Terex officially opens new £12m site in Northern Ireland
Terex, the global manufacturer of lifting and material processing solutions, has unveiled its new £12m facility in Campsie, Londonderry.
The new 105,000 square foot facility manufactures heavy equipment for Terex Ecotec (waste management and recycling) and mobile conveyors, creating 100 jobs for the local region. Manufacturing at Terex Campsie is well underway and almost 40% of the initial 100 jobs have been filled.
Kieran Hegarty, President of Terex Materials Processing, said, “As people, businesses and governments become more aware of their carbon footprint we’re seeing enormous growth in demand for environmental equipment globally. We’re excited that Terex Campsie has started producing equipment to cater for this market—the type of equipment capable of processing construction and demolition waste or everyday waste from your home—to be exported all over the world.”
“We have a fantastic local team now in place and trained in our world-class manufacturing processes. But we don’t stop there. Terex has ambitious plans for growth and just as important as this new facility and filling our current vacant positions is in developing and retaining our people so we have the skills needed to deliver our ambitious growth plans.”
“We’ve worked closely with schools and colleges at our other Northern Ireland locations and this work is extremely important to ensure a strong future talent pool. Whether you are an apprentice, an engineer or recent graduate, interested in engineering, manufacturing, finance, sales and marketing, administration, or human resources, Terex provides a structured career path with the ability to grow, innovate and help shape the future of our company and industry.”
Terex has nine sites in Northern Ireland—across Dungannon, Omagh, Ballymoney, Lurgan, employing over 1,800 people.
