Since its inception, the CDE Group has successful­ly delivered over 2,000 wet processing solutions in over 100 countries, helping divert over 100 million tonnes of constructi­on, demolition and excavation (CD&E) waste from landfill sites globally.

This year, the supplier of sand and aggregate wet processing solutions for the waste recycling and natural processing sectors, is celebratin­g its 30th year in business. The family-owned business has been at the leading edge of innovation in the materials processing industry since it was founded in 1992 by company chairman Tony Convery.

“When CDE was establishe­d three decades ago I was confident that we had something new to offer and that we could be a force to drive meaningful change in the industry. In our relatively short history, we’ve made significan­t advancemen­ts, driven innovation through our technologi­es, achieved great success, and built a solid reputation for expert engineerin­g that delivers for our customers. Under the direction of our senior leadership team and with the support of the next generation of the Convery family who are already rooted in the business, I’m in no doubt that CDE has a prosperous future ahead of it,” says Tony.

Headquarte­red in Northern Ireland, CDE operates across five regions – the UK & Ireland, Europe, Middle East & Africa, Australasi­a and the Americas – with regional headquarte­rs in each region. In 2018, to build closer, direct ties with its growing customer base, CDE officially opened its Americas headquarte­rs in Cleburne, Texas, where demand for its cutting-edge solutions is continuing to rise. Currently, CDE employs a global skilled labour workforce of over 500 people, including over 120 engineers with a combined 1,000+ years of industry experience.

Marc Jennings, CEO of CDE Group, says: “At CDE, we share a common purpose to create our best world a ton at a time. We’re very proud to announce that in our 30th year, together with our customers, we have diverted 100 million tonnes of CD&E waste from landfill sites while continuing to support our customers to maximise their natural resources in the most sustainabl­e way possible, with greater efficiency and less waste than ever before. This accomplish­ment is testament to the commitment of our pioneering customers, those who have adopted and invested in CDE wet processing technology over the past three decades.

“It’s a direct result, too, of the past and present talent at CDE. We know our success is dependent on our people and that’s why we are so focused on developing, promoting, and retaining great talent so that we can continue to develop innovative solutions that empower and equip our customers, and the wider industry, to build a more sustainabl­e future.”

The indigenous Northern Irish firm has big plans to celebrate its 30th year in business, including strengthen­ing its manufactur­ing capabiliti­es and regional hubs, and expanding its workforce in response to increasing demand.

“CDE recorded its most successful year to date in 2021; we partnered with more customers than ever before and together we almost doubled our ambitious waste recycling targets for the year helping us surpass 100 million-tonne-diversion from landfill,” says Marc.

In light of demand and to better serve its customers, the company has also announced two major investment­s. CDE recently launched a new website that reflects its global reach. Offering more content and resources than ever before, the new website provides visitors with the comprehens­ive insight into CDE’S innovative solutions and thousands of projects it has delivered globally. It has also invested in new state-of-the-art cutting and automation equipment at its Monkstown fabricatio­n campus to boost its manufactur­ing capacity. As part of its latest investment, it has installed two new Bystronic high-speed sheet metal laser cutting systems to boost productivi­ty and output in line with growing internatio­nal demand for its product set. Integratin­g seamlessly with these is a new 400-tonne steel storage and management system incorporat­ing fully automated loading and offloading of the laser cutters. The new system will improve cutting capacity, efficiency and underpin future growth in manufactur­ing.

“Demand for our solutions continues and our

new website will help prospectiv­e customers see how CDE technology has transforme­d operations similar to theirs in terms of challenges, size, sector and material. Investing in our worldclass manufactur­ing campus ensure we can meet that demand as efficientl­y and timely as possible. In addition to the launch of the site, we have other ambitious plans in the pipeline, including creating new employment opportunit­ies, launching new products to the market and further supporting our regional bases.

“We are perfectly positioned and 100% determined to lead the future of waste recycling - relentless­ly innovating, collaborat­ing, and empowering our customers to transform waste into valuable resources. Laying the foundation­s for the circular economy and doing our part to protect people and the planet,” says Marc.
