Perry Engineering is a third generation family business founded in 1947. The current directors, siblings David and Claire Perry, aim to grow Perry Engineering into a market leader in the sub-Saharan Africa agricultural and grain storage sector. Perry is already well established in the territory and have been delivering projects in South Africa, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Uganda and Congo since 2016. 

Perry design and manufacture all of their drying and conveying equipment in house in the UK, and have two businesses in Africa, Perry Africa Pty in Johannesburg, run by James Morrish with more than 25 years experience in the grain storage and silo trade. The second one is Perry East Africa Ltd in Kampala, Uganda with their experienced team of sales manager Isaiah Langa, installation and commissioning engineer Joel Barigye and communications manager Brian Kyeyune.

Perry’s range of continuous flow grain driers have capacities from 5 to 150 tph. They have a very efficient, fully galvanised, pneumatically operated shutter discharge system and are controlled by their state of the art PLC touch screen control panel which has internet connectivity as standard. The software for this is written in house so if technical support is required you are talking to the actual designers of the software and the drier itself. 

They also supply a range of silos including hopper bottom bins with 45 and 60 degree cones and flat bottom silos up to 32,000T. They feature shallow corrugations to assist in silo discharge and have a complete range of temperature, moisture and CO2 monitoring equipment and sweep augers.

Perrys have a large quantity of spares at both African bases to support their current and new customers and also have conveyors and elevators ex stock from Johannesburg for immediate delivery.
