Terex merges Pegson and Powerscreen

Terex Corporation has announced the merger of its Terex Pegson and Powerscreen brands under the Powerscreen name. The move will create one of the world’s largest suppliers of mobile crushing and screening equipment.

This does not, however, mean that that it is the end for the Pegson name and it will carry on being used on product descriptions for crushers such as the XH250 Impactor Crusher will be known as the Powerscreen Pegson XH250 Impactor Crusher.

This follows the move by the US firm to create two new Centres of Excellence in Northern Ireland earlier this year, one in Dungannon, where Powerscreen screening equipment is produced and one in Omagh, where crushing equipment is built.

Powerscreen global sales director, Pat Brian, said the impending move is an accurate reflection of its business and people. He also explained that merging the screening equipment into one company would make it easier to identify Powerscreen’s products.
