Terex and ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex announce strategic alliance
Genie® lift equipment to be official lift of complex
Terex Corporation (NYSE:TEX), the manufacturer of Genie® branded products, signed a long-term strategic alliance with ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex to be the official lift equipment provider to the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.
Genie® lift equipment provides solutions to ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex for a variety of application needs on a daily basis. Genie® scissor and boom lifts are regularly used as elevated platforms for cameras and camera operators to tape and broadcast sporting events at the sports complex. The lifts are also used to perform ongoing maintenance at the 255-acre site. Additionally, Terex® branded light towers will light up popular runDisney races that take place throughout the theme parks each year.
“ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex already uses Genie lift equipment,” said Matt Fearon, president, Terex Aerial Work Platforms (AWP). “By being the official lift equipment provider to ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, it allows us to highlight the various applications and capabilities of our quality equipment at a variety of events across the complex.”
“We are excited to have Terex as a new sponsor at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex,” said Tom Wolber, senior vice president, Disney Sports Enterprises and Downtown Disney. “Terex produces an outstanding line of lift products, which are key instruments in the sports industry, and this relationship helps us ensure that our athletes, teams and coaches have the very best experience at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.”
To commemorate the sponsorship, Terex has custom painted a new Genie® S-60X telescopic boom as a way to inaugurate the alliance. It is a one-of-a-kind airbrushed boom by renowned artist Tim Norris. The boom’s unique sports-themed motif is interwoven with special Disney-inspired details that highlight the relationship between Terex and ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. The boom will be on display at the sports complex when not in use.
“We are thrilled about this new relationship with ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex and look forward to working with them in the upcoming years,” said Fearon. “Our new alliance is one of the many exciting opportunities we have ahead of us to strengthen the Genie® and Terex® brands globally.”
