Terex Trucks has appointed a new dealer in France to meet the growing demand for articulated haulers in the country. The company says this growth is being driven by a €375 billion construction project pipeline.
Founded in 1996, the dealer Griset Materiel sells, services and repairs construction equipment from two locations in the Rhône-Alpes area, and the majority of its customers are active in mining, construction and landscaping.
To expand its product line-up, the family business was looking to offer a range of articulated haulers.
Referring to Terex Trucks, Roland Griset, Manager for the Lyon Area at Griset Materiel, said, “Their articulated haulers are sought-after machines in the French market, and they are perfectly suited to our customers’ needs.”
Griset Materiel will be selling both of Terex Trucks’ articulated haulers – the TA300 and TA400.
The 28 tonne TA300 is well suited to applications such as quarries, infrastructure developments and commercial construction projects. After a recent upgrade, it now comes with a new transmission to improve fuel efficiency, performance, productivity and operator comfort.
Meanwhile, the 38 tonne TA400 is the larger and more powerful of the two machines. For this reason, it is a popular choice for jobs in quarries and mines.
Both haulers have been designed to maximise operator comfort, with an HVAC system and adjustable armrests.
Guy Wilson, Global Sales Director at Terex Trucks, said of the French dealer, “They are a strong dealership with an excellent reputation that will not only sell our articulated haulers but will provide customers with great service and support too.”
Griset Materiel also offers a rental service and it has been a Case dealer since the company’s inception in 1996. Other brands of equipment it distributes include Bomag, Doppstadt, Weycor, Atlas and Ausa.
