Demag crane operations on the move
By Laura Hatton21 July 2014
Terex Corporation plans to move production of its Demag overhead cranes from Houston to Oklahoma, USA.
The new upgraded facility at the Oklahoma City facility (OKC), manufactures aerial work platforms, construction cranes and material processing products. It recently benefited from a $40 million investment, a spokesperson said.
John Paxton, Terex Material Handling, North America vice president and general manager, said, “This move will help us align with increasing customer demand by more than doubling our crane manufacturing capacity, while continuously serving our customers in the growing southwest and southeast markets. By taking advantage of manufacturing synergies at OKC, we will further improve our overhead crane manufacturing processes and increase efficiency. Our sales and service teams in Houston, Dallas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana are unaffected, and continue to provide local support to our customers in these markets.”
