Materials washing specialist CDE Global has announced that it has increased its product assembly space by more than 30%.
This equates an additional 60 machines every year.
CDE Global designs and manufactures materials washing and classification equipment with applications in a variety of sectors including sand and aggregates, construction waste recycling, mining, specialist industrial sands and environmental.
Its global design headquarters is in Northern Ireland and it has regional offices in India, Brazil and North America.
CDE said it had funded the expansion following an upturn in the global construction materials industry and an increase in demand around the world for its range of classifying equipment for quarrying, mining and recycling applications.
Operations director Raymond Cooke commented: “It was an exciting year for our company in 2015 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. “
He added: “This is just one of several significant decisions that we have taken in 2015. 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.”
