Scania sets up for engines deal with US Terex Corporation 26 January 2010

Scania is to supply engines for vehicles and heavy equipment to $9.9 billion US construction and industrial equipment manufacturer Terex, following a partnership deal.

Jacob Thomas, senior vice president of product development at Terex, says the deal is totally flexible, allowing his organisation to select the most appropriate engine technology for its product applications and customer requirements.

"Not being an engine manufacturer, Terex has the flexibility to choose the best technical solution for each of its product applications and does not have to select a one-size-fits-all approach," explains Thomas.

"Scania has the technological expertise and resources to meet our requirements in key product applications and has an outstanding reputation globally," he adds.

Robert Sobocki, s Scania Engines' senior vice president, suggests that his company's engines don't only meet current emissions standards, but also "deliver fuel efficiency and low maintenance costs, resulting in low total ownership cost".

"Scania is committed to best-in-class service and its global support network for industrial engines will be ready to meet the high product support standards of Terex equipment customers."

That's relevant because of the transition to new emission standards in the US, and Thomas states that all affected Terex products will be updated with Scania engines in time for the phase-in – Stage IIIB and Tier 4i – beginning next year in Europe and North America, respectively.
