Terex Utilities has begun expansion of its Huron, South Dakota, facility to increase capacity for fabrication, machining, and welding of core components for its aerial devices and digger derricks. The facility upgrade includes a 11,400 sq.-ft. addition to the existing building, investment in new machining and welding equipment, modernized ventilation systems, and remodeled office space. The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2022.
“This expansion enables Terex Utilities to increase vertical integration of its supply chain for the best lead time and flexibility of key components such as booms, turntables, and pedestals,” said Darryl Niven, VP and general manager of Terex Utilities.
“Our expansion and the addition of a third shift will increase the capacity for Huron team members to focus on core component production,” said Tiara Marcus, Huron operations manager.
“All of our critical components, including cylinders, are produced within 400 miles of our facility in Watertown. This gives us easy access to our vendors and helps us ensure quality and continuity of suppliers," said Niven.
