Cookstown CDEnviro ranked fasted growing SME exporter in Northern Ireland

The CDEnviro team celebrate the company's success

COOKSTOWN manufacturer CDEnviro has been rated as Northern Ireland's fastest growing small or medium exporter.

The company was ranked 16th in a top 100 SME Export Track published by the Sunday Times.

The business designs and manufactures waste reduction and recycling equipment solutions for use in the sewage, waste water, waste management and utility industries.

It has grown its international sales by an average of 127 per cent and demonstrated exponential expansion in the last two years.

Overseas customers include US multinational Cargill, which uses its waste processing technology to clean soil at its tomato processing factory in Brazil.

CDE was formed in 1992 to service the environmental waste water sector in the UK and Ireland. The CDE group of companies now employs over 400 people across eight regions.

CDEnviro general manager Marc Jennings said: “This is the first year that we have featured on the Export Track League Table and this ranking is very welcome confirmation that our commitment to our export markets is paying off.

“When we first launched the company our first contract wins came in the UK market, working with major utility companies.

"We operated exclusively in the UK and Ireland markets until 2013 and introduced a number of new products to this market. We then sought to grow our global coverage and to date we have completed projects in Europe, Australia, North America and Latin America.”

Country Antrim firm Seven Technologies Group was the only other company from the north on the list, ranked at number 43.
