Terex Aerial Work Platforms announces new facility
Terex Aerial Work Platforms (AWP), the leading global manufacturer of Genie aerial lifts, will open the doors to its new Redmond, Wash. facility in December. Already located in Redmond, the manufacturer will consolidate buildings to provide more than 100,000 sq ft of work space for its 400+ team members. This move extends the deep history of the Genie team in the Northwest, as the company was started in Kirkland in 1966.
"Bringing our extended team from multiple buildings into a single location has been a long-term goal for me and I look forward to finally seeing us together,” said Matt Fearon, President, Terex AWP. "This is an opportunity to work in closer proximity, improve communications and increase the speed with which we serve our customers."
The new building will also serve as a focal point for visiting customers featuring a pictorial Genie history timeline, which coincides with the brand’s 50th anniversary in 2016. The building will also house a guest lounge, a glass showroom filled with a variety of Genie equipment, a training room and an auditorium.
