Co. Fermanagh-based Teemore Engineering has recently completed its first export order to Australia. Comprising 520 of the company’s Elite Cow Cubicles, the customer was Studleigh Dairy in New South Wales.
According to Teemore’s Nicky Johnston the initial contact between ourselves and the management team at Studleigh was facilitated by a member of the farm staff, who hails from Northern Ireland. After that it was a case of agreeing the specification for the cubicles required and the price. “Our website helped tremendously in allowing the customer assess the quality and scope of the products that we manufacture and distribute.
“Our input was part of a major of a major investment programme undertaken at the farm. We are currently exporting our product ranges to the other parts of the UK and the Republic of Ireland. But this is the first time that we have ever secured an order from as a far away as Australia.”
Teemore provides a specialist engineering service, developed to meet the specific needs of farmers that require livestock housing solutions. The company manufactures and supplies a standard range of livestock equipment as well as offering a bespoke design service.
“One of the most satisfying aspects to the work undertaken with Studleigh Dairies was the fact that our equipment is as relevant to milk producers in Australia as is the case here in Northern Ireland. The other pleasing dimension to it all is the reality that the worldwide web crosses all borders. We have spent a lot of time developing the company website over the past year or so. And this investment is now starting to pay off,” said Nicky.
“The involvement with the team at Studeigh allowed us to get a feel for the optimism that currently exists within Australia’s dairy sector. And I think this also bodes well regarding the prospects for milk production in this part of the world.”
