13 questions with Terex MPS’s Russ Burns

By |  March 28, 2023

Yanik: Is the trend right now portable or stationary equipment?

Burns: I think there’s still a little bit of both. We’ve seen more folks considering the portable piece, but there are a lot of known quarries and pits that are going to be operating for a long time. They still have many years of service ahead of them. Maybe they’re getting to a point where they’ve got to update their equipment or they’re looking at increasing production. There are plenty of options to go either way. So the ability to meet your needs is the driving factor.

Yanik: Do you have a sense of the number of portable crushing and screening equipment manufacturers in the market these days? Do you see that number growing?

Burns: There are more players in the industry. Customers are trying to add production, and contract crushers are looking to get into the game. Certainly, there has been a high level of demand – especially in the last couple of years, as the demand for plants and static components has been high. That seems like a good space to be in.
