About Us

Cost Effective Bulk Liquid Transportation
In 2001, SIA Flexitanks CEO Damien McClean patented his design of the Multilayer Flexitank. Today, over 80% of the global market is imitating his design. We at SIA Flexitanks are committed to maintaining our position as an innovative leader.

We are located where our customers need us. There are SIA offices in Europe, South-East Asia, Africa and the USA. We have a global agency network.

With an international presence and inventory on the ground throughout the world, our customers deal directly with the manufacturer, cutting out the hassle of middle men and saving them money.

The core values of SIA are to offer the industry choice, safety and value.

As the name suggests, SIA Flexitanks manufacture flexitanks. Our tanks are thoroughly tested and utilise the latest in thermoplastic technology.

We offer a bespoke package of high-quality products to our diverse range of clients who are looking to ship their products around the world. Every year SIA Flexitanks ships billions of litres of liquid to all corners of the globe. In 2016, flexitank loads topped 1.4 million, and this is projected to increase to 1.8 Million for 2017.

Not only are we the inventors of the Multilayer Flexitank, we also offer significantly reduced lead times thanks to our strategically located hubs. With a global presence and stock distributed worldwide, we provide comprehensive, cost-effective transportation solutions for bulk liquid cargo.

The award-winning team at SIA Flexitanks are experts in effective bulk liquid transportation and deliver unrivalled customer service. Our experienced technical sales staff will help you evaluate your requirements, and ensure that you have the best possible prices and the most suitable service for you and your customers.

SIA Flexitanks is an independent manufacturer. This means there is no conflict of interest, as may exist with our competitors who are freight forwarders.

Thanks to our great reputation and experience in delivering products in a safe, efficient and environmentally friendly manner, we have a large client base. It ranges from freight forwarders to blue-chip chemical and food manufacturing companies. Each client trusts SIA Flexitanks to deliver their bulk liquid, hitch-free.

 

All of our flexitanks are manufactured in our state of the art ISO22000-certified production facility. The tanks are quality-tested to ensure they meet the international standards for contact with food and non-hazardous, free-flowing bulk liquids. We comply with the likes of the US FDA, German BGA and the Japanese Canning authority, because we hold safety in the highest regard.

In addition to our headquarters in Donegal, Ireland and we have our own offices across the globe, with our Asian head office in Malaysia and our US office in Houston, Texas our professionals serve clients in more than 60 countries.

Around the world we are driven by our firm commitment to high quality and operational excellence across the regions, functions and markets we serve, every day.

Empowerment, trust and integrity govern how we do business and how we interact with each other. As individuals and as teams, we are making this the place to go, stay and grow.
