Terex and GAP seal multi-million pound dumper deal


TEREX Construction has announced its largest site dumper order of the year –  460 three, six and nine-tonne Terex® site dumpers to be supplied to GAP Group throughout 2015.

Manufactured at Terex Construction’s Coventry facility, the specialist Power Tip and Swivel Tip site dumper units will be used in a wide variety of high-profile construction projects. The equipment will help to both expand and rejuvenate GAP’s construction fleet, providing high quality rental units for customers nationwide.

Paul Macpherson, Sales and Marketing Director of Terex Coventry, said, “We are delighted to once again work with GAP on a large-scale national fleet contract. This latest order furthers our excellent relationship and reflects a rising demand for rugged and reliable equipment, designed and built in the UK, using innovative processes and proven designs.”

Ken Stewart, Group Procurement Manager at GAP, added, “We have enjoyed a long-standing relationship with Terex and this agreement reinforces our relationship with them. In particular, we’re looking forward to receiving delivery of Terex’s brand new nine-tonne site dumpers. Fitted with JCB EcoMAX engines, each unit is Tier 4 Final in-cylinder and exhaust emission compliant, delivering additional torque and improved fuel consumption.

“Prior to the Christmas period, we took delivery of the six-tonne model with the above engine and, so far, trials and customer feedback have been very positive. Attention to detail has been excellent, with the new dashboard design being well received.

“Terex is one of several blue-chip OEMs with whom we have enjoyed a sound relationship. Whilst pricing is, and always will be, very important to us, we tend to focus on cost of ownership and overall value for money. Terex have met all of the above criteria.”
