MDS International designs and manufactures state of the art range of Trommels, Apron Feeders and Conveyors. We pride ourselves on our innovation in all our product range as well as offering bespoke solutions to our client needs. With our two factories based in Ireland, we develop our machines  in conjunction with our creative and skilled staff. MDS leaves no stone unturned!  25 years ago, owner and CEO, Liam Murray had a vision that he wanted to manufacture his own range of trommel’s but with a difference. “A trommel that is built to withstand the harshest of environments and the toughest quarried aggregates”. Having manufactured products for other people he knew what worked for them and what he wanted to improve on.         

MDS Trommels

Building a trommel that will take up to a 1.5m rock in quarry requires the expertise and a know how that many other manufacturers simply don’t have. In an era where all machines are being asked to do more than one job for business, our trommels provide the perfect solution. Screening quarried rock, recycled material or soil, the MDS trommel completes the task without any fuss. Our design team focus on meeting and exceeding all the challenges a trommel faces.


The simplicity and build quality of all our products are what stands us out from the competition.

  • Facilities

    Inhouse Manufacturing The Designers of MDS International are experts in Computer Aided Design and Manufacture with vast experience. All the trommels in the MDS Range have been designed and built from scratch. Our Design Office boasts powerful Design Workstations that are at the disposal of the Engineers. Our Engineers are also proficient in key Software packages and create all the Nests for laser cutting using the powerful SigmaNest software. Nests are created so that there is minimal material waste. All the parts needed for our machines are plasma cut inhouse. The chassis, drums and subframes are welded together in our manufacturing factory, where they are painted and then sent over to our Production Facility down the road where all the assembly takes place. We boast in the fact that we have the workforce and the facilities to carry out all the production in our factories, this includes design, fabrication, painting, electronics and hydraulic systems. Buildings Our company operates from two buildings. Our Main 12,000 square foot building is where all our overhead staff are based along with all the production staff.

  • MDS Drum Cleaner is a 'game changer'

    We have added something new and ‘game-changing’ to the market in our  MDS Drum cleaner! How does it work? It’s a Cog wheel style configuration that meshes with the drum openings and punches out the holes to keep them clean. Traditionally people have tried to brush trommels clean but as we all know that this simply doesn’t work. The drum cleaner is at its happiest when punching out the soils and clays that traditionally blind over scalpers in both recycling yards but also quarries. All the range can have this solution fitted and those that have it wonder why they haven’t had it sooner. Quarry manager Luke Jones commented “without the drum cleaner we wouldn’t have been able to screen our wet and sticky recycled products. It gives us a competitive advantage in the market when others can’t produce clean aggregate material”       Read More
