Cookstown based CDE Global has won a major deal in Kuwait to supply a sand washing plant for a construction company.
Speaking from Kuwait during a visit to the company’s latest sand-washing plant, Jonathan Bell said: “This is a significant order to supply CDE’s M4500 modular sand washing plant to Associated Construction Company [ASCO] in Kuwait.
“CDE Global is an impressive ambassador for Northern Ireland’s industry excellence and is now the leading provider of wet-processing equipment.
“In 2014, the company announced a £3m investment to roll out an ambitious export strategy with the support of Invest Northern Ireland and during this visit I have seen first-hand the results of this strategy,” he added.
“CDE Global has also recently been shortlisted as a finalist in the prestigious Bauma 2016 Innovation Award in Munich in April. I wish them the best of luck and hope they bring back another award that Northern Ireland can be proud of.”
Ruchin Garg, CDE Global Business Development Manager for the Middle East, led the visit around the ASCO site. He added: “The CDE M-Series is a very flexible offering of feeding, screening, sand washing and stockpiling equipment to process a range of materials including sand and gravel, crushed rock, scalpings and mineral ores like iron ore.
“In the Middle East’s growing construction sector, our integrated mobile washing products, the most advanced available in the region, have become a solution of choice for customers wishing to gain a competitive edge through enhanced product quality and operational efficiencies. There is also significant scope to develop our operations in the construction and demolition waste recycling sector in this market.
“ASCO’s renewed trust in our products and customer service is yet another testament to the un-matched reputation for quality and professionalism CDE Global enjoys all over the world.”
