ISF are specialists in repairing and maintaining animal feed mills.

 An essential part of the UK food supply chain, animal feed mills are often reliant on outdated infrastructure. Many have been added to incrementally over the years and machinery and plant is becoming outdated.

With continually rising demand and quality standards, many are struggling to cope and have significant engineering challenges. Timely repairs and maintenance are critical to avoid costly downtime and disruption.

ISF is on a mission to keep feed mills up and down the UK running smoothly and efficiently. With 35 years’ specialist experience, the ISF team is highly skilled at diagnosing a problem and coming up with a cost-effective and pragmatic engineering solution.

We are on hand to mend or fix damaged systems or processing equipment whether we have designed and installed them or not.

Not only that we will look at ways to smooth out animal feed milling processes for the longer term and work with your team to ensure all work is carried out with the minimum impact on production.

We always advise regular maintenance and checks of plant and machinery to ensure all systems keep running smoothly, avoiding breakdowns, and making sure plant works efficiently and for longer.

In the first instance we will arrange a site visit to assess the problem, advise on options and work with your team to find an effective solution.  We can also create a maintenance schedule to fit in with your operations.
