  • Terex teams in Changzhou (China) and Dungannon (Northern Ireland) team up to fight COVID-19 The Terex team in China sourced and sent thousands of protective face masks to Northern Ireland to help support the coronavirus situation. Once the masks reached Northern Ireland, a community group that is supporting local hospitals and care workers with PPE supplies collected them. Terex then donated more than 5,000 surgical masks to a COVID-19 community group who are supporting local hospitals and care workers with Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) supplies. Behind the scenes, a cross-functional team worked closely to make it all happen including MP and AWP HSE, MP Supply Chain, and EMEAR & APAC Logistics. This was a great example of cooperation across teams, disciplines, geographies and business segments.

Terex – Why Work With Us?



Welcome! Bienvenue ! Willkommen!

Diversity is about all of us, not just some of us. At Terex, our goal is to have a diverse, global workforce in an inclusive workplace that unleashes the talents of all team members. 

This is not just a “nice thing to do,” it’s a business imperative. By fully engaging our team members in “the Terex discussion,” we will all benefit from a broader spectrum of ideas and solutions that will satisfy our customers and lead to the achievement of our business goals.

Our diversity and inclusion focus is in three specific areas:

Our Workforce:       To increase and retain the demographic and skill diversity of our global workforce at all levels, with an emphasis on women and non-majorities in senior management 

Our Workplace:      To create an environment where our team members can reach their full potential in support of Terex goals 

The Marketplace:    To operate effectively with diverse customers, suppliers, and the communities we serve around the world.

By encouraging and maintaining a diverse and inclusive workplace, Terex will be the best place to work in our industry.


 John L. Garrison, Chairman and CEO, Terex Corporation

 

Our Values - The Terex Way

 

A Message From John Garrison:

There are six values that make up the Terex Way: Integrity, Respect, Improvement, Servant Leadership, Courage and Citizenship. While each of these is fairly easy to understand, I do believe that a brief explanation is appropriate to put them into context: 



  • Integrity: We never sacrifice integrity for profit. We are transparent in all our business dealings. We are accountable to our team members, customers and shareholders for achieving our goals while protecting our reputation and assets.
  • Respect: We provide a safe and healthy environment for our team members. We treat all people with dignity and respect. We value the differences in people’s thinking, backgrounds and cultures. We are committed to team member development.
  • Improvement: We continuously search for new and better ways of doing things, eliminating waste and continually improving. We challenge the status quo and require stretch goals. We work in teams across boundaries to achieve common goals.
  • Servant Leadership: We work to serve the needs of our customers, investors and team members. We nurture a culture of “chain of support” versus “chain of command.” We ask what we can do to help.
  • Courage: We have the personal and professional courage to do the right thing and take risks that may cause us to win as well as to fail periodically. We make decisions and take action. We don’t admonish failure, only failure to learn.
  • Citizenship: We’re good global, local and national citizens. We’re good stewards of the environment and the communities where we live. We participate in making the world we live in a better place.

In my view, if we live the values articulated above we will have tremendous success with our customers, suppliers, and eventually our investors. Our fellow team members will be the highest performing in our industry and we will be able to attract the best talent to continue our journey. This is the company Terex can be in the future.

Every company needs a compass to guide activities. The Terex Way provides that compass.

When I moved to Terex, I built up my experience and developed a passion for the service business which, for me, is very interesting. On the Global Service team, we analyze the businesses of service organizations around the world and their challenges operating in different markets. This insight is, in part, the basis for Terex strategy going forward.

 Along my career path, I have had the good fortune to work with people who believe in me and have given me opportunities to learn from them while providing me the freedom to take initiative. They have been great mentors to me.

 Living and working in different cultures with people of diverse backgrounds has also been very valuable. It has broadened my view of the world and my way of thinking. It has made me who I am and it has helped me to grow in my personal and professional life.


 

 

 

 

 

Team Member: Christal Dietzenbach, Site Director

I chose to go “Mechanical” engineering as there were several different directions that this degree could take me.  In college I completed a number of internships and a co-op that gave me a taste of process engineering, design engineering, and manufacturing engineering.  It was my internship that made me decide that manufacturing was the way I wanted to go.  I loved helping people refine their ideas and bring them to fruition.

I still continue to enhance my business skills. My advice to anyone entering into engineering, is to ensure that you have a business background, as well, so that you can understand how the decision-making process for design and related improvements impact the bottom line. 

I credit the teams that I have lead in the past for where I am today.  Development of your team and those around you is a critical aspect of success.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Terex (Redmond, WA) in December 2018.

    Interview

    They seemed to know me before I walked in the door. They knew what my skills were and all I had to do was answer some detailed questions about what I learned from my past experiences. I was told what I was going to be doing day of interview.
