Burlage joined TerraSource Global in 2014 as vice-president of service and strategy, after 14 years within the portfolio of Hillenbrand Inc., TerraSource Global’s parent company.
“TerraSource Global was built from a heritage of quality, collaboration and trust created by three industry leaders,” Burlage said. “We’re expanding on that heritage today, ensuring that customers benefit from the full breadth of our expertise, crossing a wide range of industries, applications and geographies.”
Burlage succeeds Mark Kohler, who announced his retirement in 2015.
Also in 2015, TerraSource Global enhanced its sales and service processes across its global footprint. The expansion includes the opening of new manufacturing and procurement facilities in Wuxi, China, and a warehouse and field service hub in Russia, complementing existing facilities in the United States, Canada, India and Sweden.
“The industries we serve are rapidly evolving, and TerraSource has made tremendous progress over the past year in our strategic initiatives to stay ahead of our customers’ needs,” Burlage said. “We are well-positioned to help customers succeed whenever and wherever they need us. I’m excited for the opportunity to lead TerraSource Global in the next stage of supporting our customers and growth.”
Eric Knock has been appointed interim general manager – parts and service, taking on Burlage’s former executive management role for the company’s parts and service business unit. Knock formerly served as the director of sales operations.
TerraSource Global unites three market leaders in materials handling and size reduction – Gundlach Crushers, Jeffrey Rader and Pennsylvania Crusher.
