Materials washing specialist CDE Global has announced that it has increased its product assembly space by 32% to allow for the production of 60 additional machines every year.
CDE Global designs and manufactures materials washing and classification equipment with applications in a variety of sectors; sand and aggregates, construction waste recycling, mining, specialist industrial sands and environmental. The regional office network has a presence in Kolkata (India), Sao Paulo (Brazil) and Cary (North America).
The expansion has been funded by CDE following an upturn in the global construction materials industry. The company is responding to an increase in demand around the world for the range of classifying equipment they provide for quarrying, mining and recycling applications.
Strong foundations in key export markets will provide the basis for the company’s accelerated growth programme during the next five years, with major growth in market share anticipated in the US, Canada, Latin America, Australia and western Europe.
Raymond Cooke, operations director at CDE Global, said: “2015 was an exciting year for our company and we have been looking ahead to our growth potential for the coming years. We felt that it was a necessary step to develop a new assembly bay at our headquarters. This has increased our capacity by a third and allowed for an additional 60 machines to be exported every year.
“We already have the largest campus dedicated to the wet processing of minerals in the world and our expansion plans will necessitate a further development of this infrastructure. We look forward to consolidating our position as number one in some of our well-established export markets.”
Cooke added: “This is just one of several significant decisions that we have taken in 2015. Late last year we announced that we were doubling the size of our office in North America, where there is a significant opportunity for the company to increase its market share. Achieving significant growth in the US and Canada will form a major part of our global strategy for the coming five years.”
CDE Global recently announced their attendance at the bauma exhibition in Munich, Germany from 11-17 April 2016 and will also attend Agg1 in Nashville (22-24 March 2016) and Hillhead in the UK (28-30 June 2016). “We’ll be launching a number of new products to the global quarrying, mining and C&D waste recycling sectors at these three shows” explained Kevin Vallelly, CDE Global product development manager. “Our global trade show presence this year is designed to highlight the closed loop nature of our products – from the feed system through to the water recycling and sludge management equipment CDE is a one stop shop for anyone considering a wet processing project and our global project portfolio highlights our unrivalled expertise.”
CDE also recently announced that the company has been confirmed as a finalist in the prestigious bauma Innovation Award that is part of the show in Munich during April. “We’re delighted to be shortlisted for an innovation award at a show that is recognised globally for its focus on innovation” said Vallelly.
