The event commenced with Steven Aiken, Business Line Director for Terex Conveying Systems, outlining Marco's history, its current state, and reasons why Terex decided to purchase the brand. Trevor Park, General Manager for the Marco facility, provided an overview of the current product range and unveiled the brand's plans, including a significant expansion of the manufacturing facility. Representatives from Terex Financial Services were also available to explain their role in assisting Terex distributors with the buying and selling of equipment. Finally, attendees took part in an open discussion to better understand how Marco could fit into their current product lines.
Post-presentation, distributors were given an exclusive opportunity to tour Terex Mount Vernon, Marco's 100,000-square-foot manufacturing facility. Attendees had the chance to witness first-hand the processes involved in crafting Marco's conveying products.
“We have ambitious plans for the Terex Mount Vernon site," Aiken said. "A facility of this size with plenty of room for expansion gives us a real opportunity to increase our production capacity for conveyors in North America. Terex purchased Marco and the Mount Vernon factory in April 2023, so while it is early days, we have made great progress in that time. We’re currently in the process of modernizing the facility and putting processes in place to bring Terex Mount Vernon up to the standards we expect from all Terex facilities."
The Marco Introduction Day provided key insights into the brand's future trajectory and the developments underway at the Mount Vernon manufacturing facility. Distributors left with a better understanding of the opportunities available to them in promoting Marco's solutions throughout North America.
