Takeuchi Manufacturing (U.S.) Ltd., Pendergrass, Ga., has completed a new supply agreement with Terex Construction, Westport, Conn., for the supply of eight new models of Takeuchi-branded skid steer loaders.

The agreement will provide Takeuchi with a range of high-specification, high-performance, vertical- and radial-lift skid steers loaders to complement the company’s existing line of compact equipment, according to the company. Takeuchi’s current distribution and support channels will handle sales, rental and parts supply and customer support needs for the new skid steer loaders.

“Takeuchi is dedicated to meeting the changing needs of today’s contractor, and we are proud to provide compact equipment solutions that suit the needs of every contractor,” says Clay Eubanks, president of Takeuchi US. “After an extensive review process, we selected Terex to supply us with these new skid steer loaders ranging in operating weight from 6,500 pounds to 8,600 pounds, and rated operating capacity ranges from 1,500 pounds to 3,000 pounds. We will support our customers' parts and service needs in the same way as we do or other products today. The addition of the skid steer loader line adds to our full range of compact equipment, which includes compact track loaders, excavators and wheel loaders.”

“This is a great opportunity to leverage our manufacturing operations in Grand Rapids, Minnesota, and drive additional operational efficiencies through our whole production and supply chain,” says Dean Barley, vice president and general manager, Terex Construction Americas and Global Aftermarket. “We are proud to be recognized for our quality and support and pleased to assist in meeting the equipment needs of others in our industry,” adds Barley.
