Terex uses TOC to launch port rebrand, following Demag acquisition
Terex Corporation is introducing Terex Port Solutions at the TOC Container Supply Chain Europe event, which started this morning in Antwerp and runs through 14 June.
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. 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 recognised as significant suppliers to the port industry, and we can best serve customers as a unified organisation that is committed to a single purpose and identity,” said 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.
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 containerised 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,” added Hoffmann.
