TEREX has invested in a new 11-station site dumper production line at its Coventry manufacturing base.

The firm said the bespoke line provides real-time awareness and visibility of unit progress via visual and audio signals, and “more efficient space and height optimisation” means the system has a 40% smaller footprint compared to the previous line, despite a higher unit production capacity.

Neal Nowick, general manager at Terex Construction’s Coventry facility, said, “Combining our experience of the wider automotive supply chain and the values of high performance, partnership, planning and operational excellence – outlined within the Terex Business System (TBS) internal framework – we have been able to develop a completely bespoke production line for the manufacture of site dumper units.

“Alongside enabling us to reduce production time, minimise unit defects and deliver an even higher quality end product, as a mixed model line we are now able to manage production to meet the exacting build needs of our customers in a more efficient manner. Developed to provide real time material, production and information synchronisation, the new line provides a complete view of the production process, allowing us to maximise factory efficiencies.”

Terex has also announced an even stricter quality standard to ensure all units leave the facility in site-ready condition.
