Rendering of proposed Terberg Taylor Americas Group, LLC facility.
Terberg Taylor Americas Group, LLC, a joint venture between Royal Terberg Group and Taylor Group of Companies, will establish a manufacturing facility in Lowndes County, Mississippi and build up a distribution network for the sales, after-sales and rental of Terberg terminal tractors. The project is a $15.9 million corporate investment and will create 90 jobs. The first terminal tractor is expected to be built in the third quarter of 2023.
Terberg Taylor Americas Group’s new operations are based on the cooperation of the two family-owned businesses, which has grown into a successful partnership. Currently, Terberg’s Special Vehicles division has factories in the Netherlands and Malaysia. Taylor Group of Companies has several facilities throughout the United States.
The facility will be built as a scalable design so that it may continually meet production demands. In time, various Terberg models will be built here in accordance with customer specifications. The Terberg Miami office will also become part of the joint venture to coordinate the sales and after-sales of Terberg Taylor Americas Group.
