Yesterday’s visit of prominent business men from Northern Ireland was to an open day at the Aughey Screens Facility, Killyconnigan, Monaghan. 21 of our key customers from Northern Ireland visited the factory and had a walking tour of our facility seeing how our products are manufactured, assembled and dispatched.
Aughey Screens manufacture and supply screening media to the extractive industry, recycling industry and other material handling industries such as food etc.
The open day was initiated primarily as a result of Brexit, whereby it was proposed by our key sales personnel initially that it was important for the company to build on its relationships with its customers in Northern Ireland and the UK so as to maintain a close customer relationship in view of the upcoming Brexit. This in turn was supported by management.
As such the Institute of Quarrying (Northern Ireland branch) was invited to an open day at the facility. The Institute represents and is a voice for companies within the extractive industries and there associate suppliers.
Aughey Screens was set up by Daniel Aughey in October 1979. The company currently has 24 employees on a 28,000 sq. ft. facility. Aughey Screens manufactures all types of screening media for the extractive and recycling industries with product sold throughout the world to markets in Australia, Germany, USA, Africa to name but a few.
The photo taken inside the facility is at one of our automatic weaving looms with Sean Shields the companies Production Manager, then we have Sam Eccles, Chairman of the Institute of Quarrying and Barry Aughey, General Manager of Aughey Screens.
The management of Aughey Screens would like to take this opportunity to thank all of its employees for their enthusiasm and hard work in ensuring that the Open Day was a success and we thank them for their continued support.
