This acquisition supports Terex MP's growth strategy to expand its offerings in the crushing and screening and environmental industries, with products that complement the existing portfolio. Trommels from MDS are heavy-duty trommels that will enable expansion into areas of the market that Terex MP does not currently serve.
MDS' 34,000 square foot facility will be the first Terex location in the Republic of Ireland, which diversifies its footprint and provides access to a new labour pool. The MDS facility and its team members will be led by Conor Hegarty, General Manager and Business Line Director. Previously, Conor held the position of International Sales Director for Terex Ecotec, and his commercial background and product knowledge will be an asset as he takes leadership responsibility for MDS.
MDS will remain a standalone brand along with Terex MP's Crushing and Screening businesses including Powerscreen, Terex Finlay and EvoQuip.
