Fuchs Material Handlers11001 Electron Drive
Germany-based material handler manufacturer Fuchs is continuing the company's growth in North America by appointing two new additions to the sales team: Tim Gerbus and Shane Toncrey.
Fuchs will exhibit at ISRI April 14-19, 2018 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, in booth A6. Two machines will be on display: the MHL340 F2 and MHL350 F2 material handlers. Commenting on the lineup Todd Goss, General Manger for Fuchs in North America, said the features and solutions on these machines enable customers in the four core segments of scrap, waste, forestry and port industry to operate efficiently and boost return on investment.
Terex Corporation continues to implement a series of strategic moves and investments to better position its purpose-built Fuchs material handler business for global expansion and sales growth. Recently, the business was rebranded “Fuchs – A Terex Brand” in key markets for consistent global brand recognition. The Fuchs line also transitioned to the Terex Material Processing segment, which is a better strategic fit for the business within the broader Terex portfolio. Additionally, multiple new machine introductions were made at key international trade shows during the first two quarters of 2016, including the ISRI 2016 Convention in Las Vegas, Nev. and Bauma and IFAT 2016 held in Munich, Germany.
John Van Ruitenbeek has been appointed the North American Business Line Director for Fuchs material handlers. In this new position, Van Ruitenbeek will have full responsibility for supporting channel partners and customers, while leading the Fuchs business operations in the United States, Canada and Mexico. The Fuchs business line has been a part of Terex since 2002 and has previously been a part of the Terex Construction business segment. The business was recently realigned within Terex to the Materials Processing business segment due to a better strategic fit with other products sold into the scrap, recycling and environmental industries.
