8 Jun 16 Terex Construction has named Satpal Sokhi as the new head of engineering for its UK manufacturing facility in Coventry. And it has given him quite a challenge.

Satpal Sokhi, who has worked for Terex for 13 years with Terex, will oversee several corporate initiatives to reshape the company’s engineering department and implement a new product strategy for the Coventry site.

In short, he has been told he must simultaneously cut costs, improve quality and introduce product innovations.

Apparently undaunted, Mr Sokhi said: “I am proud to be part of a team which continues to lead the industry in both R&D and technological innovation. As one of the world’s leading equipment solutions providers, Terex is a market leader for many of its products.

“In the coming months, I look forward to driving further process change and introducing a new phase of product facelifts for our compact equipment range.”

Gregg Horne, general manager at Terex Construction’s Coventry facility, said: “We’re confident that Satpal will make a hugely positive impact, bringing even greater value to our current procedures with his skilled perspective.”
