Permbrand SI Ltd

Permbrand is a South Island-based company supporting the agriculture industry nationwide.

Permabrand is owned and operated by Russell and Trish Crossen. The company prides itself on customer service, follow up care and maintenance which they believe is the cornerstone to the company’s success.

The recent move to new premises at 44 Izone Drive in the Business Park at Rolleston, with everything under the one roof, means the company is more readily available to meet its customer needs. The Izone site also provides Permbrand with an opportunity to diversify into other areas.

Permbrand began manufacturing portable stockyards in 2002. The versatility of portable yards suits a wide range of customers from life style farmers through to corporate farms, and they are also an alternative for those leasing or owning multiple units. The company was soon getting enquiries about permanent yards, so they diversified and permanent yards are now a core part of the business.

Another area developed within the last few years is support to equine industry, with the manufacturing of horse stalls and horse exercise arenas.

Meal feeding systems are another area of specialisation. Equipment is imported from the company “Roxell” in Belgium, which is regarded as the best in the world. The roller mills that Permbrand installs to support grain milling on farm are imported from a reputable USA company. These mills produce an excellent product and feedback from their clients has been excellent. The company also offers a maintenance programme to all clients installing these systems which, along with their excellent team of installers, has attributed to the success of the company in this area.

Grain storage silos are purchased from Dan Cosgrove Ltd in Timaru and erected on farm. Permbrand has its own staff for concrete placement for silo bases and a team for the erecting of the silos and grain drying equipment.
