Bespoke bulk materials handling – a global industry

The storage, handling and processing of bulk and powdered materials is an important and integral part of many industrial processes. It is estimated that bulk materials handling in all forms represents one seventh of UK GNP and about 50% of the products handled by industry worldwide are in bulk or powder form.
