“As part of our Brexit risk mitigation strategy, we procured the design, supply and installation services of Direct Engineering to undertake the manufacture of two 80 Tonne aluminium silos for holding virgin polymer along with the associated contents load systems and polymer conveying systems/pipework’s.

“This was the first time we had used the services of Direct Engineering, and we have found Ray, Louise and their team to be very knowledgeable, and their work has reflected this experience. The workmanship and quality of the fabricated vessels is excellent. The vessels of over 16 metres high and 4 metres in diameter were delivered and erected on site, on time and in a safe manner.

“We would not hesitate to use Direct Engineering services again in the future.”
