The Oklahoma City facility, with 675,000 sq ft of manufacturing space, is one of the largest Terex sites in the world. The company made significant investments at the site to implement lean manufacturing principles.

The Terex Oklahoma City campus also includes a 30,000-sq-ft, high-tech training facility. The center features large, overhead doors that allow for equipment to be brought inside for in-depth hands-on training.

Several upgrades were made to the manufacturing facility in preparation for adding paving and crushing equipment production. Specialized line components, higher capacity cranes and new bay doors were added to accommodate the large portable crushing equipment. The Terex Enterprise Resource Planning System, which will ultimately link all Terex business units together, is currently being installed at the Oklahoma City facility.

During the new line integration process, Terex ramped up production of its existing asphalt and concrete equipment lines to avoid disruption of finished product deliveries. The asphalt paving line was integrated in October 2009 and includes asphalt pavers, screeds and material transfer vehicles and devices. Full integration of the portable and stationary crushing lines consisting of cone, impact and jaw crushers and portable plants will be completed by mid-year 2010. Prior to these integrations, the facility produced asphalt and concrete plant equipment, reclaimer/stabilizers, milling machines, concrete slipform pavers and landfill compactors.

Even with the addition of new lines, the Terex Oklahoma City campus has nearly 100,000 sq ft of additional manufacturing space and room for expansion.
