A company set up by a Coalisland man who emigrated to Australia with his young family, is already reaping rewards after it was announced as the equipment distributor for local engineering firm, Edge Innovate.

The announcement was confirmed at a factory visit to Edge’s Irish manufacturing headquarters by Focus Enviro Managing Director, Robbie McKernan.

Robbie, formerly from Washingbay Road, his wife Emer (from Killyman) and their young son, Tiernan, now live in Perth.

Robbie said of the deal: “EDGE Innovate has the expertise, experience and capacity needed to create highly effective solutions to meet the differing needs of each customer. Focus Enviro work only with world class experienced manufacturers and suppliers that specialise in the waste and organics industries and who have an understanding of the intricate challenges facing those in the sector.”

EDGE’s Dealer Manager for Africa, Europe and Australasia, Tom Connolly, also from Coalisland, says the deal is an important step in offering the Australian waste and organics sector “robust, quality and efficient equipment”.
