Founded in Cook­stown in 1992 by Co Down man Tony Con­very, CDE is now con­sid­ered the world’s top wet pro­cess­ing equip­ment com­pany for the sand and ag­gre­gates, min­ing and waste in­dus­tries. The com­pany was named the Out­stand­ing Busi­ness of the Year in the 2019 Belfast Tele­graph Busi­ness Awards in Part­ner­ship with Ul­ster Bank.

Re­act­ing to the win, chair­man Tony Con­very said he re­fuses to place lim­its on his am­bi­tions as an en­tre­pre­neur: “We don’t see any limit. Why not be JCB, why not be Jaguar Land Rover, why not be the Google of North­ern Ire­land?”

The com­pany has ex­panded widely in North­ern Ire­land, in­clud­ing buy­ing a for­mer Cater­pil­lar NI site in Monkstown where it now has 100 staff, aim­ing to dou­ble that to 200.
