Terex Materials Processing to consolidate operations

TEREX Materials Processing have announced proposals to concentrate production, skills and expertise in separate dedicated crushing and screening ‘centres of excellence’ through a revision of their global operational footprint.

Under immediate consideration is the consolidation of the manufacturing and assembly facilities for the Terex Finlay, Terex Pegson and Powerscreen brands. This, says the company, would allow it to better serve customers, leverage benefits of scale and more readily apply lean manufacturing techniques at its factories.

Under the proposals, screening equipment for both Terex Finlay and Powerscreen would be produced in Dungannon, Northern Ireland, while crushing equipment for both Terex Finlay and Terex Pegson would be produced in Omagh, Northern Ireland.

 

Currently, screening machines are produced in both Dungannon and Omagh, and crushing machines are produced in both Omagh and Coalville, in Leicestershire. Terex say the Coalville operation would continue to house their Global Chamber Design Centre.

In addition, each of the Coalville, Dungannon and Omagh locations would continue to provide aftermarket support, applications and sales services for their respective products through the usual points of contact. The current ranges of crushers, screens and wash plants would also continue to be available.

It is understood that the new centres would be established in stages throughout 2009 and into 2010, with the loss of around 90 jobs at Powerscreen and more than 200 in Leicestershire.

Commenting on the proposals, Kieran Hegarty, vice-president of Terex Materials Processing, said that, by focusing on similar products at one location, the new centres of excellence would afford many opportunities for synergies, efficiency and concentration of talent.
