Vice President’s Award for outstanding achievement presented to Motherwell-based company
SCOTLAND-based Terex Trucks have won a Vice President’s Award for outstanding achievement at the Scottish Engineering Awards.
Paul Douglas, managing director of Terex Trucks, accepted the award during a ceremony at the Hilton Glasgow hotel on 16 May 2019.
The Scottish Engineering Awards honour the achievements of the Scottish manufacturing and engineering industry and celebrate the country’s diversity, vibrancy and innovation within the sector.
Terex Trucks became a division of Volvo Construction Equipment in 2014 and since then have received major investments into their factory, products and quality processes. These efforts were recognized by the accolade.
The jury chose companies based on local investment and employee training, as well as their ability to be innovative. Profitability, lean transformation reinvention and health, quality, safety and environment (HQSE) also played a part.
Speaking at the event, Mr Douglas (pictured second from left) said: ‘We are absolutely delighted to receive this award. It reflects our continuous efforts in investing in our people, facility and product quality.
‘To be recognized for this is a great accolade and it is a real motivator to continue to find innovative ways to design, build and market our products whilst investing in our team members, new apprentices and community projects.’
