In anticipation of growth in East Africa’s economy, Terex Trucks has partnered with LEC. The leading heavy equipment supplier will take charge of the delivery and offer support to the Scottish manufacturer’s rigid haulers across Madagascar, Mauritius, and the Seychelles.
Didier Jauffret, executive director at LEC, said: “We are very proud to now count Terex Trucks in our portfolio, especially with the existing potential market for the rigid dump trucks in Madagascar, where the mines are seeking out this type of equipment.”
With more than a decade of experience and customers active in a number of sectors, LEC has a strong distribution channel in the Western Indian Ocean region. Headquartered in Mauritius, the company prides itself on providing cost effective solutions with a dedicated and professional aftermarket service.
LEC will offer clients all four of Terex Trucks’ rigid haulers – TR45, TR60, TR70, and TR100 – that provide payloads from 41-91t. The machines provide a good balance of power, effective gearing and optimum weight distribution to move material efficiently over the toughest terrains. The robust, proven performers also deliver excellent rimpull, thanks to a resilient drivetrain and rear axle configuration.
The nitrogen-over-oil type struts ensure a smoother ride, reduce operator fatigue and maximise production. Together, the front disc brakes and rear multi-disc, oil cooled brakes, deliver safe productive operation, while the transmission retarder decreases brake wear, reducing ownership costs and increasing machine availability.
LEC will be assisting customers with its sub-dealer, MaterAuto.
Guy Wilson, global sales director at Terex Trucks, commented: “We are delighted to announce the appointment of Leal Equipements as our new dealer covering Mauritius, Madagascar, and the Seychelles. LEC is a great addition to our network who will improve our customer service in these territories and the team at Terex Trucks is looking forward to working closely with them.”
