We offer a complete range of silos, individually designed to suit the needs of the client and their processes, utilising the latest technology and ensuring adherence to the latest standards and codes. We are also able to offer bespoke vessels to meet individual customer needs, for example they can be manufactured in carbon steel with food/chemical quality coatings, stainless steel or aluminium.

Site Built silos can be supplied when the design criteria for large capacity tanks make it impractical or cost prohibitive to transport tanks in a safe and efficient manner. In house pre-fabricated components are transported to the site location where our fully trained site erection engineers complete the construction. Quality control procedures and final testing are undertaken during the construction programme. This means Tank designs (Size & Capacity) can be manufactured to meet client’s individual specific requirements. Ancillary equipment such as platforms, staircases (vertical or spiral) and access ladders are available and conform to the relevant British standards. These can be either welded or bolted together.
