The official opening of the new CDE Asia factory in Kolkata, India took place on 21st November 2012. The new production facility is located in the same industrial area as the existing CDE Asia factory in Kolkata and has been developed to ensure the company can accommodate growing demand for the range of washing equipment they produce for the market in India and South East Asia.
Since the formation of CDE Asia in 2007 (Fig.) the company has established a position as the leading manufacturer of washing equipment with numerous projects throughout India. The strategy that has driven this success has involved pioneering the introduction of new processing systems in a variety of industry sectors. Key to this success has been the adaptation of CDE equipment to suit the specific requirements of the iron ore industry. Many of the leading steel producers in India are now operating iron ore processing systems from CDE which have been developed over the last five years. Another recent success has been the introduction of a construction and demolition waste recycling plant for the Delhi Municipal Corporation. This is the first project in this sector for CDE outside the UK where the modular washing systems for construction, demolition and excavation waste were first introduced ten years ago.
