TEREX - Machinery



Company History: In 1933, the Euclid Company was founded by the Armington brothers. Its success designing and building haul trucks later attracted the attention of General Motors, which purchased Euclid in 1953. GM’s “Euclid Division” developed and sold large equipment including over half the nation’s off-highway dump trucks.
The dominant performance of Euclid had a negative consequence, however, when the US Department of Justice brought an antitrust suit against GM, forcing it to stop manufacturing and selling off-highway trucks in the US for four years, and to divest parts of its Euclid business and the Euclid brand name.
GM coined the "Terex" name in 1970 from the Latin words "terra" (earth) and "rex" (king) for its construction equipment products and trucks not covered by the ruling. The remaining parts of the new Terex business produced crawlers, front-end loaders, and scrapers.
