Cropac Equipment, in Canada, has ordered 22 cranes from Terex in a US$20 million deal.
It includes eight Terex Roadmaster 9000 truck mounted cranes, the first of which is to be delivered in May this year. The seven other units will follow at the rate of one machine per month.
Other cranes ordered include one Terex AC 140, one AC 250, and two AC 350/6 all terrain cranes, as well as rough terrain and truck crane models.
"The Roadmaster 9000 is the result of our highly customer-focused approach to product development," said Jay Barth, Terex truck cranes product marketing manager. "This new model is engineered to meet the diverse requirements of a wide customer base. Its design represents a collaboration between Cropac and Terex to ensure acceptance in Canadian and Northern US markets."
This order is the latest in a 20 year partnership with family-owned Cropac Equipment Inc., a Terex cranes distributor. "It supports our strategic initiative to grow our business in Canada. In addition, Cropac will continue to add service, support and new locations to further support this initiative," says Frank Bardonaro vice president, managing director Terex Cranes Americas.
Bill Finkle, Cropac Equipment president, added, "Taking part in the development process has provided us with the advantage of already knowing that our customers' demand for this new model is high. We are fully convinced that this is the right crane for our market."
