It all began in 1978 when Noel Comer converted his father’s shearing shed into a workshop and began making and modifying farm equipment for the local farmers. Originally known as Goornong Engineering, Noel quickly gained a reputation for building quality products. Before long, Noel was asked by a customer if he could build a silo. “I’ll have a go” was Noel’s reply. The business grew and the demand for silos increased, forcing Noel and Lyn (Noel’s wife) to build a new purpose-built factory at the current location just outside of Goornong in 1996. This shed was designed predominantly for fabricating silos and this was where GE Silos was born and really started to thrive.

Noel continually improved the products as there was always something that could be better.
Sadly, in May 2001, Noel passed away after a short battle with Cancer. Lyn and Jason (Noel’s son) continued to grow and develop the business. This saw the expansion of the factory in 2007 with a 16 metre high tower to allow for construction of larger silos and in 2015 Jason and his wife, Carine purchased GE Silos from Lyn, taking GE Silos into the next Comer generation.
Noel’s passion for enjoying life, being genuine, continual improvement and always looking to help others are the same morals GE Silos runs with today.
GE Silos is passionate about innovating silos and making farmers lives easier by providing them with excellent products and excellent service.
