Minister of State for Northern Ireland, Steve Baker visits Kiverco HQ

Steve Baker MP, Minister of State for Northern Ireland recently visited Kiverco's headquarters in Co. Tyrone to explore the pivotal role the facility plays in the design, production, and distribution of cutting-edge waste-recycling plants worldwide.

Minister Baker was eager to gain a comprehensive understanding of Kiverco's waste-separation technology, specifically focused on the company's endeavours in export markets such as Europe, the Middle East and Australia.

The Middle East was of particular interest to the Minister who was interested to hear about the company’s recent successes in the region. Kiverco’s Export Sales Manager, Gabriel O'Keefe, who is also an Export Champion for Northern Ireland, is currently meeting with customers this week at Cop28, where all waste from the event will be processed by a Kiverco recycling plant. 

Minister Baker was welcomed to Kiverco’s Headquarters in Brocagh, Tyrone by Kiverco’s Senior Management team who informed the minister of some of Kiverco’s excellent contributions to the Northern Ireland Economy and showed him some recent Kiverco plants throughout the world. He then enjoyed a factory tour and saw first-hand the production of Kiverco machinery. Minster Baker was particularly interested to hear of some recent installations as far away as Australia.

Managing Director John Irwin commented “We extend our sincere gratitude to Minister Baker for dedicating time from his hectic schedule to visit our facility. His genuine interest in our operations and commitment to understanding how we contribute to helping companies globally recover value from processed waste in an environmentally responsible manner is greatly appreciated.

 An increasing number of nations are dedicated to realising a circular economy model, emphasising the need for robust waste-recycling plants to meet these goals.

We bring substantial value to every waste management company that selects a Kiverco plant, boasting unparalleled tough credentials. We pride ourselves on creating the world’s toughest plant with more uptime, higher sustained purity and a longer useful life than our competitors’.

Steve Baker said: “The UK Government is committed to promoting Northern Ireland’s excellent goods and services around the world.

“It was great to tour Kiverco and learn about this family-owned business’ expansion to countries including Dubai, Saudi Arabia and Australia, as well as Gabriel’s role as an Export Champion for the Department for Business and Trade and their participation in COP 28 in the United Arab Emirates.

“Northern Ireland is home to brilliant businesses and it’s fantastic to see them enjoying international success.”
