Symaga, one of the main manufacturers of industrial silos sector, announced that it would double its production and technical capacity with new investments. “If in 2015 the automation rate of our production was at 80%, Symaga now embarks on a plan to achieve full automation for our factory.

By 2019, the process of improvement in welding and bending lines is to continue, with plans for acquisitions of a high productivity drill for profiling.Banking on our constant investment in new technologies and human capital, Symaga reinforces its position as a market leader, doubling production and technical capacity, making us a reference supplier for the largest storage projects in the world.” Symaga said.
