Silo Manufacture & Installation

Direct Engineering Bulk Storage Silo Manufacturing Capabilities

Within our manufacturing facility in Chesterfield we specialise in the fabrication and installation of industrial bulk storage silos up to 100 tonnes, 20 metres in height and with a diameter of 4.5 metres. They can be manufactured from a range of materials including Aluminium, Stainless Steel and Mild Steel and are commonly used in various industries throughout the UK and Europe such as:

  • Food Storage
  • Agricultural
  • Plastics
  • Chemical
  • Pharmaceutical

Aluminium silos are the preferred option for most of our customers for the following reasons:

  • Lightweight
  • Oxide layer prevents contamination
  • Strong
  • Minimal maintenance issues

Silos can be fitted with load cells for monitoring the weight of the contents within and at customer request can be double skinned with lagging and cladded to avoid condensation and protect the product within them.

We offer a full turnkey solution to all our customer requirements from assisting with design through to manufacture and installation.
