Cookstown company CDE Global is to create 50 jobs in the Co Tyrone town, following a stg£3m investment to expand its export reach, and in particular to target markets in Europe, Australia, Brazil, South Africa and North America.

CDE Global designs and manufactures bespoke materials washing equipment for the mining, construction, specialist industrial sands and environmental sectors.

The company is looking to fill roles in various areas, including design, finance, engineering, and sales and marketing.

Enterprise, Trade and Investment Minister Arlene Foster said this expansion further builds on CDE Global’s sustained growth, which has been driven by its focus on product development and export sales.

Invest NI has offered stg£614,000 of support for the 50 new jobs, 14 of which are already in place.

Brendan McGurgan, CDE Global’s managing director, said the company’s objective is to significantly increase overall turnover and raise its level of exports through targeted marketing activity.

“In addition to our growth in Cookstown, we plan to establish a local presence in our key target markets supported by our growing network of regional service partners,” McGurgan said.

“Invest NI’s support is essential to enabling us to implement our business plan quickly on the scale we need to achieve our goals.”
