50 more Terex Trucks rigid haulers for mining contractor
Longstanding customer COMEDAT has added 50 more Terex Trucks rigid dump trucks to its big fleet.
With a partnership that dates back to the 1970s, Jordan’s largest phosphate mining contractor, COMEDAT, has called on Terex Trucks once again to add 50 machines to its fleet to be deployed at phosphate mines in the north and south of the Middle Eastern country.
Established almost 50 years ago, COMEDAT is a family-run business, specialising in phosphate mining. The company is said to be one of the largest fleet owners of Terex Trucks in the world, with close to 120 machines comprising a mixture of 100-tonne capacity TR100s and versatile TR60s. No stranger to the Scotland-built products, the company trusts Terex Trucks rigid dump trucks to maximise efficiency in its opencast operations.
“Terex Trucks delivers excellent performing machines,” says Sameh Dababneh, CEO of COMEDAT. “From experience, no matter how hard I push the trucks they keep on going, so when it came to expanding my fleet, there was only one company I could look to.”
“We’ve been with Terex Trucks for years and we’re still as happy as we were with the trucks on the day we first became a customer. The trucks are simple, reliable and durable. It’s a tough running vehicle so it’s very forgiving and works with very basic maintenance,” adds Dababneh, a firm believer of standardising.
The machines operate 24/7 throughout the year. They are used for overburden removal, while others descend 56 metres below the surface to carry phosphate.
