BlueMAC experiences significant growth in the worldwide demand for MRF’s
One of our first visits in Northern Ireland was to BlueMAC who are based at their new location in Dungannon, County Tyrone.
Originally formed in 2013 as the recycling arm of the Blue Machinery Group, BlueMac started designing bespoke Material Recycling Facilities. As with all new entries into a market this introduction to the recycling industry was challenging. However, as they progressed, and the first sale was made, it was clear that the design, manufacturing and installation of their plants was going to lead to success.
Initial sales were into the UK, utilising the sales team of Blue Machinery across the length and breadth of the country. However, during the second year BlueMac spread its wings and successfully installed its first international project into Kazazhstan.
These first international sales were a steep learning curve for BlueMac with the added complications of the way some of the deals were financed using such instruments as Letters of Credit, Bonds and Guarantees. This however didn’t deter the appointment of an Australian dealer that subsequently secured the first turnkey recycling system Down-Under. This success continued with a further 3 installations across the country, and numerous others continue to be on order today.
Increased demand:
With increasing orders the next challenge for BlueMac was to keep pace with demand;
General Manager of BlueMAC – Michael Strain took up the story, “This increase in demand has required us to increase our manufacturing partners. Previously our demand was able to be met with our sole manufacturing partner DMAC Engineering, who continue to provide us with a high-quality service. However, since the start of the year we have been introducing our product to a number of different manufacturers across Northern Ireland and England who continue to deliver a high quality product that meets our ISO requirements. ”
The BlueMAC team comprises of design and install engineers, an international sales team and project managers and as previously mentioned all backed up by the Blue Group Sales Offices across the UK.
