EASYFIX has announced the acquisition of Ameram Slurry Limited’s Aeromix system, which it will rename EASYFIX Slurry Technology, with immediate effect.
The company views the deal as the strategic next step in the development of its animal housing product portfolio.
Ameram has been supplying slurry management equipment throughout the world for over twenty-five years.

EASYFIX believes its newly acquired technology will benefit many farmers in their quest for lower emissions, reduced carbon footprint and increased slurry nutrients.
Michael Earls, managing director of EASYFIX, explained, “We are delighted to have completed the acquisition of Ameram’s Aeromix system.”
“2021 marks EASYFIX’s 25th anniversary and I believe our progression into slurry technology is a strong indicator of both the success we have enjoyed in that time as well as our ambition for the future.”
“Ameram has developed a unique, best-in-class product which I must commend them on. We believe we can take it to the next level by leveraging our existing scale, reach and dealer network to bring EASYFIX Slurry Technology to even more farmers around the world.”
Mr Mike Ross founded Ameram Slurry Ltd in Wiltshire, in 1994 and since then, has gone on to install slurry management systems worldwide.
“Aeromix has been my passion for over twenty-five years, and I am delighted that EASYFIX will carry that baton into the future.” Ross said.
“I truly believe that we are entering a new age of how we manage slurry, the importance of it and how it is policed. In my view, EASYFIX Slurry Technology, as it will be known, is the ‘next generation’ of slurry management. It does much more than a traditional slurry management device.”
Grant-aided in the UK and Ireland, there are numerous benefits to the EASYFIX Slurry Technology system.
Firstly, as confirmed by renowned Dutch agricultural research institution, Wageningen University, it reduces ammonia emissions by 51%.
Conversely, it assists greatly in the increased production of nutrients in the slurry.
Furthermore, it also eliminates the need for agitation, which, crucially, makes for safer environments for both animals and farmers alike.
With impending regulations on farming practices such as nutrient management, farmers will need to maximise their manure’s efficiency and rely less on artificial fertilisers, the company stated.
The company anticipates that this transition will lead to increased savings for the enterprise and improved farm-profit overall.
EASYFIX will run its new business arm alongside existing operations at its headquarters in Ballinasloe, Co. Galway.
EASYFIX Slurry Technology will be available to purchase through selected EASYFIX dealers or directly from EASYFIX Head Office.
