Terex Construction announces graduate appointment

Published:  04 September, 2015

Terex Construction has announced the appointment of Sam Langley to the role of manufacturing engineer at its UK manufacturing facility in Coventry.

A recent Harper Adams University graduate, Mr Langley previously undertook a 65-week internship programme at Terex as part of his degree programme. Taking up his full-time position later this month, he is the first member of staff to join the Coventry-based firm following completion of the company’s practical student training scheme.

Paul Macpherson, sales and marketing director at Terex Construction’s Coventry facility, said: “As part of an ongoing initiative to inspire the next generation of construction professionals, we’ve worked in close partnership with Harper Adams University over the past few years to offer practical placement opportunities for off-road vehicle design course students.

“Sam was one of the first students who undertook a placement at Terex Construction, so we’re delighted to welcome him back as a full-time member of staff now that he has completed his degree. Dedicated, enthusiastic and passionate, we’re confident that he will be a key part of the site dumper design team going forwards.”

Mr Langley added: “With such strong heritage, a loyal distributor network and great product innovations, joining the Terex team is an exciting career step for me.

“It was a huge honour to work with the wider team while undertaking my university placement year at the company’s Coventry facility, so I couldn’t wait to apply for a permanent role following graduation.”
