On the opening day of last week's inter airport Europe, in Munich, Germany, vehicle supplier Terberg DTS (UK) Ltd. announced that it had placed a major order with exhibitor JBT AeroTech.
The provision of eight of JBT's Commander Loaders are scheduled to go into service for a major UK company.
This substantial multi-vehicle order, with a contract value in excess of £1.6 million, will see Terberg DTS deliver the JBT Commando Loaders in early 2014 to two different locations in the UK as part of a long-term contract with the end customer.
Inclusive of this contract, factory trained Terberg DTS staff will be supporting the JBT Commander Loaders on a 24/7/365 basis, and as Terberg DTS’s managing director Alisdair Couper said: “The JBT Commander Loaders are recognised to be a very highly specified product that fully satisfies the end user’s stringent health and safety requirements. During the contract negotiations, JBT and Terberg DTS have worked closely together with the end customer, to ensure that the final product specification meets their detailed contract requirements.”
Delivery of the equipment is scheduled to be completed in the fourth quarter
The company's JBT AeroTech business has been awarded contracts by China Southern Airlines for airport ground support equipment totaling $6.4 million.
