Screening and crushing industry leader McCloskey International has announced the launch of McCloskey Washing Systems (MWS), a new business division focused on washing and classifying across multiple applications. The new unit will design and manufacture a full range of mobile, modular and static material and mineral washing equipment.

While McCloskey International has been producing equipment for the quarrying, recycling, mining and industrial sand sectors for over 30 years, this new division has been created to provide 100% focus on the development of class-leading innovative and efficient equipment for washing and classifying material and mineral products.

Speaking ahead of the launch, McCloskey International’s President and CEO Paschal McCloskey said, “Our customers are always looking for more modern, flexible and cost-effective solutions. Our customer-driven approach to product development has led us to invest significantly in the establishment of this new division, with the aim to be the design and manufacture of high quality washing equipment that is easy to install, maintain and operate.”

The products produced by the new division will deliver significant advantages to customers, including lower cost of ownership, lower cost of production, and making more projects viable for their business.

“Global requirements are becoming more stringent, and McCloskey International is in the perfect position to provide innovative equipment to assist customers in meeting these demands”, said Sean Loughran, Director, McCloskey Washing Systems. “The entrepreneurial spirit that McCloskey was founded on is very much alive; the business continues to be driven by passion to design and build the best equipment. This same ethos exists within MWS. Our team of highly skilled and experienced Washing Design Engineers have spent the past 12 months developing an impressive range of washing equipment that, I am delighted to announce, is ready to be launched onto the world stage.”

McCloskey Washing Systems (MWS) has confirmed that it is on target for the opening of a large state of the art manufacturing facility in Co. Tyrone, Northern Ireland in April 2017.

The announcement follows the recent launch of MWS as a new division of McCloskey International Limited. The new world-class premium manufacturing facility will manufacture the entire range of MWS equipment including Mobile, Modular and Static Mineral Washing equipment.

Sean Loughran, Director of MWS, commented, "McCloskey Washing Systems is delighted today 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. 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.”

With a host of international tradeshows and customer open days planned, the remainder of 2016 and all of 2017 is going to be a busy time for MWS. Introduction of the division and product line within the global dealer network has begun, and will continue leading up to the formal display of the division’s capabilities at CONEXPO/CON-AGG 2017, March 7-11 in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. The first products will be unveiled and on display in a 20,000+ sq. ft. exhibit in the Silver Lot, at S5115 and S5014.

Sean Loughran added, “These are exciting times at McCloskey and I am delighted to be leading this new division. With our core focus on developing highly innovative and efficient equipment and our company-wide emphasis on supporting our customers, I have no doubt MWS will quickly be seen as the market leader in the Washing industry.”
