Privé, the specialist of round silos since 1958

In 1946, Georges and Daniel Privé founded Privé SA. Since 1958, the design and manufacturing of round silos made in corrugated galvanized steel has been its main activity.
Today, Privé is reknowned worldwide for the quality of its silos.

Privé SA manufactures silos in Châlons-en-Champagne, in France, 200 km east of Paris. This location, near to the northern European harbours, facilitates the shipment to Europe and Africa, by trucks or by containers.
Privé silos are « Made in France ».

Who are we?

The commitment is customer satisfaction from the commencement of the project until the filling of the silos. Privé answers rapidly to the request for quotations.

Privé has always been in advance in the design of innovating equipment, as for example, since 1978, the manufacturing of wall sheets with a corrugation 104x12mm, which makes the flow of grain easier than a deep corrugation, as well as the Venticône®, created by the engineers of Privé in 1985.

Privé equipment is covered by a 10 year warranty (ask for conditions of application).

Privé has 2 teams in its design department :

> A team dedicated to the improvement of the products. This team works closely with the official control institutions to validate the design criteria according to the French and European norms, and also to the norms of the countries outside of Europe.

> A team dedicated to the design of the customer orders. This team works specifically on the design of the catwalks and access to the silos. Privé designs and manufactures all the catwalks and junctions to the other parts of the storage facility. This team works closely with the manufacturers of the handling equipment to take into account the requirements of each manufacturer.

Privé is ISO 9001 certified since 2009. Within the frame of the ISO norm, Privé measures its efficiency and modifies its process to enhance the satisfaction of the customers.


Since July 2014, the CE certification is compulsory to sell steel building constructions in Europe. This certification imposes to the manufacturers a more accurate control of the manufacturing processes, and a perfect traceability of all the components (steel, bolts).

Privé SA manufactures the silos with modern and efficient machines. The high steel stock allows short lead-times.

Erection on site
Erection on site
Every silo is delivered with a specific erection manual.

The investment of a silo is only useful if it is erected rapidly before the harvest or before import commitments of the customer. That is why Prive SA and the Prive dealers can propose a solution for the erection of the silos.
