The introduction of new sand washing technology to Poland has seen many quarry operators enjoy substantial increases in efficiency and product quality in recent times.
CDE Ireland, originate from Northern Ireland and have been operating in the Polish market for two years under the management of Mr Roman Gorski. The company has been designing and manufacturing sand washing plants for almost twenty years and in the last five years have made significant progress in opening up new export markets throughout Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
“Over the last two years we have secured major contracts in a number of European countries – Poland, Bulgaria, Romania, Lithuania, Sweden and Estonia” explains Mr Eoin Heron, European Sales Manager for CDE. “In addition to this we have also an office in India as well as Qatar and Dubai.”
“We have focused on developing markets in Europe in particular for some time now and Poland forms a central part of our strategy” says Mr Gorski. “We know from previous experience that placing a CDE person in country to develop the business is the best
way to ensure our customers get the best level of technical support and service available.”
Prior to being appointed country manager for Poland, Roman Gorski had developed considerable experience working with CDE as a project engineer. “There are very few people within CDE with a better understanding than Roman of the benefits that our sand washing plants can bring in terms of efficiency and product quality” comments Mr Heron.
Roman had worked on the installation, commissioning and ongoing management of many of CDE’s worldwide installations which, according to Mr Heron, left him with the technical expertise required to assist with the company’s entry into the Polish market. “The transition to technical sales from a background in design and project engineering is one that we as a company are fully committed to” explains Mr Heron.
Following the decision to place Mr Gorski in Poland, CDE set about clearly defining where their equipment could meet the requirements of the market in Poland. “We know from our experience throughout the world that our Evowash sand plant offers many advantages over what could be described as traditional sand washing technologies – screw classifiers and dewatering wheels” explains Mr Gorski. “Our experience in the market to date shows that using these old technologies results in the loss of substantial quantities of commercial grade material to the ponds.”
