Scania to supply engines to Terex
SWEDISH truck and bus manufacturers Scania have signed a long-term agreement, commencing in 2011, to supply engines to construction and industrial equipment manufacturers Terex Corporation. Scania will supply the engines for some Terex vehicles and other heavy equipment manufactured and sold by the US-based company.
Commenting on the agreement, Jacob Thomas, senior vice-president, product development, marketing, and Terex Business System, said: ‘Not being an engine manufacturer, Terex have the flexibility to choose the best technical solution for each of their product applications and do not have to select a one-size-fits-all approach.
‘We can choose whatever engine technology is optimal for our product applications. Our approach is to look at what our end-users and dealers want in terms of purchase cost, operating costs, reliability, maintainability and product support.
‘Scania have the technological expertise and resources to meet our requirements in key product applications and has an outstanding reputation globally.’
Robert Sobocki, senior vice-president of Scania Engines, added: ‘In addition to meeting the new emission standards, Scania engines deliver fuel efficiency and low maintenance costs, resulting in low total ownership cost for the end-user.
‘We are committed to best-in-class service and our global support network for industrial engines will be ready to meet the high product support standards of Terex equipment customers.
Throughout 2010, Terex say they will continue working with their distribution network and customers to prepare for the transition to the new exhaust emission standards.
The transition for affected Terex products will go into effect in time for the phasing in of emissions standards Stage IIIB and Tier 4i, which will begin in 2011 in Europe and North America respectively.
