Manufacturer seals £0.5m export deal

A Dungannon company has secured new export business to Russia worth almost £500,000.

Anaconda Equipment International's new business was secured with help from recent Invest Northern Ireland trade activities including a mission to the Russian business centres of Moscow and St Petersburg and a massive quarrying and mining equipment show at Hillhead in Derbyshire.

The company, a leader in mobile conveyors, used both events to launch the machine for screening processing recycled concrete, crushed rock, sand and gravel, compost and top soil.

Dr Vicky Kell, Invest NI trade director, has welcomed the company's latest business outside Northern Ireland and Con Gallagher, sales director at Anaconda Equipment International, said the response to their products during both events was "fantastic".

"It was Anaconda's first presentation at Hillhead and we succeeded in selling all the machinery on our stand over the three-day event," he said.

"The orders are still coming in for the new screen and our other machinery from many parts of the world. Our dealer network has grown to more than 40."
