Our objective was to have our own subsidiaries in the centre of Europe, in the UK, Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium. Markets in other countries worldwide would be served by independent distributors. We have now realised that objective, step by step. Additionally, we realised that to serve customers in South East Asia , a rapidly developing market, we would have to assemble vehicles locally. This resulted in a joint venture, Terberg Tractors Malaysia. That brought us closer to our customers, reduced transport and labour costs, and avoided import duties.
In 2009 we set up a sales office in Dubai to coordinate the sales of vehicles and spares in the Middle East and Africa. Later, we followed the same strategy when we opened an office in Miami to target markets in the Americas and the Pacific region.
Terberg vehicles are now in use in over 100 countries. We would like to thank our employees for their hard work and commitment, and our distributors and Terberg subsidiaries for their professional support of our products. But most of all we would like to thank our customers for their confidence in our vehicles and the Terberg organisation. We will do our utmost to continue to offer first-class service and support, now and in the future.
George Terberg, Chairman of the Board of Directors Terberg Group
