Nearly 350 people came out to the open house for Wilcocks Bros. and Westeel Storage Solutions on Friday, April 5th. The entire community was invited to come out and enjoy a lunch of hamburgers, hotdogs, veggies and donuts with pop or coffee and to view the new patented structured roof for 60’ to 108’ grain bins.

“We had a really good turnout today and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves,” said Harold Wilcocks from Wilcocks Brothers of Watford. “We are very excited to be working with Westeel Storage Solutions & John Ernewein Ltd. The 108’ roof which we have on display here is truly impressive.”
