Grand New York deal for Newry firm

Enterprise Trade and Investment Minister Jonathan Bell has announced that Newry based FM Environmental has won a significant contract with Grand Central Station in New York.

Announcing the project at Grand Central Station at the end of last week, Minister Bell said: “This is an impressive development for a very ambitious Northern Ireland company. FM Environmental identified the US as a target market for its Grease Guardian products and took the strategic decision to open a US office to enable it to capitalize on the emerging business opportunities. This commitment has certainly paid off. In the first twelve months, the company has successfully installed its products in over 300 different locations across the US and can now include the magnificent Grand Central Station on its long list of customers.

FM Environmental established its New York headquarters in 2014 and this latest contract adds to their existing with leading US fast food restaurants and coffee houses.

Des Murphy from FM Environmental’s Grease Guardian USA said: “Initially we did our research which allowed us to gain information about the steps we would have to take to enter the US market and as a result identified a gap in the US Market for our Grease Guardian, grease trap products. We have been on a number of Invest NI trade missions and are starting to reap the benefits of all our hard work with significant new businesses being signed in this market. We now hope to continue to develop relationships in the US which will be vital to our future exporting success,” he added.
