Terex Power has been awarded a $3 million government contract to supply the United States Army Corp of Engineers with 427 of its RL 4000 portable, trailer-mounted, generator-powered floodlight systems. The Terex Light Equipment Division of Rock Hill SC will be in charge of manufacturing the equipment to fulfill this order.
According to the government specifications, the portable light towers to be purchased must include generators, be towable, and have a 30-foot extendable and retractable reach with lock-in positions. In order to win the contract, the light construction division had to meet or surpass evaluation factors pertaining to quality, production capacity, delivery schedule, and product support.
While Terex has received government contracts before, this is the Light Equipment division's largest contract to date.
