Our Services

With locations in Somerset, Cheshire, Cambridge, Cumbria and Lincolnshire, Francis Flower is equipped to produce a million tonnes of powdered minerals every year to as low as sub 30 microns.

Each of our locations have extensive silo storage facilities, enabling multiple materials to be processed rapidly and without risk of contamination.

State of the art blending equipment enables us to incorporate customer-supplied additives or the combination of base components. We also offer controlled drying and screening services as part of processing, or as a separate service.


Our granulating plants mix fine powders with appropriate binder to produce granules ranging from 2-8mm, depending on customer requirements. Liquid and solid additives can be incorporated into any granule production. 

Customers who require material in bags can select a weight to suit their purpose. Smaller bags are packed onto pallets and shrink wrapped for safety and convenience.


Storage at our UK locations is supplemented with a national network of storage silos, which provide a capacity of 15,000 tonnes. In addition, Francis Flower has ship offload facilities for bulk powders up to 6,000 tonnes of storage, situated at Runcorn docks in Cheshire.  All our silos are remotely monitored by a web-based software system that implements our Dynamic Distribution Service. This guarantees that not only do our customers receive what they want, when they want it, but also optimises fuel and driver resources, enabling us to provide a cost effective storage and distribution solution.

Francis Flower has partnered with key customers to invest in specialist or dedicated equipment and we are always keen to talk about new projects to add to our already comprehensive capabilities.
