Scotland produces around three million tonnes of grain every year, of which around two million tonnes of wheat and barley is for use in the malting and distilling industry.
Grain merchants, A Inglis and Son based in Southern Scotland, are a valued customer of Cimbria and handle approx. 250,000 ton/year.
They insist that all of their dryers handle grain gently and economically; damage to the barley is unacceptable. With Scotland’s varied climate, they often dry their barley from 18% down to 12% moisture content, ensuring the quality of grain germination, which is essential in the malting process.
A inglis now operates 12 cimbria dryers at their sites. When asked why they selected cimbria as their dryer of choice, they said, “the cimbria dryer is a high-quality, tried-and-tested machine that does exactly what it is quoted to do. We have never had problems achieving capacity.
We have every confidence in cimbria machines, and they suit our business.”
