Jobs Boost As Australian Firm Sets Up In Co Tyrone

An Australian manufacturing company has chosen Dungannon as the location for its new manufacturing facility in an investment that will create seven jobs.

Dynamic Equipment, based in Adelaide, had offices in the US and Malaysia before taking the decision to establish operations in Northern Ireland.

It provides design, manufacture and installation of static quarry plants such as cone crushers, screens, feeders and washing equipment.

The highly skilled local talent and increase in global demand were key factors that pointed the firm towards investing locally.

Owner and Managing Director of the firm, Australian native Daniel Ritchie said: "We first established Dynamic Equipment due to the increasing demand in the global market for high quality mineral processing, aggregate and mining equipment. Choosing Northern Ireland was an easy choice for our business and we have been impressed with the high calibre of talent on offer here."

Invest NI offered £49,000 of support towards the creation of the seven new jobs, three of which are already in place.

Mr Ritchie said the support was instrumental in establishing a core team to help strengthen the global business.

Western Regional Manager at the agency, Ethna McNamee commented: "Dynamic Equipment is a highly innovative company and it is welcome news that it has chosen Dungannon to establish this new manufacturing facility. Growing and strengthening Northern Ireland's manufacturing business base is core to Invest NI's business strategy.

"Daniel Ritchie is a very ambitious entrepreneur who brings a wealth of business experience and our support will provide a solid foundation for the company to fulfil future growth plans, particularly to generate export success in Europe, Australia and America."
