As part of ongoing investments to strengthen its dealer footprint and support customers in the APAC region, Terex Trucks has appointed Volvo Malaysia Sdn Bhd as its official dealer in Malaysia. Terex says the appointment will enable it to supply its rigid haulers in South East Asia and support its customers in the region.
Volvo Malaysia is a leader in the distribution, sale and support of construction equipment for mining and quarrying throughout East and Peninsular Malaysia. To boost its offering to customers in these segments the company will add all four of Terex Trucks’ rigid haulers – the TR45, TR60, TR70, and TR100 – to its portfolio.
“Terex Trucks is a perfect fit for our business, as the addition of the rigid haulers complements the existing range of equipment that Volvo Malaysia carries, while at the same time driving Terex Trucks penetration into an exciting market,” said Volvo CE Malaysia business director Wee Kim Wei.
Malaysia’s economy, which is the fourth largest in South East Asia, is both vibrant and relatively diversified. Once the world’s biggest tin producer, Malaysia has ample oil and gas reserves as well as natural resources including rubber and palm oil, forestry and minerals. With the construction sector strengthening, Malaysia also has varied opportunities for rigid dump trucks, which is where Terex Trucks’ versatile machines come in.
The Scottish-built rigid trucks offer payloads that range from 41 to 91 tonnes. The machines provide a good balance of power, effective gearing and optimum weight distribution to move material efficiently over the toughest terrains. The robust, proven performers also deliver excellent rimpull, thanks to a resilient drivetrain and rear axle configuration.
Terex Trucks director of sales and marketing, APAC, Clement Cheong said, “It is a natural progression for Terex Trucks to collaborate with Volvo Malaysia as we can go to the market with a complete the range of equipment to serve the mining and quarrying segment in the country. Volvo Malaysia has been making progressive investments, in October, the Johor branch was inaugurated, making five branches in Malaysia.”
He concluded: “We are confident that Volvo Malaysia will drive Terex Trucks penetration and provide excellent customer support with its branch network.”
