Terex AWP suspends manufacturing in certain areas

By Lindsey Anderson26 March 2020

Terex Corp. issued a statement on March 25 stating it will suspend Terex AWP/Genie manufacturing in certain areas due to COVID-19 concerns and government mandates. The following facilities have closed with an estimated opening date of April 13:

  • Oklahoma City, OK
  • Moses Lake, WA
  • Redmond, WA
  • Rock Hill, SC

The company’s Umbertide, Italy location is also closed for the time being, but is estimated to open on April 6.

All Terex service and global parts distribution centers remain open, and the following plants are currently fully operational:

  • Huron, SD
  • Waterdown, SD
  • Changzhou, China

“We are shipping equipment,” the company said in a statement. “Parts operations, parts fabrication, service centers, logistics and shipping operations are running. Globally, our parts customer service is open with team members working remotely, equipped with the required tools and access to respond to customer inquiries. We remain well-positioned to serve customers through a number of channels, including parts.terex.com for Materials Processing businesses, gogenielift.com for Genie, utilitiesparts.terex.com for Terex Utilities, and Terex Service Centers, call centers and other flexible delivery alternatives.”

The statement went on to say, “We are following stringent precautions to keep our team members safe. From the earliest days of the outbreak, Terex has been implementing the advice and guidance of the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as following local country directives and guidance. Team members who can work remotely are doing so. For those working on-site, we are following recommended preventive protocols including staggering shifts, reducing team member concentration, disinfecting surfaces, sending team members home if they ill, and establishing guidelines for quarantine and other steps to keep the work environment safe.”

Terex said its supply chain is “flexible and resilient. From the outset of the COVID-19 outbreak, our supply chain teams ensured that our factories received the components and materials needed to maintain uninterrupted production. As we implement temporary plant suspensions and production rate reductions, the focus of our supply chain teams is shifting to limiting inbound material, so we receive only what is needed to support our current production schedules. We are working with suppliers to cancel or reschedule orders as needed.”
