Allied Grain Systems Among Largest Employers For Young
They’ve won multiple national awards and forged a formidable reputation for innovative design and construction of grain storage and handling solutions over the past 25 years or more - and they call Young home.
Allied Grain Systems owner and General Manager, John White said that they were excited to be working on one of the largest, most high profile projects they had undertaken to date - the Port Facility at Wallaroo in South Australia.
“It’s the biggest project we’ve done,” Mr White said.
“We’re doing the complete build, including electrics.”
“It’s one of the major port facilities built recently in Australia, so it’s a fairly high profile project. We’ve been designing these types of projects for years.”
Once complete, the steel silos at the grain export facility will have 20,500 tonnes of grain capacity and a 500-metre rock causeway to convey the grain to a ship loader for loading onto the transhipment vessel. There will also be a bunker site with six bunkers with a total of 240,000 tonnes of grain capacity.
Mr White said the project had enabled Allied Grain Systems to grow and expand.
“We employ over 70 people,” he said. “We’re one of the largest employers in Young. We’re always growing and expanding.” “We have offices and workshops in Young and Toowoomba. We work all over Australia.” “We’ve got a lot of major projects planned. It’s a fair growth area - agriculture - at the moment. We do on-farm storage as well. That’s the other side of our business.”
