Terex Corporation reported strong second quarter 2018 sales of $1.4 billion, up 19 percent versus Q2 of 2017, with increased sales and backlog in all three business segments. The results were driven by continued implementation of the company's Execute to Win business strategy and its focus on meeting the growing needs of customers during a period of broad-based growth.
Sales for the Terex Cranes business segment grew 10 percent to $335 million, driven by higher demand while constrained by global supply chain challenges. The global cranes markets are generally stable with growth in certain areas. Indications for the future are positive, with Terex Cranes Q2 ending backlog up 31 percent versus 2017.
“We delivered very strong results in the second quarter. Our global team continued to execute well and continued the trend of improving overall performance. We increased sales and backlog in all three segments and increased production to meet strong global demand,” said John L. Garrison, Terex president and CEO. “Overall, it was a strong quarter that positions us very well going into the second half of the year.”
Steve Filipov, president Terex Cranes said, “Our Tower Crane business continues to grow driven by higher demand in Europe, North America and Asia and our Utilities business continues to perform well in a relatively stable market environment. A critical element of our cranes improvement plan is to successfully introduce new products. The 3-axle Demag AC 55-3 all terrain crane is the latest addition to our portfolio. By reinvigorating our product portfolio, we are re-establishing ourselves as a leader in the all terrain segment.”
