NFDC convention hailed a major success


Over 200 people attended the National Federation of Demolition Contractors’ annual convention last week.

Held at the Slieve Donard Resort & Spa in Co. Down, Northern Ireland and Sandvik Construction’s production facility for mobile crushing and screening in Ballygawley, the convention was hailed a major success,

Delegates from across the industry mingled, shared best practices and listened to the latest thinking in the sector.

As the main sponsor of this year’s convention, Sandvik played a key role in the success of the conference. On the Saturday morning delegates held their annual meeting on the shop floor of Sandvik’s Ballygawley factory; this was actually located in the spray shop, the home of a brand new £1.6 million powder coating plant.

Following the meeting the delegates undertook a factory tour of the Ballygawley site, during which they were able to see where, and how, the mobile crushing and screening range are manufactured. Following the factory tour the delegates were treated to a display of crushing and screening equipment, before enjoying what was acclaimed to be an “excellent” hog roast lunch.
