Anaconda has grand opening for new factory

Anaconda Equipment, a global manufacturer of material processing equipment, has completed phase one of the development of a new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Ardboe, Co Tyrone, Northern Ireland. The facility covers 31,330 sq. ft. and is home to a new paint shop, blast area and assembly fitting area. The new facility will allow for an increase in production capacity by up to 30%.

The increased capacity will lead to the creation of a number of job opportunities in the region to support the speed at which machines will pass through production.

The new facility will be home to the state-of-the-art paint shop and blasting processes. The addition of a new blasting and paint shop will allow Anaconda to further improve the quality of the machines produced with a superior paint finish. As a company dedicated to satisfying customers and dealers, Anaconda places emphasis on the quality of the machinery produced. The investment into new, innovative, and high-tech painting and blasting machinery will aid with further ensuring an outstanding high-quality finish.

With an increasing customer demand for the Anaconda Equipment portfolio globally, the expansion to the company facilities will be welcomed. Quality enhancements, environmental benefits, shorter lead times and increased productivity will all help Anaconda meet one of the company’s core goals – Customer Satisfaction.

“Over the last few years Anaconda has been deep in development of its tracked crushing equipment line with the launch of its open and closed circuit J12 Jaw and I12 Impactor models to add to its current full line of tracked screening, scalping, recycling, and conveying equipment.

We have an aggressive design plan to bring to market several additional tracked jaw, impactor and cone models, and a huge part of that strategy has been the work behind the scenes in finishing our new 31,300 sq. ft. state-of-the-art production facility adjacent to the current Anaconda facility,” said co-Managing Director Alistair Forsyth.

“We are extremely proud of the growth that Anaconda has seen since its launch on the market in 2009, and this new facility will allow us to better serve our customer base for years to come. Furthermore, this expansion will bring several additional employment and supply opportunities to the local economy that has supported us throughout our journey,” said -co-Managing Director Martin Quinn.

Phase one of the development is testament to Anaconda’s routes and will facilitate further growth over the next 15 years. Anaconda Equipment will build on this to then move on with phase two of the development plan focusing on infrastructure and people. Over the next few years Anaconda have plans to introduce new factories, new offices, and new technology. This is all to build on advancements with Anaconda’s manufacturing processes whilst also creating a better working environment for employees.

Headquartered in Co Tyrone, Northern Ireland, Anaconda Equipment is part of the McLanahan Corporation family of companies. In 2019, they joined McLanahan’s 185-years of history to help expand the company’s product offering and reach a wider dealer network.
