Terex Trucks expands into Benelux market
Published by Lucy Stewardson,
The new official dealer for Terex Trucks in the Benelux region is the Matermaco Group. After supplying and servicing Terex Trucks’ articulated haulers at its Algerian dealership for many years, the Group now also sells the machines in Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg.
From its two locations in Belgium, the Matermaco group will cover the whole of the Benelux region and will sell, rent, and service the Terex Trucks TA300 and TA400 articulated haulers.
For Terex Trucks, the venture into the Benelux market comes at the right time: the construction sector in the region is set to grow steadily over the next few years, driven by a strong demand for residential developments and office buildings. In Belgium, the construction industry is expected to grow by 5.1% to reach €75 billion (£76.4 billion) by 2022. The Dutch construction industry represents the sector with the largest predicted expansion within the Benelux region, and the economy in the Netherlands is expected to grow by around 5.5% in 2019.
Having worked with Terex Trucks at its Algerian dealership for many years, the Matermaco Group has a good understanding of the company’s articulated haulers.
“We know how reliable, comfortable, and easy to use Terex Trucks’ haulers are and we have a strong technical knowledge of the machines,” said Luc Deleener, Director of the Industry Department at the Matermaco Group. “This will enable us to offer customers a dedicated, personalised service. As the Benelux region is a relatively small market, we are close to the customers and understand their needs.”
“The team at Matermaco Group understands what customers in the Benelux market want and they know that our articulated haulers will be a good fit for their customers,” said Guy Wilson, Global Sales Director at Terex Trucks. “Our haulers are simple to operate and easy to maintain. They deliver low total cost of ownership and high productivity. With our machines and the Matermaco Group’s experience, we have a winning combination in this important market.”
Control and comfort
Since August 2018, the upgraded TA300 has incorporated a new transmission that helps to deliver a 5% improvement in fuel efficiency, as well as enhanced performance, productivity, and operator comfort. The upgraded transmission comes with two additional forward gears – eight in total – as well as four reverse gears. This helps to ensure smoother gear shifting and superior operator comfort. The 28 t machine is well-suited to infrastructure developments, commercial construction projects, and quarries. It is equipped with true independent front suspension as standard, resulting in traction control and operator comfort.
The TA400 is the company’s largest articulated hauler, with a maximum payload of 38 t and a heaped capacity of 23.3 m3 (30.3 yd3). Designed to meet the demands of the most extreme operations, the robust articulated hauler is suited to large-scale construction projects, quarries, and mines. The planetary gear transmission provides smooth, efficient gear shifting for optimised fuel consumption and a reduced cost of operation. Ground level test points and a fully tilting cab, combined with an electronically raised hood, ensure ease of service and reduced downtime.
