Terex Corp. has been awarded an $18.9 million contract to build 200 Terex TX51-19MD, 5,000-pound capacity, light rough terrain forklifts for the United States Marine Corps through its Terex Government Programs unit in Stafford, Va. The initial delivery order is in the amount of $9 million for more than 100 units.
The Terex TX51-19MD LRTF is a fully tested and mature “field-proven” telehandler system that has been in the USMC inventory for many years, with initial competitive procurement in 2001. The TX51-19MD, manufactured by Terex Aerial Work Platforms, is a militarized version of the original commercial model to meet the rigorous demands of the USMC, including: fording, beach operations, helo-transport, and the full spectrum of military lifting missions.
“We are proud to continue our support to the USMC through this re-procurement,” said Thomas Manley, vice president, Terex Government Programs. “We have been fulfilling military contracts for close to a decade and the Corps has been one of our most loyal customers.”
