Terex Aerial Work Platforms (AWP), a leading global manufacturer of Genie aerial lifts, will open the doors to its new Redmond facility in December. Already located in Redmond, the manufacturer will consolidate buildings to provide more than 100,000 square feet of work space for its 400-plus team members. This move extends the deep history of the Genie team in the Northwest, as the company was started in Kirkland in 1966.

The transition will take place in series of three moves, during December. All contact information will remain the same, except for the new address which will be 6464 185th Ave. N.E.

“Bringing our extended team from multiple buildings into a single location has been a long-term goal for me and I look forward to finally seeing us together,” said Matt Fearon, president, Terex AWP. “This is an opportunity to work in closer proximity, improve communications and increase the speed with which we serve our customers.”

The new building will also serve as a focal point for visiting customers, featuring a pictorial Genie history timeline, which coincides with the brand’s 50th anniversary in 2016. The building will also house a guest lounge, a glass showroom filled with a variety of Genie equipment, a training room and an auditorium.
