Announcement of a partnership between Bck and Milbank brings specialist silage solutions to the UK




Pre-cast concrete specialists Milbank and European silage construction specialists Bck Silosysteme GmbH have announced the formation of Bock UK, a new company offering bespoke silage and biogas solutions to the UK for the first time.

The combination of the two companies’ expertise brings together more than 90 years’ experience in the design, manufacture, installation and maintenance of complete silage clamp solutions, including coverings.

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 Bck 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.

Bck installed 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.

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, Bck 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.”
