CK International is in receipt of Grant for R&D support from Invest NI for the Multi Ram Baler project. This project which is part-financed by the European Regional Development Fund under the Investment for Growth and Jobs Programme 2014-2020 will be implemented over the next 24 months and aims to develop an innovative new type of baler for the recycling industry.
Colm Grimes, MD of CK International said: “While we cannot divulge too much information on this new product at the moment, we are very excited with the impact this new machine can have on the recycling industry.”
“We have listened carefully to our customers’ needs and requirements and have come up with a new concept for a recycling baler, which we believe will offer a solution of maximum capacity and low energy consumption that can revolutionise the industry. We are in the process of protecting the design and are hoping to launch the new product at next year’s IFAT exhibition in Munich.”
“We’ve benefitted from a range of support from Invest NI over the years which has helped us grow and build our product portfolio; create new jobs; and upskill our experienced workforce. This partnership approach has allowed us to scale quickly and increase our competitiveness.”
