Terex Minerals Processing Systems (MPS) moved its Victoria-based national headquarters to the new facility in Dandenong South in December 2015, consolidating the Terex MPS, Terex Cranes and Terex Genie businesses under a single roof.
Previously, the MPS and Cranes businesses had been co-located at a Clayton South office, while the Genie business had been based in a separate Dandenong South office.
John Flynn, Terex MPS’s market area director for Australia and New Zealand, told Quarry that at 18,000m2, the new, purpose-built site is three times larger than the two previous Terex offices combined, and that its 6500m2 workshop is also 50 per cent bigger than the previous workshops combined.
“The new facility better suits our requirements, providing more capacity and room for business growth,” Flynn stated.
“It features twin 20-tonne overhead gantry cranes, which, combined with three floor-mounted two-tonne jib cranes, will maximise lifting efficiency for new machine assembly and service rebuilds. The larger lifting capacity will lead to quicker, more cost-effective machine repairs.”
Flynn added that the facility’s position at a major junction near a freeway offered customers better access.
Terex MPS will celebrate the official opening of the new headquarters in the first quarter of 2016, although an exact date for the event is to be confirmed.
Terex MPS is a supplier of crushing and screening plant – including modular and portable equipment – that encompasses the Jaques, Cedarapids, Simplicity and Canica brands. Terex Cranes and Terex Genie, respectively, supply cranes and lifting equipment.
