Terex Corporation is focused on its mission of providing solutions to our Machinery and Industrial Product customers that yield superior productivity and return on investment. Terex has continued its evolution in recent years, primarily through a series of acquisitions and divestitures, designed to enhance the product offering, improve geographic coverage and deliver value to Terex customers, shareholders and team members. The history of Terex is not a simple one. This is the history that led to the name “Terex” and the evolution that followed. However, there is an equally rich history to many of the “historic” names that Terex acquired in recent years. This document is intended to cover the highlights.
