HE Silos Gunnedah is operating today as a proud third-generation family-owned rural manufacturing business supplying a wide range of custom designed silos to suit on-farm storage and large industries bulk storage.

With a silo range starting with easily transportable models from 4 to 120 tonnes capacity, the range moves into specialist on-farm cone elevated models with capacities from 140 to 500 tonnes. While flat bottom on-farm models range from 225 to 1000 tonnes holding capacities.

It’s been an impressive journey for HE Silos, with a history spanning over five decades.

And during that time the company has continuously evolved to meet the changing needs of local grain growers as storage capacities have grown along with the requirement to keep product stored for longer.

Behind the history

In 1969, Hillston Engineering was founded by Ivan and Patricia Morrison as a general engineering company located in the well-known farming district of Hillston NSW.

Over time, the company shifted its focus to the agricultural sector, working on projects that included upgrading farm machinery, building shearing sheds and supplying commercial grain storage facilities.

The company transitioned to exclusively manufacturing grain silos, leading to the establishment of the specialised business HE Silos.

When the Morrison family relocated to Forbes NSW in 1984 it marked a significant milestone, as it allowed for the establishment of a larger dedicated factory for manufacturing grain silos.

This move not only streamlined operations but also ensured that HE Silos could maintain the high-quality standards and increased volumes growers were expecting.

Son, Darryl Morrison along with wife Cherylee opened a second factory in Gunnedah NSW in 1997.

The decision to expand was a strategic one, as it positioned the company to better serve their clients in the north-western region of NSW.

This expansion not only increased production capacity but also allowed for greater flexibility in meeting ever increasing customer requirements. In 2006 Ivan and Patricia Morrison retired from HE Silo, leaving second-generation Darryl and Cherylee to take ownership of the HE Silo Gunnedah business. 

A subsidiary company was established in 2013, National Grain Solutions specialising in large-capacity onsite and kit silos, helping to strengthen HE Silos Gunnedah’s position in the industry.

This move showcased the company’s willingness to adapt to new market demands and explore innovative solutions for their clients.

Darryl, Cherylee and their Children DJ, Larna and son-in-law Andrew continue to manufacture grain silos with a commitment to quality and storage innovations that have been a driving force behind their success in the industry.

With a focus on quality, precision, and customer satisfaction, HE Silos Gunnedah remains a trusted name in grain storage solutions.
