The 18 000 m2 facility will provide a solid foundation for Powerscreen to commence production in China, accelerating manufacturing plans by approximately two years. Kieran Hegarty, President Terex Materials Processing said, “This investment by Terex to manufacture locally in China marks the next chapter in Powerscreen’s growth story, demonstrates a long-term commitment to the region and will enable us to be a formidable competitor in China. It will also deliver significant economic benefits to the local area, in terms of supporting key supply chain partners and providing skilled jobs. Additionally, this expansion will support our growth plans without impacting Powerscreen’s production capacity at its other Terex facilities.”

Powerscreen first entered China in 2016, as a response to government investment in infrastructure and legislation supporting the use of recycled materials. Since then, Powerscreen has continued to build a growing market presence through its China sales and service team, building its distribution network, attending industry exhibitions, and hosting customers through open days.

A dedicated team from Northern Ireland will be onsite to oversee scale-up of production in China and ensure processes are to the same robust standard of Powerscreen’s manufacturing centre of excellence in Northern Ireland. Work is already underway, with Powerscreen equipment onsite for the training of the China team. It is expected that the first locally produced machines will come off the line before the end of the year.

Kieran Hegarty concluded, “Mobile crushing and screening equipment plays a basic, yet vital, role in the sustainable building of infrastructure. This facility will accelerate our manufacturing plans for China and will enable us to assist commercial ventures in China with the right equipment, carrying the Powerscreen name, built by a local team and sold through an enhanced distribution network.”
