Toomebridge-based SDC Trailers has secured a contract worth £3 million over the next two years.

And, in even more good news for the company, branded as Europe’s leading manufacturer of trailers, they have also announced that their projected turnover has risen sharply.

The group turnover to 31/3/2014 was £130m, projected to rise to £170m by 31/3/15, a hike of £40 million.

The contract, with Scotland’s largest haulage company, the Malcolm Group is for 120 trailers and includes a joint development project to design an extending trailer which can transport additional pallets on the same lorry.

Managing Director Mark Cuskeran (pictured) says the company is delighted both with the success of the new product, and also with securing such a large order so soon after announcing its £10 Million contract with Hireco, just a few months month ago.

He added that the company expects to make another significant announcement in the coming months, securing current levels of employment and possibly adding further jobs before the end of 2014.
