General Motors
The Terex name has its origins as a division of General Motors. Due to a 1968
Total assets US$3.463 billion
Justice Department ruling, General Motors was required to stop manufacturing (2017)[1]
and selling off-highway trucks in the United States for four years and divest the
Total equity US$1.222 billion

"terra" (earth) and "rex" (king) for its construction equipment products and
Number of ~10,700 (2017)[1]

IBH Holding
General Motors sold the Terex division to German firm IBH Holding AG in 1980. After IBH Holding AG declared bankruptcy in
1983, ownership of Terex reverted to General Motors and was organized as Terex Equipment Limited (Scotland) and Terex USA
(Hudson, Ohio).

Randolph W. Lenz
American entrepreneur Randolph W. Lenz purchased Terex USA from GM in 1986,
then exercised an option to purchase Terex Equipment Limited in 1987. In 1988,
Lenz merged his primary construction equipment asset, Northwest Engineering
Company, into Terex Corporation, making Terex Corporation the parent corporation.
The construction assets acquired by Lenz throughout the 1980s including Northwest
Engineering Company, Unit Rig (brands Dart Truck Company), Terex Equipment
Limited and Koehring Cranes and Excavators, Inc. all became assets of Terex

different brands. The period of 1996–2003 was characterized by a large number of trucks in the world[2]
acquisitions under president and COO Ron DeFeo, with the group buying into
multiple new markets and expanding its presence in existing markets. In 1999, Terex
[8][9] These companies included Powerscreen International,
acquired Powerscreen PLC, a Northern Ireland-based group of companies.
Finlay Hydrascreens, Moffet Mountie, BL Pegson, as well as several others. Powerscreen and newly named Terex Finlay produce
mobile crushing, screening, washing and recycling equipment. Their products are used in industries such as construction, quarrying,
mining, landfill, aggregates, topsoil, compost/wood chips, asphalt, rock crushing, and recycling. Later in 1999, Terex went on to
acquire Cedarapids which provided road-building equipment to match compaction acquisitions within the earlier deal such as
Powerscreen subsidiary Benford Americas.[10]

In 2001 Terex acquired CMI Roadbuilding.[11] The Australian rock crusher specialistJaques Limited was also absorbed by Terex.[12]

In 2002, Terex acquired Genie Industries, a leading manufacturer of aerial work platforms. Genie Industries became known as the
Genie brand within the aerial Work platforms segment.[13]

Terex Corporation acquired the majority ownership (71%) of Tatra in late 2003, but as of late 2006 sold off that share to Blue River
S.R.O. for about $26.2 million in cash.[14][15]

Following the global financial downturn in 2008, Terex announced in February 2010 the sale of its mining equipment division to
Bucyrus International Inc. for US$1.3 billion.[16]

The exit from mining was followed by an exit from road building in 2013 when the CMI and Cedarapids units were sold to Fayat
Group, the parent company of Bomag and Marini.[17] Bomag retained joint-branding on the Asphalt Paver products, whilst the
Cedarapids Asphalt Plants were moved underneath CMI.[18][19][20] These divestitures marked the start of a series of sales to exit the
construction market, announcing the sale of the former Schaeff business in Germany to Yanmar Holdings in June 2016, and the
former Fermec business in Coventry, England being sold to French manufacturer Mecalac in December of that year.[21][22][23][24][25]
In March 2017, the sale of Terex's Indian Construction arm to Manitou was announced.[26] These business units had accounted for
just 5% of group annual revenues and departing the construction sector allowed Terex to focus on their core businesses of Cranes,
Aerial Platforms and Material Handling and Processing - a sector in which Terex had continued to invest with the April 2015
purchase of Continental Biomass Industries (CBI) of Newton, NH. CBI is still commonly referred to as the Heavyweight Champion
of Wood Waste Grinders and is a prominent player in the manufacturing of biomass processing equipment.

Joint ventures

Allegations of arms sale to Iraq

In 1992 American businessmanRichard Carl Fuisz reported to the Operations Subcommitteeof the House Committee on Agriculture
that he witnessed the construction of military vehicles at a Terex owned facility in Scotland in 1987. Fuisz alleged that Terex
employees reported that the vehicles were manufactured at the request of the CIA and British Intelligence and were destined for
service with the Iraqi military.[28] Terex denied the allegations and, in 1992, Terex filed a libel complaint against Fuisz and Seymour
M. Hersh, writer of a New York Times article covering Fuisz's allegations. After several investigations, including a 16-month-long
Federal task force investigation, no legal charges were filed against Terex and the New York Times, in an editor's note on December
7, 1995, said, "The article should never have suggested that Terex has ever supplied Scud missile launchers to Iraq, and The Times
regrets any damage that may have resulted to Terex from any false impression the article may have caused."[29] Subsequently, the
UNMOVIC report identified TEREX as a supplier of "rocketry" materials to Iraq, according to the German Newspaper, Die
Tageszeitung http://www.taz.de/1/archiv/?dig=2002/12/19/a0080
