Having recently purchased nine Terex Trucks TR100s during Intermat Paris, the ink was barely dry before Leadway Heavy Machinery (LHM) ordered a further 10 of the rigid haulers to be delivered to Myanmar.

Leadway Heavy Machinery (LHM) has ordered a total of 19 Terex Trucks TR100 rigid haulers having recently purchased 10 more units since Intermat Paris in April 2015.

LHM has been the official Terex Trucks dealer in Myanmar since 2013. Its affiliated company, Aung Hein Min (AHM), based in Yangon, provides sales, marketing and service solutions for Terex Trucks customers. The 19 TR100 rigid dump trucks will be used for jade mining in Myanmar, transporting earth, rock and jade.

“Firstly, the demand is there, and Terex Trucks understood our requirements for penetrating the rigid dump truck market,” said Jimmy-Chakart Seanchan, CEO of LHM. “In addition, the top management within Terex Trucks got fully involved in supporting us in the sale, including introducing flexible payment terms and a great aftersales service.”

The Terex Trucks TR100 rigid hauler delivers a robust performance in the steepest, deepest mines around the world. Its minimum maintenance needs and tough design make Terex Trucks’ TR100 ideal for working in the most demanding job sites in the ever-changing, tropical monsoon climate of Myanmar.

Established in 1996, Leadway Heavy Machinery is the official Terex Trucks dealership for Thailand and Myanmar. As well as Jade mining, Leadway is expanding into other sectors including dams and copper mines.

“After LHM’s successful launch of articulated dump trucks over the past two years, we’re anticipating great success for our partners in Myanmar as they break into the rigid dump truck market with 19 new TR100s,” said Sam Wyant, global sales and marketing director for Terex Trucks. “LHM is an invaluable partner in our dealer network, and together we’re looking forward to developing Terex Trucks’ position in this growing market.”

The TR100 rigid dump trucks are planned for delivery by the end of this year. Stay tuned as we document the journey from Motherwell, Scotland to the jade mines of Myanmar.
