Westport, USA, 12. June 2012
Terex Corporation (NYSE: TEX) is introducing Terex Port Solutions at TOC in Antwerp. As part of the Terex Material Handling and Port Solutions segment of the company, this group will unite Terex and Gottwald Port Technology as a single source for serving customers operating in the port business. Both are global leaders in the port equipment industry and are renowned for world-class quality, innovation and service. As part of this transition to a cohesive market vision, Gottwald Port Technology products will be branded Terex® Gottwald.
“Both Terex and Gottwald are well recognized as significant suppliers to the port industry, and we can best serve customers as a unified organization that is committed to a single purpose and identity,” says Klaus Peter Hoffmann, Leader of Terex Port Solutions. “By moving forward together, we believe Terex Port Solutions will offer more innovative products and services that aim to provide the highest return on investment, allowing our customers to be more profitable.”
The Terex Port Solutions portfolio includes several familiar and respected product lines including the former Noell, Fantuzzi, PPM and Reggiane brands alongside the extensive portfolio of Gottwald products. The range includes ship-to-shore and mobile harbour cranes, straddle and sprinter carriers, automated guided vehicles and stacking cranes, rubber tyred and rail mounted gantry cranes, reach stackers, empty and full container handlers, as well as general cargo lift trucks. These products offer a wide range of cost-effective drive systems, including environmentally compatible electrical solutions. No other company in the port industry offers more ways to move cargo quickly, safely and efficiently, automated or non-automated, with less downtime along with strong returns on investment.
Terex Port Solutions also offers a range of software and services that are designed to improve the efficiency of cargo handling and overall terminal management. The group offers complete systems for loading and unloading, transport, handling and storage of containerized and bulk cargo.
“Expanding our port equipment solutions allows Terex to develop deeper partnerships with our customers, so tasks can be completed more cost effectively,” concludes Hoffmann.
