Albis, who represent leading plastic manufacturers and brands, compounds and distributes thermoplastic materials for injection moulding in quantities from 25Kg bags all the way through to 25 ton tanker loads. On site storage of finished polymer is an essential part of Albis’ service as this ensures rapid turnaround of orders.
Latest Barton silo to be installed at the Albis Knutsford site
Commenting on the recent silo installations, Jon Cottrill Project Engineer at Albis said:
“Barton Fabrications were selected to supply the silos for our Knutsford site. Being ‘good at what they do’ meant a straightforward trouble free installation process. The silos are used to store virgin and recycled raw materials plus finished products for our growing bulk distribution business.”
Commenting on the install Mark Barton, MD and owner of Barton Fabrications said:
“Although the installation of the silos was fairly simple, proximity to Manchester Airport meant we had to get approval before we could take cranes on site to carry out the lifting procedure. We were happy to do this; it is all part of the service we offer to ensure trouble free silo installation.”
Barton Fabrications is the UK’s largest supplier of aluminium silos: vessels and blenders are produced which are suitable for a wide range of both virgin and recycled plastic feedstock.
