About us


Empire Process Engineers (EPE) offer a range of manufacturing and installation services to the Dairy, Brewing & Beverage, Food and Healthcare throughout the UK and Worldwide.

We have been manufacturing tanks and silos along with pipework installations both at our facility and on customer sites for over 27 years.

Our extensive experience combined with our modern fabrication facility based in Swadlincote, Derbyshire allows us to manufacture bespoke vessels to suit all requirements and provide a comprehensive site service covering the whole of the UK.

From concept to build and in close collaboration with turn key project companies EPE has the flexibility and experience to deliver on their promises.


Our History

EPE was established in 1989, and at that time comprised of a small team of welders and fabricators.

Over the years we have steadily grown to meet the specific requirements of our clients and to adhere with today’s complicated approval and certification processes.

Our current workforce of over 25 staff now include fully time served trades people who are continually assessed and trained to the latest accredited standard.

In July 2000 we re-located to our current purpose built fabrication facility in Swadlincote. Thus giving us the scope to manufacture larger tanks and silos and increase our support staff.

In 2008 Rob Dolman and Lee McCarthy became Company Directors and 2013 saw the last original Company Director retire leaving the new to take the business forward under their control.
