Terex Corporation will relocate production of its Demag overhead cranes from its current Houston location to a newly upgraded Oklahoma City (OKC) facility.
“This move will help us align with increasing customer demand by more than doubling our crane manufacturing capacity, while continuously serving our customers in the growing southwest and southeast markets,” said John Paxton, vice president and general manager, Terex Material Handling North America. “By taking advantage of manufacturing synergies at OKC, we will further improve our overhead crane manufacturing processes and increase efficiency. Our sales and service teams in Houston, Dallas, Oklahoma and Louisiana are unaffected, and continue to provide local support to our customers in these markets.”
The 700,000-square-foot Terex OKC facility currently manufactures aerial work platforms, construction cranes and material processing products. The recent $40 million investment into the OKC facility and is part of an overall Terex strategy to enhance productivity by consolidating and streamlining production.
