POWERSCREEN, providers of mobile crushing, screening, and conveying equipment, have unveiled their new global headquarters headquarters in Dungannon, Co. Tyrone. Under the theme ‘Built to Last’, the revitalized facility was revealed to local stakeholders including First Minister of Northern Ireland Michelle O’Neill at an official ribbon cutting ceremony and celebration.

Speaking following a tour of the new facility, Ms O’Neill said: ‘Your new headquarters are really impressive. It’s a physical demonstration of your success, and a welcome statement of your future ambition. Your growth on this site since the original Powerscreen days is a testament to entrepreneurial spirit and resilience. You have been instrumental in growing an engineering cluster here. You have set the standard in terms of quality and product development, and you have been pioneers in research, development and innovation.’

Sean Loughran, Powerscreen business line director and general manager, said: ‘As pioneers in mobile crushing and screening, we've always believed in building not just equipment, but legacies. As Powerscreen approach 60 years of operating, we understand the value of durability and innovation. Our new headquarters isn't just bricks and mortar; it's a testament to our commitment to lasting excellence. Built to Last isn't just a strapline for us; it's a promise to our team members, our customers, and our community – a promise of enduring quality, reliability, and progress.’

 

The new headquarters on the Coalisland road includes a new 8,500ft2 state-of-the-art office space, a modern wellness centre to promote team member well-being, and a number of energy-saving enhancements aimed at reducing carbon emissions. The unveiling also represents the latest in a series of strategic investments by Terex to modernize their operations and bring their facilities into the digital age, such as the integration of robotic welding and automation systems to enhance efficiency and precision in manufacturing processes.

Additionally, the implementation of job tracking and digital shop floor information systems has streamlined workflow management, while data-capture technologies leverage valuable insights for continuous improvement and material-management systems to optimize inventory levels and reduce waste.

Peter Doherty, maintenance and facilities manager at Terex Dungannon, said: ‘The main building has been reimagined to create a state-of-the-art office space that reflects Powerscreen’s standing as a global market leader. As well as extending the footprint, the traditional cellular office accommodation has been replaced with open-plan spaces that have been carefully arranged around modern working arrangements and informal collaboration areas.’

Mr Doherty continued: ‘Additionally, the building fabric has been upgraded to improve thermal efficiency along with the use of low-energy fittings and products – reducing overall energy consumption in line with global Terex policy and targets to implement sustainable practices that minimize the environmental impact of our operations.’

Concluding, the First Minister said: ‘It is companies like Terex that put us (Northern Ireland) on the map and we are fortunate that you are located here. Your employment of thousands of people across the region is vital and we are proud to have you as a key part of the community.’
