Terex

Terex can trace its history back to 1933 with the founding of the Euclid Company by the Armington brothers. Their main product was haul tracks, which became a strong area of interest for General Motors. GM purchased Euclid in 1953, but soon issues arose due anti-trust rulings and Eculid’s domination of the off-highway dump truck market. In the 1970s, GM came up with a new name for their off-highway trucks and equipment not covered by the anti-trust ruling. That name was a combination of “terra,” Latin for earth, and “rex,” Latin for king: Terex.

Among Terex’s innovations are the world’s first off-road hauler, the world’s largest truck, and the world’s first twin-powered dozer. Terex would later acquire Fermec, Demag Mobile Cranes, and ASV.

Terex makes a wide variety of equipment for the construction and mining industries, including aerial work platforms, cranes, material handlers, telehandlers, backhoe loaders, compact track loaders, skid steer loaders, wheeled excavators, compact crawler excavators, wheel loaders, and motor graders.
