An owner-operated rural business located in Camperdown, specialising in installing silos and sheds and manufacturing portable livestock pens with solid annual returns.
Silo Improvements has three key work functions that make up the business, including installation of feed grain silos and installation and repair of augers and blower pipes used as feed for cows and sheep. Fabrication and installation of portable calf pens for livestock nurseries and installation of sheds and shed extensions on rural properties.
This owner-operated business does not employ any additional staff. For different business components not undertaken by Silo Improvements, another contractor is required. The current vendor ensures all day to day running of the business, quoting, installations, fabrication, and repairs are completed promptly.
The key features of the business are:
• Good reputation for a quick response to farmer’s needs and repairs
• Installation of grain feed silos for cows and sheep
• Repairs augers and blower pipes
• Fabrication and installation of portable calf pens for livestock nurseries
• Installation of sheds and shed extensions on properties
Silo Improvements’ main clientele are dairy, beef and sheep farms and includes some occasional commercial installation of large sheds. Most customers are repeat business as the equipment used for silos and running feed allotments requires regular maintenance.
The business installs silos ranging from 10 tons to 100 tons capacity. These are delivered to the required farm site directly from the supplier. Before delivery, the vendor builds the concrete pad ready to bolt the silo into place.
The sheds installed are delivered to the site in kit form direct from the supplier. Silo Improvements erect the columns and put up the frames and trusses. The roofing and flooring are undertaken by other contractors.
Silo Improvements fabricates the livestock pens on their property, so a new owner would need a suitable shed space to continue this manufacturing side of the business.
Silo Improvements has developed a very good reputation in the farming industry for its ability to quickly respond to a problem a farmer is experiencing. This response and repair time means the farmers have minimal downtime to feed their stock. This reputation has other farmers and businesses referring new customers regularly.
Included in the sale is the necessary equipment needed to run the business together with a cherry picker.
Silo Improvements would suit an owner-operator who is mechanically minded, experienced in welding and has a general understanding of engineering regarding erecting sheds and manufacturing stock panels. They should also be familiar with concreting and able to lay a concrete pad that is sound and thick enough to support a heavy (filled) silo.
