Bulk Solids Quarterly – Message from the CEO

Welcome to our Fall 2013 Newsletter. We are coming into a wonderful time of year here in New England. The colors are becoming extremely vibrant and so is our team here at Jenike. We continue to hire an amazing array of talent across all of our locations, we have opened our new office in Houston, Texas which is fully operational, and our structural design capabilities are taking center stage of late as we take on several new projects around silo and other bulk solids storage structural failures. Such structures fail with a frequency much higher than other industrial process equipment.  Whether the failure is catastrophic, such as the flyash silo discussed below, or a buckle or a tear in a silo wall, the cost can be enormous.  You will see it’s wise to treat silos with respect.  Speaking of respect, we are also introducing two of our star performers here at Jenike representing our testing facility in our Tyngsboro, Massachusetts headquarters, and our engineering team in San Luis Obispo, California. We hope you enjoy learning more about our first-rate team, our global reach, and our structural engineering group.  To discuss any particular application, please contact any one of our offices around the globe.
