For the last 25 years, Co Tyrone-headquartered CDE Global has designed and installed almost 2,000 turnkey wet processing solutions across the world.

The business, based in Cookstown and headed by founder Tony Convery, has seen its turnover soar to just shy of £62m – rising by more than £8m in the space of just 12 months. And pre-tax profits at the firm are up to £6.8m.
In the last two years, CDE has increased its annual international sales by 38%, with those sales making up three-quarters of overall sales in the year since its latest accounts were filed.

The growth led to the company recently being listed in the Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200, a league table ranking the UK’s mid-market private companies with the fastest-growing international sales. CDE Global is one of only three companies headquartered in Northern Ireland listed on the league table in 2019.

Working across five sectors and eight regions, CDE Global has been co-creating bespoke solutions with its customers for over 25 years to deliver collaborative, imaginative and unique processing systems. Its primary markets are the construction, mining, industrial sands and construction and demolition waste industries.

CDE Global chairman and company founder, Tony Convery told Ulster Business: “CDE Global has cemented its position as a world-leading wet processing equipment manufacturer.

“Leveraging the latest technologies and supported by the very best forward-thinking engineers, we continue to revolutionise the construction, mining, industrial sands and construction and demolition waste industries. We are at the forefront of the global market engineering future-ready and connected plants that boost productivity and output for our customers.

“CDE has global reach and impact, but we’re a local company and committed to our operations in Northern Ireland, evidenced by the recent opening of our new Centre of Excellence in Cookstown and the launch of our talent camp to engage and inspire our future engineers. We’re pleased to feature alongside other Northern Ireland-based companies and innovators who continue to mould their industries internationally.”

Some of its latest milestones include the completion of a multi-million-pound iron ore processing solution for mining giant SIMEC in Australia, a construction and demolition waste project in New York as well as a multi-million-pound scheme in Hawaii to produce washed sand and aggregates for use in the construction industry.

The business has also been named as one of the island of Ireland’s best managed companies in the Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards programme, collecting the accolade for the 11th consecutive year.
In February this year the company officially opened its new global headquarters in Cookstown.The new facility is the world’s largest campus dedicated to the wet processing of materials in the sand and aggregates, mining, construction and demolition waste recycling, industrial sands and environmental sectors.
