Material handler producer Terex will build a new manufacturing facility in Derry, Northern Ireland. Total investment: EUR 14 million.
The 10 000 m2 facility will focus on the design, production and development of Terex Ecotec (waste management and recycling) and Terex Conveying Systems (mobile conveying) product lines.
‘The waste management, recycling and mobile conveying sectors are areas of significant growth and our objective is to be recognised as a leading global manufacturer in these areas,’ says Kieran Hegarty, president of Terex Materials Processing. ‘The new facility will enable us to realise this ambition.’
The Terex Ecotec product line has grown ‘significantly’ since it was established in 2014 as a strategic response to meet the specialised needs of customers in the emerging waste management and recycling sectors.
Terex Conveying Systems was established to respond to increasing demand for mobile conveying solutions which, as well as being complementary to existing core Terex Materials Processing segment crushing, screening and shredding equipment, will help enable Terex to enter the port and terminal industry.
Work is already underway at the Terex Campsie facility, and is planned to be operational later this year. The facility will initially create approximately 100 new jobs that include production operative roles, management and support roles in HR, operations and finance, as well as engineers.
