Terex recently was named to Forbes Magazine’s JUST 100 list, which recognizes the best corporate citizens in America.
“Citizenship is a core value at Terex Utilities. We strive to be socially responsible to our customers, team members, and communities,” said Jim Lohan, vice president of marketing and sales, Terex Utilities, whose hybrid technology helped its parent company earn a spot on the Forbes list.
The list is compiled from a survey of 50,000 Americans by JUST Capital, a nonprofit created by investor Paul Tudor Jones II. Publicly traded companies in the U.S. were ranked against their peers in 32 industries on criteria such as fair pay, equal opportunity employment, job creation, workplace safety, and respect for employees.
“Terex Utilities congratulates three customers—Dominion, Exelon, and Public Service Enterprise Group—investor-owned utilities that were also recognized on the JUST 100 list in the utility industry,” said Lohan.
Terex was ranked No. 2 in the machinery industry by JUST Capital. Excellent product attributes, especially clean technology and eco design, were considered Terex strengths. “Terex was specifically recognized for its green solutions provided to the utility industry, including the HyPower Hybrid system, a plug-in hybrid solution for digger derricks and aerial devices,” said Lohan. “Terex Utilities is thrilled its eco-friendly designs contributed to the overall Terex JUST performance ranking.”
HyPower IM, a recently introduced system from Terex Utilities, continues in this same vein. It is an idling-mitigation system that reduces fuel usage and exhaust emissions at an affordable price, making it more accessible to many utility equipment owners.
