Terex Corporation

Watertown, SD | Food + Industrial

Overview

Terex consolidated its multi-city operation at one new facility on a greenfield site to facilitate growth and improve its culture of safety.


Opportunity

With ten manufacturing facilities, Terex Utilities wanted to simplify its operations by locating them under one roof.

Solution

Opening in 2020, Terex Utilities’ new facility will consolidate ten of its manufacturing facilities into a single one located in Watertown, South Dakota. Constructed on an 80-acre greenfield site, this 415,000-square-foot facility is designed with lean manufacturing principles at the forefront. The new facility brings steel fabrication, installation, shipping and receiving, wet painting operations, fiberglass manufacturing, assembly, and testing onto one site, as well as research and development, a new powder coat operation, training space, a new showroom and customer center, and office facilities. Focused on improving workplace satisfaction and wellbeing, ISG integrated natural light, outdoor break areas, and observation mezzanines throughout the site and facility.


"In this facility, we’ll manufacture and assemble our fiberglass booms, and there’s a section of the building that is a multi-story high bay to allow the booms be raised inside the building and testing to be performed.”

- Alan Stager, Finance Director, Terex Utilities
