Mitch Ely began the role of National Operations Manager for Terex AWP in 2000 after more than a decade of experience as a technician in the hire industry.

His role at Skyreach introduced Mitch to the elevating work platform industry, and in 1998 he moved to Terex AWP, starting out in field services before being promoted to National Service Manager in 1999 and National Operations Manager in 2000.

Responsible for all of Operations at Terex AWP, Mitch oversees engineering, parts, service, training and quality control. Around two-thirds of the team report to Mitch, who says, “Our team members are what makes it all happen.”

He finds satisfaction in seeing the end result of his team’s efforts, when the best cutting-edge technology becomes available to customers.
