Background

Techno Tyrone Ltd can proudly trace its origins back to the determined actions of the local community, intent on developing the areas potential, economically and socially.

In 1988 the Carrickmore Community Association set about their first step in the regeneration of the local area, initiating several recreational building projects to service the population. It was decided by the Association that real sustainable growth must be underpined by strategic economic growth.

A splinter group from the Community Association was formed called 'Termonmaguirc Economic Development Association' - its aims being to devise a regeneration strategy which would positively contribute to the economic and social regeneration of the locality.

After four years of pain-staking work and voluntary dedication a community based company called Techno Tyrone was set up to manage the allocation of a major CRISP (Community Regeneration & Improvements Special Programme) initiative, jointly funded by the D.O.E (NI) and the I.F.I for the Carrickmore area in April 1991. Significantly Carrickmore was one of the first communities in the North of Ireland to secure funding under CRISP.

Techno Tyrone opened The Milestone Centre and Termon Business Park in 1993 to great acclaim. The construction of ths modern rural resource centre and industrial workspace was an important step for rural development in the locality and warmly welcomed by the local community.

Included in the total project cost of £2.01million were an Environmental Improvements Scheme and Urban Development Plan facilitating major new improvements to the town environment.
