MOTHERWELL, SCOTLAND, 9th OCTOBER 2013 – Terex Construction has signed with leading infrastructure solutions provider, RMA Group, to distribute Terex® trucks to customers operating in Laos. RMA now provides full sales, service and parts support for both the Terex articulated and rigid truck ranges, which are manufactured in Motherwell, Scotland, UK.

They foresee Terex trucks being used in such projects. RMA already operates a global dealership network of heavy equipment and power products. The company also currently represents global brands in the automotive industry such as Ford, Mazda, Land Rover, GM, Mercedes-Benz, TATA, and Mitsubishi-Fuso.
“We are pleased to welcome RMA as our newest Terex trucks distributor,” said Jon Bennett, Regional Director for Terex trucks in the Asia Pacific region. “With an excellent reputation in the mining and construction industry, and a strong geographical presence across more than 21 markets, RMA is a perfect fit for us and our customers. We were particularly attracted to RMA’s proven track record of providing a world class supply and support network throughout Indo-China since 1986, and also its dedicated in-house heavy equipment expertise. Providing excellent support to our customers after the sale is extremely important to us and it was vital we found a distributor with the same ethos – in RMA, we found it.”
Olivier Gaiemet, Director of Heavy Equipment Division for RMA, commented: “When looking to expand our heavy equipment fleet we wanted tough machines that could stand up to the demands put on them by the mining and construction industries. By working with Terex we are joining forces with a global brand that has extensive experience in mining and construction and which manufactures a product that is renowned for its robust design and ability to be used in heavy duty applications.
