Bock UK has delivered a number of silage clamps throughout the UK and is fast becoming recognised as the farmers’ choice

Bock UK Ltd will offer a turnkey solution as experts in silage clamp construction and covering solutions from one source

Milbank has been based in Essex for almost 60 years specialising in the supply and installation of precast concrete products and solutions working in construction, agriculture, coastal protection, railways and stadiums.

With 30 years’ experience, Milbank’s new German partner Böck Silosysteme GmbH is the only provider in the pan-European market to offer a product range of silage clamps and covers from a single source.

Following the introduction of a feed-in tariff for electricity and heat from renewable sources in 2010, the UK market for biogas plants is currently extremely buoyant and the company believes there will be significant UK demand.

Böck installed the UK’s first silage clamp of its kind at Future Biogas in Norwich and three more have quickly followed in partnership with Milbank due to its existing manufacturing capacity and long experience in the design, manufacture and installation of pre-cast silo solutions. In addition to the UK biogas sector, the partners are also expecting an increasing demand for pre-cast clamp solutions from the UK farming industry. Bock UK has delivered a number of silage clamps throughout the UK and is fast becoming recognised as the farmers’ choice.

Sean Milbank, Managing Director of Milbank is optimistic about the partnership and the future of Bock UK Ltd: "The collaboration between two strong partners means a win-win situation for both Milbank, Böck and, most importantly, our clients,” says Sean. “Bock UK Ltd will offer a turnkey solution as experts in silage clamp construction and covering solutions from one source. Although the Bock silo system (known in Germany as the traunsteiner silo system) is commonplace in Europe, it is only recently that the UK market has seen the benefits. We are delighted to be able to combine the experience and expertise of two industry specialists to offer our customers significant advantages."

Bock UK will be exhibiting on Stand 27 at the Energy Now Expo at The Malvern Showground, Worcestershire on 15 and 16 February, 2012
