One hundred new jobs are to be created by manufacturing firm Terex Corporation at its Campsie plant in Derry. The news has been welcomed by Sinn Fein Foyle MP Elisha McCallion. Terex is a major global manufacturer of materials processing equipment and a trusted supplier of innovatively designed and durable products. To support the Materials Processing business segment growth strategy, Terex has purchased a new 105,000 square foot manufacturing facility, representing a £12 million investment at Campsie. This facility will focus on the design, manufacture and development of the Terex Ecotec range of waste management products and the Terex Conveying Systems range of mobile conveyor products. Welcoming the announcement, Ms McCallion said: “This is a welcome boost for the manufacturing sector and it is encouraging to see companies like this with local roots returning to create opportunities in the north west. “This investment of £12m in our local economy is a good news story for the north west. “This is the latest in a series of jobs announcements for the city and is the outworking of the collaborative approach to job creation led by Derry City and Strabane District Council and other key stakeholders. “With the appointment by the north west development group of an individual to specifically look at attracting inward investment to Derry and Donegal I would be hopeful of further job announcements in the time ahead.”
