New manufacturing facility to meet washing plant demand

McCloskey Washing Systems, the new subsidiary of McCloskey International, has confirmed that it is on target for the opening of a new state of the art manufacturing facility in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland in April 2017.

As previously reported by Quarry, McCloskey Washing Systems will design and manufacture a whole new range of mobile, modular and static material and mineral washing plant and equipment.

The manufacturer is better known for producing mobile crushing and screening plant and equipment for the quarrying, mining, recycling and industrial sand sectors since 1985.

The product line was introduced internationally from 1 November and will be officially unveiled at the CONEXPO/CON-AGG tradeshow in Las Vegas from 7 to 11 March, 2017.


“McCloskey Washing Systems is delighted to confirm our ongoing investment in this division with the opening in April 2017 of what is truly a centre of excellence for the manufacture of our premium washing equipment,” McCloskey Washing Systems director Sean Loughran said. “This new factory will complement our existing facilities in the UK, Canada and the USA and marks the next step in the company’s strategy to become the global market leader in this segment.

“This facility will allow us to quickly ramp up production to meet the ever increasing demand from our global dealer network for our washing equipment. [November] will see the launch of our largest wash plant to date – the SandStorm 620, and this factory allows us to manufacture these units in an efficient manner while ensuring optimum quality on every aspect of the machine."

The manufacturing facility will produce the entire range of McCloskey Washing Systems equipment including mobile, modular and static mineral washing plant and equipment.


“McCloskey Washing Systems will fully assemble and test every machine prior to strip down and packing to ensure every aspect of the machine meets the exacting standards of our quality department and most importantly, our customers," Loughran said. "This new facility allows us to do this with even the largest of our machines.

“The centre of excellence will also incorporate a large customer centre where our customers will be able to visit the factory and see their machines in all their glory before taking delivery on their site.”

The Australian eastern states distributor of McCloskey mobile crushers and screens, and now McCloskey Washing Systems plant and equipment, is MSC Group, headquartered in Wacol, Queensland.
