Finance Minister visits Terex as part of NI Chamber initiative
Dungannon was the destination for Finance Minister Simon Hamilton yesterday (17 September 2014) as Terex hosted an onsite visit from the Minister as part of ‘Minister on the Move’ – a business led initiative by Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce and Industry (NI Chamber) in partnership with British Airways.
Over 80 local businesses joined the Minister, Terex and NI Chamber as part of the initiative which comprises a number of events across Northern Ireland where local businesses are invited to come along and share their views and concerns on the economy directly with the Minister.
Guests were also provided with an opportunity to be inspired by the success story of Terex, delivered by Damian Power, Global Product Line Director at Terex, followed by a guided tour of the company’s facilities.
Speaking at the event, Simon Hamilton MLA Minister of Finance and Personnel, said:
“I know that many businesses have been through some tough times recently and I want to make sure that, as the economy recovers, we are all ready to make the most of the new opportunities that are emerging.
“These events allow me to hear directly from local business about their views on what is needed to make this happen, to share with them some views on how the public sector can respond innovatively, and most importantly to explore if there are new and better ways of working together from which we can all benefit.”
Terex are a subsidiary of Terex Corporation operating within the Terex Materials Processing division. Their activities in Northern Ireland are principally involved in the manufacturing and sale of crushing, screening, washing and environmental equipment under the Powerscreen and Terex Brands.
