REI Helps Companies Construct Facilities for Grain Processing and Storage

As highlighted in a previous piece on the topic, Rogers Enterprises International focuses on grain processing and storage facilities in East Asia, Southeast Asia, and Inner Asia, making it one of the most important investments in the region. The demand for grain will increase dramatically as the population in Asia, which is where the majority of the world’s population resides, increases substantially. Rogers Enterprises International is poised to become the principal investor in grain processing and grain storage in Asia, and this makes for a solid and profitable investment for companies in the United States, Canada, the UK, Europe, and elsewhere.

REI’s Impact on Grain Processing Investment


Rogers Enterprises International focuses on the coordination with construction companies, engineering firms, governments, and private clients to put up world-class grain processing and storage facilities in the Philippines, Viet Nam, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Indonesia, Bangladesh, and India. The expertise in each of the areas creates a synergy that is very effective in getting perfect results in each and every project.

The Mechanics of Grain Processing and Storage

The use of grain as a food source dates back thousands and thousands of years, but the importance of grain has not changed in modern times. One of the most commonly processed grains is wheat. Wheat is milled into its constituent parts, and is either sold like this, recombined into another substance, or ground into flour which is used in baking.

The bucket elevator is an integral part of any grain storage facility. In modern construction, a rubber belt is powered by an engine. Attached to this are several buckets, typically made of high-grade plastic. These buckets move down to the bottom of the storage facility and scoop up the grain. It is then taken to the top of the chamber where it meets a device called a diverter. The diverter mechanically separates the grain into different classes, and the grain is moved to grain silos or to a feed mill, where further processing may be conducted.

As is evidenced in many situations in Asia, this is not the last step in the processing and storage of grain. Most countries have existing grain silos or other such storage facilities, but they have issues keeping the grain fresh. Spoiled inventory is the number one problem regarding grain storage in Asia. Rogers Enterprises International understands the need for technologically proven grain storage facilities for this region of the world. In order to meet the rising demand for grain and other agricultural products, Rogers Enterprises International and its partners must address the issue by constructing high-quality grain processing and storage facilities here.

Our engineers plan state of-the-art grain rotation systems which guarantee the food will stay fresh for as long as possible. The slip-form structures which house the grain are engineered to a specific set of conditions which abide by international standards. This part of our investment strategy parallels our mission for all of our business units in Asia.
