A US manufacturer of machinery and lift equipment for construction and infrastructure projects. Its equipment has been used in home demolitions and in the construction of Israel's separation wall, the Tel Aviv–Jerusalem railway, and military checkpoints.
Terex, headquartered in Westport, Connecticut, manufactures machinery and lift equipment for a variety of industries, including construction, infrastructure, quarrying, energy, and transportation.
According to Who Profits, Terex equipment has been used to facilitate the expansion of illegal Israeli settlement infrastructure. For example, trucks manufactured by the company were used in the construction of the Tel Aviv–Jerusalem railway, which cuts through the occupied Palestinian territory.
Track excavators manufactured by the company have also been used to demolish Palestinians' homes in several locations in the occupied West Bank.
Additionally, Terex vehicles have been used in the construction of Israel's illegal West Bank separation wall. Lighting fixtures manufactured by the company are installed in at least three nearby military checkpoints in the occupied West Bank, as documented by Who Profits.
