Terberg Taylor Americas Group- Royal Terberg Group Plan Lowndes County, Mississippi, Specialty Vehicle Plant

Specialized vehicle manufacturer Terberg Taylor Americas Group will build a hauling vehicle production facility in Lowndes County, Mississippi. The $15.9 million project is expected to create 90 jobs.

The new operation, a joint venture with Royal Terberg Group of the Netherlands, will build up a distribution network for the sales, after sales and rental of the Terberg models of terminal tractors. The first terminal tractor is expected to be built in the third quarter of 2023.

“Taylor has enjoyed our relationship with Terberg. We are excited to bring these products and manufacturing to the U.S. and Mississippi. We look forward to this great adventure with these two great companies coming together as one in this joint venture. There has been tremendous help from Joe Max Higgins, his team at Golden Triangle Development LINK and the Mississippi Development Authority. This facility will be a state-of-the-art factory where the best terminal tractors in the world will be built,” Robert Taylor, President and COO, Taylor Group of Companies said.

The Mississippi Development Authority (MDA) is providing assistance for site preparation and infrastructure needs as an incentive. Lowndes County also is assisting with the project.

“Family-owned businesses are at the heart of Mississippi’s economy. The Taylor Group of Companies international partnership with Royal Terberg Group is the best representation of two-family businesses sharing the same core values and coming together to build stronger communities and create exciting opportunities for Mississippi’s workforce,” added MDA Deputy Executive Director Laura Hipp.

Terberg Special Vehicles manufactures special vehicles such as terminal tractors, Yard tractors, RoRo tractors and road/rail tractors which are used in ports, heavy industry, distribution centers, railway shunting yards, tunneling sites and airports.

“The entire GTR team are pleased that the Terberg/Taylor team has selected the area for their new truck plant. Anytime you can get an international company that is a worldwide leader in their industrial sector forming a joint venture with an iconic U. S. company like Taylor “Big Red” you have a winner! It has been an absolute pleasure to work on this project, and now we are ready to build,” added Joe Max Higgins, CEO of Golden Triangle Development LINK.
