Lisburn, UK – Northern Ireland-based Smiley Monroe Ltd is planning a “physical presence” in North America on the back of increasing demand.
The manufacturer of heady-duty conveyor belts announced 25 July that it had a milestone year in 2017 with expansion into new markets, and expected 2018 to become a “record-breaking” year.
The company did not further elaborate on its expansion plans in North America.
Based in Lisburn, south of Belfast, Smiley Monroe registered a 25% growth in sales in 2017 and expects similar results this year too.
The company said it has doubled belt output to almost 700 belts a week as result of high demand for its core product, namely endless belts and custom cut parts.
In February, the company announced winning new deals in the US and Asia, with an estimated worth of €300,000.
