Innovative company goes electric, helping solve mounting global waste problem

As we continue to showcase companies who are leading the field in their industry, we are proud in this issue of Sustainability Today to have selected Terex Ecotec as the recipient of our Industry Excellence Award.

As global waste continues to increase exponentially, with a projected increase of 70% over the next 30 years, Terex Ecotec is at the forefront of “Making Waste Work.” The company states “recycling is our DNA” and offers a complete mobile recycling solution supporting a circular economy by reducing waste to landfill, turning waste into greener fuels, reducing reliance on fossil fuels.

2023 marks the 10th Anniversary of Terex Ecotec, a recognised innovative industry powerhouse in the design and manufacture of mobile recycling equipment. An exceptional, extensive industrial product portfolio includes slow, medium and high-speed shredders, trommel and recycling screens, waste handlers, metal separator and conveyors. All the machines are robust and user-friendly, with meticulous attention given to throughput, efficiency and serviceability. Terex Ecotec provides equipment for recycling, biomass and waste processing industries. Applications include waste wood/biomass, green waste, construction and demolition waste, commercial and industrial waste and municipal solid waste.

Gemma McKay, Marketing Manager for Terex Ecotec, added, “We have realised our ambition to be an industry leader in the recycling market. The best is yet to come!”

Terex Ecotec was established in 2013, as part of the wider Terex Materials Processing Group. Terex is branched into duo business divisions: Terex Aerials Works Platforms (home of the Genie brand) and Terex Materials Processing (MP). Terex MP has a distinguishable business portfolio supplying equipment to the minerals processing, environmental, concrete, material handling and lifting industries. Terex MP is a truly global group with manufacturing provisions and offices across four continents: North America, Europe, Asia and Australia and a dedicated customer sales and distribution network covering 130 countries.

Throughout its 10 years in business Terex Ecotec has established a global presence and today has over 45 distribution partners around the world, with the number set to continue to rise.

Expanding recently into Norway, Agder Anleggsenter AS is now the official distribution partner for the Terex Ecotec’s full range of mobile recycling equipment.

Richard Lavery, Terex Ecotec’s regional sales manager for Norway, said, “We are delighted to welcome Agder Angleggsenter AS into our dealer network and to represent our class leading recycling equipment in Norway. Agder Angleggsenter AS are one of the few companies in Norway to offer strategic sales, parts and support locations that span the length of the country. The addition of an experienced sales and servicing team will elevate our success in this region. I look forward to working with my colleagues in Agder Angleggsenter AS and expanding the presence of Terex Ecotec in Norway’s growing recycling market.”

This year has also seen additional welcomed partnerships with distributors Impianti Industriali Srl and WR57 in Northern and Central Italy. These distributors will offer Terex Ecotec’s full, comprehensive range of recycling equipment, spare parts and servicing.

Terex Ecotec’s regional sales manager, Thomas Coulter, said, “We see fantastic growth potential for Terex Ecotec in Italy, proven by the recent signings of Impianti and WR57. Both companies match our requirements of having strong industry experience along with a skilled and dedicated team of people committed to service and product support. We welcome them to the Terex Ecotec family.”

Terex Ecotec is honoured to receive this award, “We are absolutely delighted to have been awarded the Industry Excellence Award. It’s testament to our drive and ambition to design and manufacture truly unique machines which not only process traditional waste types but provide new solutions to the ever-changing world of material recycling.”

Terex Ecotec has had a cutting-edge manufacturing site in Campsie, Northern Ireland for the design and manufacturing of products since 2019. The facility was part of a huge £12m long-term investment by the company. The manufacturing of heavy equipment for waste management and recycling and conveyors is housed in this 105,000ft2 site. The site was expanded further in 2020 with the completion of a large capacity shed. The expanded 30,000ft2, with high lifting capabilities, manufacturers bulk material handling and product stockpiling equipment. In 2022, the final stage was completed with an additional 30,000ft2 shed.

With a world class parts facility located in Dungannon, Northern Ireland offering automated storage and retrieval systems, barcode scanning and a full onsite inventory of parts, Terex Ecotec is ideally placed to further expand its winning portfolio.

Tony Devlin, Business Line Director for Terex Ecotec, elaborated further, “The investment of this size in a new facility will help us increase our foothold in the recycling and waste management sector and ensure that we continue to push boundaries in the global market. It is an exciting development for Terex Ecotec, and we look forward to the new facility playing an instrumental part of our growth and success.”

After a long hiatus following COVID-19, Terex Ecotec has started returning to trade shows in Europe and the UK, firstly IFAT: the world’s leading trade fair for water, sewage, waste and raw materials management in Munich, Germany. Presenting its products and innovations to the booming environmental industry the TBG 530T high speed shredder was without doubt the star of the show.

Secondly, Terex Ecotec gave a live demonstration of the TWH 228 waste handler, through dealer Warwick Ward Machinery Ltd at this year’s RWM & Letsrecycle Live trade show. With an engine output of 173HP, Ecotec’s TWH 228 is one of the top recycling models in the world. Designed for high load capacity and reach, with dual circuit hydraulics, this model performs precise, slewing rotations.

Terex Ecotec is a committed green company “Making Waste Work” and strives to produce robust, ergonomic, environmental products. Moving away from fossil fuels, the majority of the Ecotec product range is available in an electric variant, offering the customer all the benefits of the Ecotec product combined with the additional benefits of the electric drive namely reduced noise, emissions and maintenance.

New product development is integral to business development which is evident with the eagerly awaited TBG 530T high speed shredder launched earlier this year and the new Phoenix 2100T tracked trommel screen coming in early 2023. The latest development and the smallest shredder to date is the TDS 815 compact shredder, with the prototype currently undergoing rigorous testing in the field before launch next year.

Terex Ecotec employs an aggressive research and development philosophy, constantly designing innovative new products, driving towards a circular economy. Inhouse engineering experts are constantly monitoring the market and designing ingenious products to help customers in primary waste recycling, wood processing and composting industries.
