Adding the Terex Trucks range to the Volvo Malaysia portfolio will broaden its market coverage
Terex Trucks has appointed a new dealer for Malaysia. This agreement has been struck to further support and supply the range of rigid haulers in South East Asia
As a result, Volvo Malaysia Sdn Bhd is now the official dealer for Terex in Malaysia, a move that will help strengthen the distribution footprint as well as supporting customers while also developing the brand in the APAC region.
Volvo Malaysia is a leader in the distribution, sale, and support of construction equipment for mining and quarrying throughout East and Peninsular Malaysia. The firm will now offer all four of Terex Trucks' rigid haulers, the TR45, TR60, TR70, and TR100, as part of its product portfolio.
"Terex Trucks is a perfect fit for our business, as the addition of the rigid haulers complements the existing range of equipment that Volvo Malaysia carries, while at the same time driving Terex Trucks penetration into an exciting market," said Wee Kim Wei, business director at Volvo CE Malaysia.
Malaysia’s economy, which is the fourth largest in South East Asia, is both vibrant and relatively diversified. With the construction sector strengthening, Malaysia also has varied opportunities for rigid dump trucks, which is where Terex Trucks’ versatile machines come in.
Commenting on the partnership, Clement Cheong, director of sales & marketing APAC at Terex Trucks added, "It is a natural progression for Terex Trucks to collaborate with Volvo Malaysia as we can go to the market with a complete range of equipment to serve the mining and quarrying segment in the country. Volvo Malaysia has been making progressive investments; in October, the Johor branch was inaugurated, making five branches in Malaysia.
Cheong continued, “We are confident that Volvo Malaysia will drive Terex Trucks penetration and provide excellent customer support with its branch network."
