Terex AWP Now Produces Genie Telehandlers in Oklahoma City | Construction News

Terex Aerial Work Platforms (AWP), a business segment of Terex Corporation, is now manufacturing Genie products at Terex's factory in Oklahoma City, Okla. The location will manufacture Genie telehandlers and potentially other products as the market warrants.

“We have made a long-term strategic shift to our manufacturing footprint to move production closer to our North American customers,” said Matt Fearon, president, Terex AWP. “By leveraging existing Terex facilities, we are able to take advantage of a lower overall cost structure while adding capacity as we continue to grow our Genie telehandler product portfolio.”

The Oklahoma City manufacturing facility has 700,000 sq. ft. under roof and more than 100 total acres. More than 260 employees work at the location, and Terex AWP is currently hiring to fill new positions.

Oklahoma City is a prime location for reducing supplier and finished-good transportation costs and is centrally located in the United States. That will allow Terex AWP to meet its customers’ needs in a quicker and cost effective way.

Adding the new manufacturing location allows the company’s Washington State plants to focus on new-product development, production, and meeting current demand. Redmond, Wash., will remain the administrative and research and development headquarters. Moses Lake, Wash., will continue to grow with Genie's line of large boom lifts.

“We are continuing to focus on product availability, leveraging our operational strengths and emphasizing our flexibility,” said Fearon. “We are very excited to be a part of the Oklahoma City community and look forward to growing our team member base.”
