LICHTERVELDE, BELGIUM — SCOTT has signed an exclusive deal with SCE for the distribution of Belgian storage solutions in the U.S. market.

SCE designs and builds storage facilities for the food and feed industry with installations in more than 70 countries around the world. To improve access to the SCE product and service portfolio for customers in the United States, the Belgian-based company has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with SCOTT. The equipment and technology company will provide its sales and marketing expertise to empower sales on the U.S. market.

“High-quality industrial bulk storage is essential to have an efficient and reliable production facility,” said Pete Calderon, head of sales, at SCOTT. “SCE silos strengthen the SCOTT portfolio, giving our customers access to a broader portfolio of storage technology. The new patented mass flow system and bolt-free hygienic solution gives us access to new industries in need of this type of industrial storage.

“In the grain milling industry, for example, this premium solution offers an excellent strength-weight ratio with easy-to-install standard components. It is an alternative to traditional concrete slipform silos. This will result in a substantial saving on the overall installed cost.”

Andy Vanparys, head of business development at SCE, added, “SCE wants to eliminate any form of waste in processing facilities. SCE supplies the innovative possibility of integrating silo storage within a process building.  The square silos are used in different grain milling industries like dry pet food facilities, flour milling and compound feed manufacturers. As well as the smooth wall product we also offer the corrugated walls, which are often used for free-flowing products like coffee beans, rice, malt, seeds, etc.”

SCE’s track record already involves more than 700 projects all over the world, including pet food and coffee projects in the United States. 

“We at SCE share the ambition with SCOTT of finding the most efficient storage solutions for the client, making this partnership a win-win for both companies and most importantly benefitting the clientele served by both companies,” Vanparys said.
