Enterprise Minister Arlene Foster has officially opened a new manufacturing facility at CDEnviro, following a £2.7million expansion by the Cookstown firm.

CDEnviro manufactures a range of equipment for the sewage and waste water treatment industries. The company recently trebled its manufacturing capacity with the construction of a new state of the art facility in Co. Tyrone. Invest Northern Ireland offered CDEnviro assistance towards the build to enable it to expand into lucrative markets in Western Europe and Latin America.

Speaking at the official opening, Arlene Foster said: “CDEnviro has experienced considerable growth in the past two years and its expansion in Cookstown is very welcome news for the local community and wider economy.

“The 30 new positions the company is creating as a result of this expansion will support this ambitious export-focused firm’s continued commitment to innovation and product development and boost its ability to compete for new contracts in the UK and beyond.”

The company specialises in the design and manufacture of a range of screening, material washing and recycling machinery for international markets and has an extensive distribution network covering Europe, Australasia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East. It recently secured its first major contract in Brazil after participating on a trade mission organised by Invest NI.

Brendan McGurgan, Managing Director of CDEnviro, said: “CDEnviro is founded on an ethos of continuous improvement and building our new premises, with the support of Invest NI, has enabled us to further increase the level and quality of our production.

“Our continued export success is the driver for this expansion which will see a range of exciting new employment opportunities being created across a number of departments. Investments in marketing, research and training activities are also important components of our development strategy and will help us to build our reputation among key customers and explore opportunities for growth.”
