VILLARTA DE SAN JUAN, SPAIN — Symaga is growing its presence in Asia with a project for one of the main bulk terminals in Indonesia and additional projects in Korea, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Vietnam and Japan.

“The objective is becoming one of the key suppliers of silos for the most populous continent on the planet,” Symaga said.

In 2016, Symaga supplied two projects in Bangladesh, including a new storage plant for Akij Group’s mill in Dhaka. Symaga supplied four flat bottom silos model SBH2444/26. It developed the extension phase and another plant for this group. Also in Bangladesh, Symaga supplied 13 hopper silos with a capacity of 16,037 cubic meters for City Auto Rice.  

Two years later, Symaga supplied silos to one of the biggest local business groups, Bashundhara Ltd. The new grain terminal with a capacity of 69,664 cubic meters enhanced wheat trade in the country.

In the same year, Symaga completed three projects in Myanmar: Kirim’s new brewery, with nine hopper silos; a new logistics terminal of 55,000 cubic meters with 13 flat bottom silos; and a wheat storage plant for a new Wilmar mill.

Symaga said it is proud to work with big companies such as Japfa Indonesia or Bluecraft in India, Batulicin rice milling and PT Wilmar Nabati milling in Java Island.

Logistics and safety storage play a key role in food security strategies. Symaga’s storage solutions have been chosen by the Thai government, together with The Phoenix 99, to supply a rice storage plant with total capacity of 49,660 cubic meters. The project is for the main cooperatives, San Pa Tong y Sawankhalok.

The Bangladesh government also is developing a food security project and installing a storage plant in Barishal with 58,448 cubic meters capacity through Cimbria.

Other important installations include rice milling for PT Buyung in Palembang and Sneha Farms in India that add 190,306 cubic meters in five plants and a mill for Alapala in Cilegon.
