Terex Selling Demag To Tadano

Also exiting North American mobile crane product lines manufactured in Oklahoma City 

Terex Corp. has agreed to sell its Demag Mobile Cranes business to Tadano Ltd. for approximately $215 million.  The Demag Mobile Cranes business manufactures and sells all terrain cranes and large crawler cranes.  Included in the transaction are the manufacturing facilities in Zweibrucken, Germany and multiple sales and service locations.  The sale, which is subject to government regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions, is targeted to close in mid-2019.

Koichi Tadano, Tadano Ltd. Representative Director, president and chief executive officer said: “This is a strategic acquisition that offers Tadano considerable scope for growth.  The addition of the well-respected Demag brand of all terrain cranes and large crawler cranes range extends our product lines and options for customers.  The addition of the Demag branded mobile crane product lines will enhance our global position in this segment.  We believe that the Zweibrucken facilities and its global team members, as well as the current distribution partners, are valuable to the future success of the business.”

“The sale is based on strong industrial logic, as the Demag Mobile Cranes business will become part of a global crane company with complementary products and capabilities.  We are pleased to have entered into this agreement with Tadano, a strategic buyer who values the Demag Mobile Cranes brand, technology, distribution network and team members.” said John L. Garrison, Terex chairman and chief executive officer.   

Garrison added, “in addition to selling the Demag Mobile Cranes business, Terex will exit the North American mobile crane product lines manufactured in our Oklahoma City facility.  These changes will simplify our Oklahoma City operation, which will continue to produce telehandlers and re-manufactured units for our Aerial Work Platforms segment and various products for our Materials Processing segment.  Although we are exiting the OKC-based mobile cranes products, we will continue to sell parts, and offer service and support to our customers.”

Terex will continue to manufacture Terex Utilities products at its Watertown, South Dakota facilities.  Terex will also continue to manufacture Terex rough terrain cranes for the global market in Crespellano, Italy, Terex tower cranes in Fontanafredda, Italy, and Terex pick and carry cranes in Brisbane, Australia.
