Concrete producers all over Ireland and the UK have a tough task these days in picking the right cement silo manufacturing companies. Sure, there is reputable steel fabrication companies throughout the countryside, or so their website and social media pages say…
So the real question is; how do I trust a silo manufacturer without taking into account their shiny website?
If your company was hiring a new employee, you would ask them for references to previous positions that they held over the past 5-8 years. Why would it be any different when employing a cement silo manufacturing company? After all, it would be much more difficult to change a couple of 100-tonne cement silos.
Why not ask for the past three to five projects completed by the company along with contact information for the client. We’re sure that these contacts would be happy to either sing praise or condemn the work completed. This should give you the clearest indication of workmanship when deciding to employ a company to produce and install silos for you.
Tip: Just because a company gives you the reference, don’t let the final step slide and think that they wouldn’t give it to you if insufficient. Make sure to do your due diligence and contact the reference. After all, it is only 2-3 phone calls/emails and might even prevent substandard work.

We would be happy to provide you with project references that you require. Cement silos are a large investment for any business, you are right to be careful in your selection.
What should I look for on a companies website?
The truth of the matter is, no company, good or bad will sing about their bad marks online. You can learn a lot about a company’s work through the time and investment put into their promotion online. You should be on the lookout for project pages and testimonials, especially the dates that they have been uploaded. Obviously, the more recent the project, the more relevant the project or testimonial is to your benefit.
What else should I look for in a cement silo producer?
After sale service is a large aspect of any industry. You want to make sure that when the recently installed 100-tonne silos aren’t forgotten the team leave the site. Aftercare service, such as spare parts, breakdown service & silo auditing can put a potential client’s mind at ease. Always ask the manufacturing company about their after sales service and don’t settle for less than you set out to receive.
