Hills Machinery earned the annual Top Dealer Award from Terex Trucks this year.

Hills Machinery, which has eight locations across the Carolinas and about 130 employees, sold more articulated haulers than any other dealer globally, Terex Trucks says. Hills Machinery also significantly increased market share in its territories.

“Since Volvo Construction Equipment took ownership of Terex Trucks, there has been huge investment in the products and they’re now producing great articulated dump trucks,” says Jim Hills, co-founder and president of Hills Machinery. “The latest trucks are robust, reliable and perform well in whatever conditions you put them in. They are good value for money, simple to operate and easy to maintain.

“All of this, together with a generous warranty and both ours and Terex Trucks’ strong commitment to product support and parts availability, makes a very attractive offer for customers,” Hills adds. “I think that’s why we’ve seen such a strong increase in demand for the trucks.”

According to Terex Trucks, it ships a significant proportion of its articulated haulers – the TA300 and TA400 – from its Motherwell facility in Scotland to customers across North America. Hills Machinery, which represents Terex Trucks in North and South Carolina, took a considerable number of trucks in 2020 to meet customer demand, resulting in a market share improvement of about 80 percent in its territories, Terex Trucks says.

Hills Machinery began selling, renting, leasing and servicing the TA300 and TA400 in 2018.

“North America is an important market for us,” says Robert Franklin, sales and marketing director of the Americas at Terex Trucks, whose North American network consists of about 40 dealers. “We want to grow our business in the region and reach new customers, which is exactly what Hills Machinery is helping us achieve. The team has excellent market, product and application knowledge, and they do whatever it takes to satisfy customer needs. They are committed to delivering the best products together with the best customer support, and I think that’s the secret to their success.”

Also in 2020, Hills Machinery became IRock Crushers’ exclusive dealer in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. Eagle Crusher also expanded its partnership with Hills Machinery late this year by extending Hills Machinery’s reach into Georgia.
