Whether it be a small-scale grit silo or fully automated silo facilities – or all the sizes and shapes between – we implement customised complete winter maintenance solutions, including the required engineering. In timber, naturally. Because this construction material is perfectly suited to storing salt and other bulk materials such as coffee and grain.

… and much more. Our range of products and services for silo and facilities construction is very extensive. That’s why we offer you consulting, planning, development, manufacture and erection on site as a complete package. Our solutions are as individual as your requirements and conditions. We plan and implement the individual components and their perfect interaction. Because it’s only when the processes, infrastructure, architecture, storage capacities and technology are optimally coordinated that you can ensure efficient, safe and reliable winter maintenance.

Conveyor technology

Efficiency thanks to powerful technology

The performance of conveyor technology plays a key role in the efficient operation of your facilities. We use different systems to ensure that we are able customise conveyor equipment to optimally meet your needs and processes. Depending on the requirements, we employ stationary or mobile conveyor systems.

Brine technology

A combination of salt and brine

Over the last few years, we have seen that a combination of road salt and salt solutions achieves very good results for winter road services. Lowering salt consumption reduces the negative impact on the environment and the use of wet salt is therefore a key element.
