Terex jobs announcement a 'huge boost' for North West - Manufacturing NI CEO
7 Mar 2019
The £12 million investment in the creation of 100 new jobs in Derry by Terex is huge boost for the North West, the chief executive of Manufacturing NI, Stephen Kelly, has said. Derry man Mr Kelly (pictured) said the new plant at Campsie was bringing what should be Brexit proof production of recycling machinery serving a global marketplace. Mr Kelly added: "The area presents a great opportunity for Terex and other manufacturers given the available skills pool and now that the region is being opened up through the long overdue investment in roads infrastructure. "There is a growing sense of optimism driven by the work of the Council and supported by Invest NI and others. It is critical that the new found momentum is maintained by securing a start to the A5 road project, growing the Magee Campus of Ulster University and securing a City Deal. "The manufacturing sectors remains the 2nd largest private sector employer in the Derry City and Strabane District Council area after the retail and wholesale industry. Terex will join large employers such as multi-national firms such as Seagate and O’Neills alongside a raft homegrown employers such as Fleming Agri, Diamond Corrugated, AE Global, Carella Laminates and NuPrint." Mr Kelly concluded: "It is a huge credit to the President of Terex Finlay, local man Ciaran Hegarty, that this investment and resulting jobs has been secured for not only Northern Ireland but the Derry City area in particular."
