Terex Materials Processing Systems recently invested more than $USD7.2 million ($AUD9.4 million) to establish a state of the art facility in Dungannon, Northern Ireland.
Terex Materials is a global division of the Terex Corporation that encompasses the Powerscreen, Terex Minerals Processing Systems, Terex Finlay, Terex Washing Systems and Terex Environmental Equipment brands.
The new Terex Materials facility includes a 957m2 office space, where a team of parts experts will field technical and sales inquiries.
The facility is expected to be able to house more than 86,000 live inventory parts. In addition to having a warehouse capacity of 5463m2, the facility has a 650m2 external canopy that can provide overhead storage for larger product.
The facility has also been fitted with “leading edge” technology to help the company “expedite all orders efficiently”. This includes three Hanel Lean-Lift automated storage and retrieval systems, which will operate with the facility’s 168 bays of high-bay racking; three dock levellers designed to improve ease of access for deliveries and container shipments of large-scale parts; and a range of Linde electric material handling equipment, including an order picker and aisle masters capable of working at a height of 9m.
Within Australia, Terex quarry equipment is distributed through four dealers: OPS Screening and Crushing Equipment, Finlay Screening and Crushing, Terex Minerals Processing Systems (MPS) and Lincom Group.
Terex Finlay mobile plant and Terex Washing Systems products are available through OPS in Western Australia and the Northern Territory, and through Finlay on the east coast of Australia, including South Australia and Tasmania. OPS is also the local distributor for Terex Environmental Equipment.
Terex MPS is responsible for the provision of fixed and modular crushing and screening plant to the Australian market and Lincom is the local distributor for Powerscreen.
Terex parts for each of the brands are available through their respective local distributors, and a Terex Materials spokesperson confirmed this would continue to be the case with the introduction of the new global parts facility.
However, the spokesperson noted the new facility would increase the inventory available to Australia’s local dealers, and improve Terex Materials’ response time to those local distributors, which could result in benefits for quarry customers further down the supply chain.
