Jordan Contractor orders 50 Machines from Terex Trucks

With a partnership that dates back to the 1970s, Jordan’s largest phosphate mining contractor, Comedat, called on Terex Trucks once again to add 50 machines to its fleet for work mining phosphate in the north and south of the Middle Eastern country.

Motherwell, United Kingdom – "Terex Trucks delivers excellent performing machines," says Sameh Dababneh, CEO of Comedat. "From experience no matter how hard I push the trucks they keep on going, so when it came to expanding my fleet there was only one company I could look to."

Established almost five decades ago, Comedat is a family-run business. One of the leading companies in phosphate mining, Comedat is the owner of one of the largest fleets of Terex Trucks in the world, with close to 120 machines consisting of a mixture of 91 t (100 short t) capacity TR100s and 55 t (60 short t) capacity TR60s.

The Terex machines are required to work day and night, as Comedat runs 24 hours, seven days a week and 365 days a year. The trucks — which, according to Terex Trucks, provide excellent rimpull thanks to a resilient drivetrain and rear axle configuration — are used to haul overburden removal, while others descend 56 m below the surface to carry phosphate.   

An avid believer of standardising, Dababneh adds: “We’ve been with Terex Trucks for years and we’re still as happy as we were with the trucks on the day we first became customers. The trucks are simple, reliable and durable. It’s a tough running vehicle so it’s very forgiving and works with very basic maintenance.
