Based in Omagh, Terex® Mobile Processing Equipment (Terex® MPE), the leader in design and manufacture of mobile crushing, screening, washing and recycling solutions recently hosted a four–day conference and new product demonstration in Ireland. The event attracted over 300 international dealers and customers from over 60 countries, worldwide.
A packed program of events included a business conference, live product demonstrations featuring 14 different models, a new dealer induction session, an end-user feedback seminar and factory visits to the Terex® manufacturing centres of excellence in Omagh and Dungannon.
During the conference, held at Ireland, guests were introduced to the new Terex® MPE business structure, business strategy and key focus areas for the coming years. Product development projects were outlined and the product implications relative to Tier 4 engine regulations were also highlighted.
“Despite the recent poor economic conditions, matched only by some equally poor local weather conditions, this event has allowed us to successfully introduce some key new models and recent product developments to our dealer network and end users,” says Nigel Irvine, Sales & Marketing Director, Terex® MPE.
“Having aggressively expanded our international dealer network, this was our largest dealer event to date. With many new dealers in attendance, it has been the perfect opportunity to show case our most popular products, in real world working conditions. The end–user feedback seminars were very worthwhile and provided our R&D team with some food for thought and exceptional ideas for future product developments.”
“The event received very good response from the dealers in Asia and Middle East and they were upbeat about the pace of recovery in their markets in 2010,” says Jaideep Shekhar, Regional Business Manager-Asia & Middle East.
