Terex Roadbuilding and Polaris Laboratories recently announced the implementation of the equipment manufacturer’s Managed Maintenance Fluid Analysis Program. The new program covers equipment from the manufacturer’s mobile concrete and asphalt lines, including slipform pavers, trimmers, asphalt pavers, cold planers, reclaimer/stabilizers and material transfer vehicles. The strategic alliance is expected to enhance both the customer service objectives and equipment reliability and productivity goals that both companies support.
“Terex focuses on producing quality capital equipment that delivers productivity, return on investment and cost-effectiveness that today’s value-conscious customer expects,” says Larry Meyer, Terex Roadbuilding senior director of customer service and support. “We believe the services Polaris can provide will be of tremendous support in continuing that focus.”
Brett Minges, Polaris vice president of sales, feels the new partnership will further the customer service and reliability goals both companies pursue. “We both work toward providing the customer with something more than the products we sell,” Minges says. “Value-added services, like fluid analysis, demonstrate our commitment and concern for their success. And the key to successful fluid analysis is utilizing the data to enhance machine uptime, improve reliability and increase profitability.”
Polaris Laboratories provides complete testing and analysis for oils, fuels, coolants and water-based fluids. Its customer base is diverse, with a heavy emphasis on the construction and off-highway equipment industries. “We are extremely excited to have Terex Roadbuilding on board,” Minges says. “Terex is a globally recognized corporation, and we are extremely honored with the opportunity to offer the Managed Maintenance Fluid Analysis Program to its customers worldwide.”
