Terex Trucks withdraws from CONEXPO over virus concerns

All business areas within the Volvo Group have jointly decided to not attend CONEXPO-Con/Agg 2020 due to the outbreak and continuing concerns relating to the Coronavirus Covid-19.

With California joining Washington State and Florida in declaring a state of emergency to contain the spread of the novel Coronavirus Covid-19, all business areas within the Volvo Group have decided to withdraw from participating in next week’s CONEXPO exhibition in Las Vegas, Nevada. This includes all relevant Volvo business areas: Volvo Construction Equipment, Terex Trucks, Volvo Penta, Volvo Financial Services, Volvo Trucks, Mack Trucks and SDLG. Terex Trucks was acquired by Volvo Construction Equipment in 2014.

“We are great supporters of CONEXPO, and despite being in advanced preparations for this year’s event, we believe it is the right thing to do to withdraw at this late stage,” says Paul Douglas, Managing Director of Terex Trucks. “Our first concern is the wellbeing of employees, customers and the wider public. It’s very disappointing not to be attending but our first priority is health and safety. Given this, it is with reluctance that it has been decided not to participate in this year’s show.”
