And Telestack in Omagh which also manufacture material handling machinery are creating 25 new jobs.
They too, are hosting a jobs fair in an effort to fill the vacancies.
Both firms have continued to enjoy major success with order books filling up with new customers from around the world, reaffirming Tyrone’s reputation as a global leader in the material handling equipment sector.
Newly elected West Tyrone MP, Barry McElduff hailed the new jobs.
“This is fantastic news and very positive. It’s a reflection of the central role which Omagh and Tyrone is playing in terms of engineering solutions and I am always struck by the strength of the sector,” he said.
“I would like to congratulate Terex and Telestack for creating these jobs and the spin-off work which it will create for smaller firms.”
