Terex Trucks appoints new Angolan distributor


By Antony Kiganda | Construction Review Online December 14, 2016

Terex Trucks has appointed Auto Maquinaria as its official distributor of articulated and rigid dump trucks in Angola.

AMQA, headquartered in Luanda, will also provide factory-approved parts and other essential after-market care services to customers throughout the country.

Pleased with the addition of Terex Trucks’ machines to the company’s portfolio, Adriano David, sales director at AMQA, revealed the appointment means its hauler offering to customers in Angola now comes with an increased payload. David explained:

“The partnership with Terex Trucks is a great opportunity for AMQA to establish its position as the leading supplier of transport solutions to the mining industry in Angola. During the years of the global commodity boom, AMQA delivered a significant number of ADTs to mines in Angola and even became the best seller of articulated haulers in the entire world in 2007.

However, with the increased depth of mines, many operations switched to the use of rigid dump trucks, which wasn’t a product we had to offer to customers – until now.”
Part of the NORS Group – which is one of the world’s largest suppliers of industrial equipment for construction and infrastructure – AMQA was chosen to be Terex Trucks’ official distributor in Angola because of its experience and knowledge of the market.

Guy Wilson, EMEA’s sales and marketing director at Terex Trucks, commented: “AMQA has made a name for itself as a trusted and established distributor for construction equipment across various sectors of the Angolan market. We are confident that this appointment will mean Terex Trucks is well represented in the years to come, where we anticipate new and exciting opportunities in Angola’s diamond, gold and iron mining sectors.”

The durability and efficiency of Terex Trucks’ equipment is a good match for the demanding climate and conditions of the Angolan mining industry. To complement its existing range of products, AMQA will add all four Terex Trucks rigid haulers, the TR45, TR60, TR70, and TR100, as well as its TA250, TA300 and TA400 articulated dump trucks.
