Having purchased nine Terex Trucks TR100 rigid haulers during Intermat Paris in April, the ink was barely dry before Leadway Heavy Machinery (LHM) ordered a further 10 to be delivered to Myanmar. The 19 TR100 rigid dump trucks will be used for jade mining in Myanmar, transporting earth, rock and jade.
LHM has been the official Terex Trucks dealer in Myanmar since 2013. Its affiliated company, Aung Hein Min (AHM), based in Yangon, provides sales, marketing and service solutions for Terex Trucks customers.
“Firstly, the demand is there, and Terex Trucks understood our requirements for penetrating the rigid dump truck market,” said LHM’s CEO Jimmy-Chakart Seanchan. “In addition, the top management within Terex Trucks got fully involved in supporting us in the sale, including introducing flexible payment terms and a great after-sales service.”
Terex Trucks global sales and marketing director Sam Wyant says the TR100 rigid hauler delivers a robust performance in the steepest, deepest mines around the world. Its minimum maintenance needs and tough design make the TR100 ideal for working in the most demanding job sites in the ever-changing, tropical monsoon climate of Myanmar.
Established in 1996, Leadway Heavy Machinery is the official Terex Trucks dealership for Thailand and Myanmar. As well as jade mining, Leadway is expanding into other sectors including dams and copper mines.
“After LHM’s successful launch of articulated dump trucks over the past two years, we’re anticipating great success for our partners in Myanmar as they break into the rigid dump truck market with 19 new TR100s,” says Sam Wyant. “LHM is an invaluable partner in our dealer network, and together we’re looking forward to developing Terex Trucks’ position in this growing market.”
The TR100 rigid dump trucks are planned for delivery by the end of this year.
