Launching its off-highway rigid dump trucks in the Republic of Korea and expanding its ability to support customers in Asia, Volvo Construction Equipment will become the national dealer for Terex Trucks in Korea.
Established in 1998, Volvo CE Hub Korea is headquartered in Seoul and has 13 branches and approximately 250 employees. It will offer customers two rigid dump trucks manufactured by Terex Trucks - the 65-tonne capacity TR70 and the 91-tonne TR100 - along with aftermarket care service, including factory-approved parts out of its Incheon-based warehouse.
Frederic Ruesche, vice president at Volvo CE Hub Korea, commented, “I am happy to introduce Terex Trucks’ world class range of rigids to our customers. Volvo CE Korea can now offer an expanded range of product choices that range from compact excavators to 100-tonne rigid trucks – thereby increasing the potential for work efficiency and productivity of our customers.”
Built at the Motherwell factory in Scotland, the TR70, and TR100 provide a balance of power, effective gearing and optimum weight distribution to move more material in less time over the toughest terrains. The hydraulic disc brakes deliver better operator control, while the transmission retarder decreases brake wear, reducing ownership costs and increasing machine availability. Furthermore, the air suspension bears the load through variable-rate nitrogen-over-oil type struts, which ensure a smoother ride, reduce operator fatigue and maximise production.
“We are confident that Volvo CE Hub Korea will be an invaluable addition to our dealer network,” said Clement Cheong, APAC’s sales and marketing director at Terex Trucks.
