The Terex Corporation has celebrated the 20th anniversary of the acquisition of its French Montceau-les-Mines site and Terex Port Solutions (TPS) marked the occasion with the its 3,000th reachstacker, a Liftace 5-31, leaving the assembly line.
Steve Filipov, Terex Material Handling and Port Solutions president, said: “It was with the acquisition of the site 20 years ago that we first entered the port technology business. At that time, Montceau-les-Mines manufactured all-terrain cranes and reachstackers.”
“These reachstackers were our first machines for terminal operators on coasts and rivers. Since then, Terex has extended its portfolio and with the TPS business group created in 2012, we are now a leading provider of system solutions for global ports.”
Montceau-les-Mines, located north of Lyon, is a global Terex centre for reachstackers and all-terrain cranes with a lifting capacity of up to 100 tonnes.
The Liftace 5-31 reachstacker from TPS is the first of the Terex new-generation lift trucks and was officially launched in April, 2015.
