Company boosts headquarters assembly space by a third following upturn in global markets
CDE Global say they have increased their product assembly space at Cooks town, Co. Tyrone, by 32% to allow for the production of 60 additional machines every year.
The expansion, which has been funded by CDE following an upturn in the global construction materials industry, is in response to an increase in demand around the world for the company’s range of washing and classifying equipment for quarrying, mining and recycling applications.
Strong foundations in key export markets are expected provide the basis for the company’s accelerated growth programmed during the next five years, with major growth in market share anticipated in the US, Canada, Latin America, Australia and Western Europe.
CDE Globe’s operations director, Raymond Cooke (left of photo), said: ‘2015 was an exciting year for our company and we have been looking ahead to our growth potential for the coming years.
‘We felt that it was a necessary step to develop a new assembly bay at our headquarters. This has increased our capacity by a third and allowed for an additional 60 machines to be exported every year.
‘We already have the largest campus in the world dedicated to the wet processing of minerals and our expansion plans will necessitate a further development of this infrastructure. We look forward to consolidating our position as number one in some of our well-established export markets.’
Mr. Cooke added: ‘Late last year we announced that we were doubling the size of our office in North America, where there is a significant opportunity for the company to increase its market share. Achieving significant growth in the US and Canada will form a major part of our global strategy for the coming five years.’
CDE Global recently announced their attendance at the Baume exhibition in Munich, Germany, from 11–17 April and will also attend AGG1 in Nashville (22–24 March) and Hill head in the UK (28–30 June).
A number of new products to the global quarrying, mining and C&D waste-recycling sectors will be launched at these three shows, with the company’s presence designed to highlight the closed-loop nature of its products – from feed system through to water-recycling and sludge-management equipment.
