As experts in design, build and installation, Don Valley Engineering is a recognisable machinery manufacturer and supplier based in Doncaster.
Established in 1947 by a group of experienced engineers, the company predominantly specialises in the delivery of first class screens, vibrating centrifuges, vibrating feeders, apron feeders, belt feeders, conveyors and specialist process malting’s equipment to complete material handling solutions.
Its central placement in the heart of Yorkshire coal fields meant conducting repair and general fabrication work for those within the coal industry made the most sense. However, continued progression enabled the team to shift their focus onto other areas and as a result, DVE is now competent at fulfilling the needs of individuals working amidst the processing of bulk materials & solid handling, specialising in screening, centrifuging and malting’s process equipment production segments.
“As the company evolved new industries and markets emerged, bringing new opportunities and challenges,” explained Group Sales Manager, Jeff Buxton. “We soon built a reputation with new and existing customers for consistency and quality whilst acquiring status as the supplier of choice for the sourcing of linear screens, centrifuges, feeders and maltings equipment.
“We can offer customers many significant benefits; this includes high equipment reliability, product longevity, good availability and reduced maintenance costs. Our capabilities extend to complete installation and site management with a dedicated aftersales service, which allows all of our customers the opportunity to realise what an excellent return of investment they gain by working with a company like Don Valley Engineering.”
It was in 2009 when the Don Valley group of companies were formed; a cluster of dedicated divisions each with its own industry-specific knowledge and expertise. The singular organisations are Don Valley Engineering, Construction, Maltings and Cleeve MH (a provider of material handling solutions to the water treatment, chemical, food, alternative fuels and waste to energy markets); departments set up to offer clients a more comprehensive & focused material handling service.
With its competent workforce and extensive range of equipment, DVE is strongly positioned to provide full turnkey solutions for the process industries and material handling of bulk solids and is widely appreciated for its competencies in operating within the heavy industries of power, biomass, iron & steel, mineral, aggregates and recycling. The selection of systems and services include conceptual design & feasibility studies, FEEDS, EPC, Design, Build, Risk Management, Site management, Site Supervision and CDM 2015.
“The company is very forward-thinking and is always looking to progress, either by organic growth or through acquisition of competitor services or other services (should the right opportunity arise),” Jeff concluded. “We hold trade shows in high regard and most recently attended the largest materials handling exhibition aimed for the aggregates industries, Hillhead 2016, where we demonstrated a live working linear screen designed specifically for the exhibition and marketed for sale at the show.
The company have recently ventured in to the Design and Manufacture of Standard and Custom site built Storage silos, hoppers and Tanks. Don Valley Construction, part of the Don Valley Group who worked closely with Portasilo, silo Suplier, installing their complete range of silos.
This new venture for Don Valley Construction, came out of the blue and not to miss the opportunity Don Valley Construction decided to take the bull by the horns and made the decision to establish themselves as a UK Silos supplier of choice.
This was a difficult decision and one that has proved to be very rewarding and successful. With a new range of standard silo design, 5 sizes in the silo range with varying volume capacities depending on material bulk density and the range of custom built on site silo design. The first objective for the company was to review their projected target and establish an accurate cost base and manufacturing costs. This would mean reducing engineering time and lean manufacturing was a priority for the company. Promoting the silo’s range and understanding the needs of its customers came as second nature to Don Valley Engineers, already familiar with Bulk Handling technology and industry process practices and experience.
The company now look forward to the future, welcoming new customers and existing customers of Portasilo, in the hope that Don Valley Engineering can continue to build solid relationships for the future and be seen to be continuing the work created by their predecessors to become the UK’s Bulk Storage Silo Supplier of choice.
