Terex Trucks expand in North America
Kevin Clark appointed as regional sales manager for north-eastern territory of the US and Canada
WITH the predicted growth in the US and Canadian construction industries, Terex Trucks are strengthening their presence and investing in these key markets.
This year, the US construction industry is expected to grow by 5%, owing to positive trends in housing and large-scale infrastructure projects. It is also predicted that Canadian construction will increase by 4% in 2018.
With this kind of growth on the horizon, Terex Trucks are expanding their operations and have hired a new regional sales manager to cover the north-eastern territory of the US and Canada.
Kevin Clark joined Terex Trucks on 2 April 2018, bringing more than 25 years’ industry experience with him. He has previously worked at dealerships, contractors and original equipment manufacturers.
‘It’s great to be working with Terex Trucks and I’ve been able to hit the ground running thanks to my previous experience with the machines, both in the field and in the retail business,’ said Mr Clark (pictured).
‘My first big sale in 1998 was a 3066 Terex Trucks hauler, which I sold to a contractor who was buying his first Terex Trucks machine. We are still in touch and he now operates a large fleet of TA300s.
‘I’ve always been passionate about the truck line and the people behind it. Over the years, I’ve seen the physical changes and technical improvements that have made the Terex Trucks machines the great products that they are today. I’m proud to finally be part of the Terex Trucks family.’
Robert Franklin, sales and marketing director for the Americas, at Terex Trucks, said: ‘From the very first conversation we had with Kevin, it was clear that his knowledge of and passion for haulers would benefit our customers.
‘Kevin has worked both at one of Terex Trucks’ largest articulated hauler dealerships and at one of the largest users of our machines, so he is bringing fresh and relevant insights to the role. He has a passion for our products and is a great asset to our team.’
