Scheme Considerations

Here are some examples that we would expect to take into account in order to put together a tailored scheme for you:

1: Average crop tonnage you expect to grow in any one year.

2: Average hourly combining capacity.

3. How much would you like to dry in one day?

4: Would you like us to arrange any Civil works or Electrical works that may be required?

5. What type of products will be running through the system?

6. How do you currently and potentially plan to store your product?

7. A budget is helpful to ensure we provide viable options for you to consider in a cost effective way.


Russ Thompson - Managing Director

Russ has been the Owner and Managing Director of Thompson’s Engineering Ltd since it started trading 6 years ago.

He has a long family history in farming and after leaving Skipton Building Society & the financial industry back in 2011, the business seemed like an ideal opportunity to dovetail into the work he would be doing for the farm.

10 years later and the business has grown into a well respected, flourishing engineering business with the sky as the limit and as a result has drafted in skill and experience to help him deliver his vision completing projects all across the country.

Russ's vision for the business is to continue to provide the best the industry can offer and create a bespoke package no matter how big or small whether it be one conveyor or a full scheme including a grain dryer, cleaners, conveyors, elevators and grain storage. His other key driver is understanding the need for backup and how important this is for our customers, hence the investment in our 24 hour breakdown service.

He is keen to ensure that we comply with all aspects of Health and Safety and as such has employed a dedicated Health and Safety co-ordinator to ensure that all schemes are well considered and delivered in a safe and efficient manner.

His plans for the future are to expand the business by opening up other depots around the country to replicate the success we have already achieved.
