To better serve its customers, leverage the benefits of scale and lend its factories more readily to lean manufacturing techniques, Terex Materials Processing is proposing to revise its global operational footprint, creating dedicated "centres of excellence."
Under immediate consideration is the consolidation of manufacturing and assembly facilities to concentrate production, skills and expertise in identified "centres," for the Terex® Finlay, Terex® Pegson and Powerscreen® brands as follows:
Coalville will continue to house the Terex Global Chamber Design Centre - the centre of excellence in bringing Terex crushing technology to the forefront of the industry.
Each of the Coalville, Dungannon and Omagh locations would continue to provide aftermarket support, applications and sales services for their respective products through their customary points of contact. The current ranges of crushers, screens and wash plants would continue to be available.
It is proposed that the new centres would be established in stages throughout 2009 and into 2010.
Regarding the establishment of the centres of excellence, Kieran Hegarty, Vice President of Terex Material Processing commented: "We look forward to the many opportunities for synergies, efficiency and concentration of talent that these 'centres of excellence' would afford us. By focusing on similar products at one location, we would be able to provide our customers with the best possible value offerings; therefore, we firmly believe," Hegarty added, "that the proposed changes would allow us to retain and grow our strong global presence in the crushing and screening market."
