Terex Trucks establishes new French connection

TEREX Trucks has appointed Griset Materiel as a new dealer in France.

The Motherwell-headquartered business said it is looking to extend its presence in France, where total construction project pipeline currently stands at €374.8 billion. The French government is investing €4 billion to build 40,000 affordable housing units per year across the country until 2023.

Founded in 1996, Griset Materiel sells, services and repairs construction equipment from two locations in the Rhône-Alpes area. The family business was looking to offer its clients a range of articulated haulers and Roland Griset, manager for the Lyon area at Griset Materiel, visited the Terex Trucks factory in Scotland to learn more about the TA300 and TA400 machines.

“We offer customers good quality and reliable machines, that’s why we’ve chosen to partner with Terex Trucks,” Roland said. “Their articulated haulers are sought-after machines in the French market, and they are perfectly suited to our customers’ needs.”

Griset Materiel will be selling both of Terex Trucks’ articulated haulers.

Guy Wilson, global sales director at Terex Trucks commented, “Griset Materiel is known for its experience, and with their great service attitude they will ensure customer satisfaction. They are a strong dealership with an excellent reputation that will not only sell our articulated haulers but will provide customers with great service and support too.”
