    Australia-based Dynamic Equipment Ltd is creating seven jobs in Dungannon as it has chosen the Tyrone town for its new manufacturing facility.

    The firm provides design, manufacture and installation of static quarry plants such as cone crushers, screens, feeders and washing equipment. It also has offices in the US and Malaysia.

    Invest NI has offered £49,000 of support towards the creation of the new jobs, three of which are in place.

    Ethna McNamee, Invest NI’s Western Regional Manager said that “growing and strengthening Northern Ireland’s manufacturing business base is core to Invest NI’s business strategy.”

    Dynamic Equipment is owned by Australian Daniel Ritche, who Ethna added is “a very ambitious entrepreneur who brings a wealth of business experience.”

    She said that Invest NI’s support will “provide a solid foundation for the company to fulfil future growth plans, particularly to generate export success in Europe, Australia and America.”

Choosing Northern Ireland was an easy choice for our business and we have been impressed with the high calibre of talent on offer here.
