Volvo CE to Distribute Terex Trucks in Korea

September 20, 2016

Launching its off-highway rigid dump trucks in the Republic of Korea and expanding its ability to support customers in Asia, Volvo Construction Equipment announces it is the national dealer for Terex Trucks in Korea.

Frederic Ruesche, vice president at Volvo CE Hub Korea, commented, “I am happy to introduce Terex Trucks’ world class range of rigids to our customers. Volvo CE Korea can now offer an expanded range of product choices that range from compact excavators to 100-tonne rigid trucks – thereby increasing the potential for work efficiency and productivity of our customers.”

Established in 1998, Volvo CE Hub Korea has firmly established itself as a market leader in Korea, as well as carefully extending its portfolio of machines offered.

Volvo CE Hub Korea, headquartered in Seoul, has 13 branches and approximately 250 employees, will offer customers two rigid dump trucks manufactured by Terex Trucks:

  • Terex 72-ton payload capacity, 760 hp TR70
  • Terex 100-ton payload capacity, 1050 hp TR100

The trucks' hydraulic disc brakes deliver better operator control, while the transmission retarder decreases brake wear, reducing ownership costs and increasing machine availability. Air suspension bears the load through variable-rate nitrogen-over-oil type struts, ensuring a smoother ride, and reducing operator fatigue to maximize production.

Volvo CE Hub Korea will also offer thorough aftermarket care service, including Factory-Approved parts out of its Incheon-based warehouse.

Built at the Motherwell factory in Scotland, the TR70, and TR100 provide the perfect balance of power, effective gearing and optimum weight distribution to move more material in less time over the toughest terrains. Volvo acquired the truck business in 2014.

“We are confident that Volvo CE Hub Korea will be an invaluable addition to our dealer network,” said Clement Cheong, APAC’s sales and marketing director at Terex Trucks.
