Silo Jelicic d.o.o. company services


Companies that wish to enhance technological level of their production and upgrade their production capacities, or to optimize them by abandoning floor storages and by orienting on storaging bulk materials in silos can rely on knowledge and expertise of our team. We can advise you on solutions that will resolve your current and future requirements.

Silos – from the Greek word `σιρός` meaning grain pit- is a structure for preservation of bulk materials. Archeological data show records of usage of silos since 8th century BCE. First modern silos was designed and built by Fred Hatch 1873 in Illinois, USA. It was made of wood and used for storage of grain.

Advantages of silos storage:

  • They require less space for building and save the costs for needed land
  • Silos extend the expiration date of the goods stored
  • Silos have built in systems for protection of bacteria, fungi and insects which prevent the loss of stored grain (in classic storage these losses account for 2-6% of total stored quantity)
  • Silos are easily transported, built and put into function , which saves overall project time
  • Silos have built in systems for temperature control which prevent unwanted changes on stored materials caused by variations in temperature/humidity
  • They require no additional systems for stock management
  • Silos require less work force to operate them , up to 1:10 in comparison to classic storages and thus reduce labor costs
  • Silos minimize loss of stored materials due to human factor , but also due to other classical storage systems , as they function on a principle ALL-IN-ALL-OUT
  • In accordance to mentioned advantages silos give additional value to made investment, shorter period for return on investment and lower overheads

    Advantages of silo transport in comparison to conventional big-bags transport:

  • Saves minimum 10€/t in packaging an pallet costs
  • Higher productivity due to higher automatisation of process
  • Lesser (or no) loss at unloading
  • Higher quantity transported per individual transport
