and says the growth is set to continue.
The Russian economy is currently very strong and in 2018 grew at its quickest pace in five years, fuelled by the Siberian natural gas pipeline project and major infrastructure renovation. That helped boost business for Terex and it now wants increase its presence by reaching customers in new locations.
“Russian customers are very cost conscious,” said John Rotherford, global key accounts director. “That’s why our TA400 articulated hauler does particularly well there, as it ensures low cost per tonne and maximum productivity. The TA300 is also popular among Russian customers. It’s reliable and easy to operate [and] both these factors help to drive the majority of purchasing decisions.”
The company provides dedicated on-site maintenance and support, a service that’s especially valuable in Russia where dealers’ branches are often hundreds of miles away from customers.
The new dealer was appointed for the articulated vehicles in the Russian Federation earlier this year and the partnership is working well says Rotherford. “Going forward, the focus will be on growth and further development. Together with Mining Eurasia, we’re keen to expand into the far east and the far north west of the country.”
