New Terex Facility Brings 100 Jobs To L'Derry

Global company Terex has announced plans to build a new manufacturing facility in L'Derry, adding to its eight other sites in Northern Ireland and bringing 100 jobs to the area.

The manufacturer of lifting and material processing solutions is investing £12 million in the Campsie development, which will manufacture product lines for Terex Ecotec (waste management and recycling) and Terex Conveying Systems (TCS) (mobile conveying).

Kieran Hegarty, President of Terex Materials Processing said: "Our objective is to be recognised as a leading global manufacturer of mobile conveyor systems, waste management and recycling equipment.

"This new 105,000 sq ft. facility will help us realise this ambition by increasing our manufacturing and engineering design capability and developing innovative new products for Terex Ecotec and TCS.

"Work is already underway on the new Campsie site. It will be operational later this year, and we aim to have all 100 jobs in place within 3-4 years. This is an exciting development for Terex and the local team and we look forward to the new facility and new recruits playing an important part in our future here."

Invest NI is backing the development with nearly £1 million to support the new jobs, and research and development.

This project will bring significant economic benefits to the area and the whole of Northern Ireland, delivering over £2m in annual salaries and increasing exports.

The new jobs will include production operative roles along with, management and support roles in HR, operations and finance and a number of R&D positions.

Terex employs over 1,500 people in Northern Ireland across its Dungannon, Omagh, Ballymoney and Lurgan sites.

SDLP MLA Mark H Durkan has welcomed the announcement of 100 new jobs for his constituency as "very positive", both in the number and nature of the roles.

He said: "Terex are a well established and highly regarded company and it is fantastic to see this demonstration of faith in Derry. Hopefully their move, with the creation of a hundred engineering jobs here, will give ideas to other engineering companies to set up in Derry.

"We have a chronic problem with unemployment here and while Invest NI must be acknowledged for their work in delivering this good news, much more focus is needed on the redevelopment of our economy.

"The SDLP remain steadfast in our demand for a City Deal and are confident that, if delivered, it would lead to many more good news stories like this one.''
