Satpal Sokhi to reshape engineering department and implement new product strategy

GLOBAL equipment solutions providers Terex Construction have named Satpal Sokhi as the new head of engineering for their UK manufacturing facility in Coventry. Mr Sokhi, who has worked within the Terex Group for more than 13 years, began his new role in March 2016.

Over the coming months, Mr Sokhi will oversee a number of corporate initiatives to reshape the company’s engineering department and implement a new product strategy for the Coventry site. This will include a focus on improving quality while reducing costs, alongside introducing a number of new innovations across the site dumper and backhoe loader product portfolios.


Commenting on his appointment, Mr Sokhi said: ‘I am proud to be part of a team which continues to lead the industry in both R&D and technological innovation. As one of the world’s leading equipment solutions providers, Terex are the market leader for many of their products.

‘In the coming months, I look forward to driving further process change and introducing a new phase of product facelifts for our compact equipment range.’

Since joining the Terex engineering department in 2003, Mr Sokhi has been involved in the development of a number of significant product innovations, including Tier 4 final emissions-compliant engines across the Terex site dumper portfolio, four-wheel backhoe crab steer, and the market’s first use of Start-Stop machinery control.

Terex say his appointment as head of engineering is a further example of their ongoing commitment to furthering and developing talent from within the organization.

Gregg Horne, general manager at the Coventry facility, commented: ‘We’re confident that Satpal will make a hugely positive impact, bringing even greater value to our current procedures with his skilled perspective. Terex continue to invest in R&D, technology and equipment improvements, and Satpal will play a key role in this ongoing development.’
