The new manufacturing headquarters of Terex Utilities, Watertown, S.D., is now fully functional and the first production units have rolled off the line. The 450,000-sq.-ft. facility brings production operations under one roof on a 55-acre site in Watertown. The new facility houses assembly, fiberglass, paint and installation.
“By consolidating from 10 facilities into one, Terex Utilities improves internal communications and production efficiencies, which will reduce product lead times to better serve our customers,” said Clint Weber, vice president/general manager, Terex Utilities.
“Our manufacturing process enables delivery of quality products because we utilize a stable and robust U.S.-based supply chain, welding performed by certified team members, powder coating before assembly, and a fiberglass procedure that uses rectangular bi-axial epoxy resin filament winding. Before delivery, assembled units are 100 percent operationally tested. We are able to quickly build quality utility equipment to meet the specific needs of customers,” he said.
Terex Utilities hopes to celebrate the opening of its modern manufacturing facility with customers once the coronavirus is controlled. Until then, this video shows a time lapse of the new facility construction.
