Terex Corporation (Terex), a global manufacturer of lifting and material processing solutions, today welcomed NI Secretary of State, Brandon Lewis to its manufacturing facility in Campsie.
In 2019 Terex announced a new facility in Campsie as part of a £12m investment. The 105,000 square foot facility manufactures heavy equipment for Terex Ecotec (waste management and recycling) and Terex Conveying Systems mobile conveyors. It has manufactured and exported over 50 machines globally since opening in 2019.
Now just one year on Terex has made a further significant investment with the completion of the second stage of the Campsie facility, which includes a large capacity shed offering an additional 30,000 square foot with high lifting capabilities. It will be home to ProStack, which manufactures bulk material handling and product stockpiling equipment and will support the ongoing growth and development of Terex Ecotec’s ever expanding product portfolio.
Secretary of State Brandon Lewis MP said:
“I am delighted to be here today to visit Terex’s site in Campsie and to open their new manufacturing facility as part of their ambitious plans for growth and expansion.
“The advanced manufacturing and engineering sector is a key sector in Northern Ireland. It is encouraging to hear this morning how Terex continues to build their operations in Northern Ireland as part of its ambitious global growth strategy.
“The UK-Japan Free Trade Agreement secures additional benefits beyond the EU-Japan trade deal and will give UK companies exporting to Japan, such as Terex a competitive advantage in a number of areas.
"Northern Ireland businesses are continuing to build on the strong £3.6 million agricultural export relationship we currently have with Japan.”
Kieran Hegarty, President Terex Materials Processing commented, “Our objective is to be recognised as a leading global manufacturer in the waste management, recycling and mobile conveying sectors. Our Terex Campsie facility will enable us to realise this ambition with a local team now in place and trained in our world-class manufacturing processes. Northern Ireland is an extremely important manufacturing location for Terex and these facilities deliver significant economic benefits to each of the local areas where we operate, and Northern Ireland as a whole.”
