Scotland-based global equipment manufacturer Terex Trucks will exhibit its TA400 and TA300 at ScotPlant, the nation’s biggest construction equipment event.
The TA400 articulated hauler is designed to meet the demands of the most extreme operations.
Terex Trucks is gearing up to showcase its TA400 and TA300 articulated haulers on home ground at ScotPlant on April 20th and 21st. The Gen 10 machines will have pride of place on the Motherwell-based company’s exhibition stand which can be found at space D18. Joining Terex Trucks throughout the two-day event will be the company’s official UK dealer, TDL Equipment, which will be exhibiting nearby at stand D20.
“Scotland is the home of Terex Trucks, so we’re excited to be exhibiting once again at the leading construction show in the country,” says Paul Douglas, Managing Director of Terex Trucks. “Scotland is known for the quality of its engineering and at Terex Trucks we are proud of our Scottish roots. We are looking forward to exhibiting the Gen 10 TA400 and TA300 so we can discuss our latest innovations and investments with customers.”
“TDL Equipment is proud to be the UK mainland distributor for Terex Trucks,” says John Black, Sales Director at TDL Equipment. “ScotPlant is an important fixture in our calendar because it’s a chance for us to meet with existing and potential future customers to showcase the latest Gen 10 articulated haulers.”
More than 4,000 construction trade professionals flocked to the last ScotPlant show, which took place in 2016. The number of visitors and the impressive names on the exhibitor list helped to reaffirm its reputation as an event where high-value deals are done. The biennial show will once again be hosted at the Royal Highland Centre in Edinburgh.
