Global manufacturer of materials processing machinery and aerial work platforms, Terex Materials Processing (MP), has announced the acquisition of Canadian company ProAll, a specialist producer of mobile volumetric concrete mixers.

ProAll traces its history to the companies that were originally founded in the mid-1960s and were initially an importer of volumetric mixers in Canada, becoming over the years a major producer of volumetric mixer products for the North American and global. Today the company employs 170 people with a main production base in Olds, Alberta and a service and installation site in Keller, Texas.

The addition of the brand and expertise will allow Terex to expand its global presence in the concrete mixer space by joining Terex Advance, which manufactures front-discharge mixer trucks, and Terex Bid-Well, which manufactures pavers. rollers for bridge and canal works.

Volumetric mixers eliminate delivery time issues between a concrete plant and a job site. Where a conventional mixer truck can deliver within two to three hours from the factory, a volumetric mixer can deliver anywhere without worrying about material degradation or laying in the back of a mixer. Ingredient delivery makes it possible to manufacture multiple small batches to exact specifications from the same vehicle or to meet the requirements of multiple different jobs.

“ProAll will provide us with exciting opportunities to expand into new markets and increase our knowledge and market share in the mobile concrete pouring industry. We look forward to embarking on this adventure with our new colleagues in Alberta and Texas,” said Jason Talbot, Terex vice president and general manager, MPS and environment for the United States and Australia, at who the ProAll team will report.

“For the past 50 years, ProAll has been a leader in mobile concrete delivery,” said Larry Koop, co-owner and former general manager of ProAll. “It’s something we’re extremely proud of and one of the reasons we’re so excited to have the opportunity to be part of the Terex MP family. Terex MP’s existing resources will bring tremendous benefits and global opportunities to our existing team and I am delighted to see their hard work paying off.
