Grain Dryer Manufacturer Co-operation
19 Nov 2014
Tornum AB has formed a strategic business relationship with one of the UK's longest established grain dryer manufacturers, Allmet.
Allmet and Tornum will share expertise and resources for the UK market to focus on product research and development, whilst at the same time maintaining their autonomy.
Tornum Managing Director, Per Larsson, said: "Tornum and Allmet know the grain drying business. Together we can play to our strengths to deliver the best service and best product for both the agricultural and industrial market."
Allmet Director, Charles White said: "By working together our customers will benefit from improved technology, market leading products and new innovations. Building smart relationships has always made good business sense and Tornum were an obvious choice as we share the same ethos of developing tailor made, customer driven solutions."
Both companies offer turnkey solutions for grain drying, handling and storage, from in-house design and consultancy through to manufacture, installation and aftercare. The union between the Swedish and British businesses will not only allow a two way exchange of knowledge and skills but also provide increased operational efficiencies.
Fellow Allmet Director, James White added: "We share an enthusiasm for building a successful relationship with Tornum. The first exciting development from this collaboration will be the launch of a new Allmet range of industrial grain dryers for the UK market in the new year, with capacities of up to 300t/hour."
