RM-Terex has signed its first contract to supply Terex TG 180 motor graders to South Africa
On April 16 at BAUMA 2013, an international exhibition of construction equipment and technology that is being held from April 15-21 in Munich, RM-Terex signed a contract with the firm ELB Group (South Africa) to send its first shipment of Terex TG 180-series motor graders to the Republic of South Africa. RM-Terex plans to supply more than 100 units of equipment under this contract.
The machinery will be used to build and maintain roads. The main advantages of the new motor graders include their high degree of maneuverability and sturdy metal construction. A series of design improvements were incorporated into the tools in order to improve the reliability and safety of the equipment intended for construction work in humid tropical climates. The operator's comfort and safety were the first consideration. The operator's ergonomically designed work station offers ample visibility and comfort, and includes a control system with a convertible steering column, an information display, a climate-control system, and a comfortable seat. The convertible steering column can be used to operate the grader from either a sitting or standing position.
Alexander Filatov, the general director of RM-Terex, "We are proud that ELB Group was interested in buying a new generation of Terex motor graders and has chosen our company as a strategic partner. Our work together will be a wonderful opportunity for us to enter the market in South Africa and try to capture a large percentage of it. That country is currently in the midst of major infrastructure projects that require reliable construction equipment. Expanding the line of products we offer, as part of our partnership with Terex, makes it possible for us to open up new sales markets and offer customers world-class products at competitive prices."
