Since the start in 1957 and with more than 60 years of experience, NPI has grown into a worldwide leading producer of water and liquid storage systems with a wide variety of uses. Serving a broad scale of markets and branches, NPI’s decades-long experience, constant focus on quality, and unmatched service makes them a beloved name with business all over the world. NPI is a Dutch producer of high-quality metal silos with internal liners, and excavated reservoirs. Although a great deal of NPI’s products end up at businesses in horticulture and agriculture, the list of applications is endless: storing temporary water for civil engineering, reservoirs for fish farming, fire tanks for emergency facilities, manure storage for agriculture, or molasses in harbours - NPI has a solution for all. Founded in 1957, NPI has in six decades steadily gained a name as Europe’s major water storage expert. “Because of our network of longstanding, successful 40  |  Issue 48  |  December 2017

distributors, we transport to locations all over the world,” explains Arjen van Dijk, water storage director at NPI. “We add partners to our network every year – we share our success with them.” Dealers and distributors are located in countries such as Canada, Russia, Europe and all over Asia, which means a lot of travelling for Van Dijk and his team. “We just finished a project in Russia, where we placed four molasses storage tanks with a capacity of 4,000 cubic metres per piece. That is indeed interesting, but it is mostly hard work.” Due to the modular system, ease of transport and the guaranteed long lifespan, the tanks are also getting more and more popular on remote locations. NPI can pride itself on exclusively providing the highest quality materials and solutions, and an unmatched service. “Because we are still a relatively small company, our lines of communication are short and decisions can be made quickly,” Van Dijk says. “It gives customers the swift service they are looking for.” Social

and environmental responsibility are core values at NPI: production is done with as little as possible pressure on natural resources. With various elaborate certificates such as KIWA, AEO and ISO 9001 on the way, NPI is committed to continuous quality and improvement. The company continuously invests in research and development, ensuring resellers and users are constantly provided with the best water storage solutions for now, and the years to come.
