SIA’s newest member in Houston, Texas, Alan Miner was Live at the Houston Livestock show & Rodeo.

Great show with one of my fellow Rodeo members and our wives. Pics of some of the events and riders, one close in name to Eunan, a bull rider, bull won. Mutten bustin for kids 4-6 in age, probably the rodeo favorite.

This show has grown in size since I started volunteering from 5000 members to over 30000 this year. They have given away over 18000 scholarships to kids since its inception and the entertainers only ask enough to cover their travel expenses and the rest of the proceeds goes back to HLSR for distribution to cover all the other costs & expenses.

Meet Flexi Bob!

In November Flexi Bob looked in the window of the SIA Ireland office. Since then we have adopted him and we take turns to come in and feed him at the weekend. Here he is enjoying the Donegal spring sunshine and waiting for his next feed.

Tackling new ground…

In 2017 SIA opened up their Italian office in the picturesque Tuscan town of Cecina.

Our team in Italy are Leonardo Calvaresi and Stephen Derbyshire. Leo and Steve have known Damien for over 25 years and as well as their shared interest in Flexitanks they share a passion for rugby. Leo can be seen in his playing days below.

SIA Italy have established depots in all the major hubs throughout Italy from Milan in the north to Sicily and all points between.


Who knew a shipping container would make a terrific pool?

Shipping containers have long been found to have a myriad of uses including Flexitanks. Who knew a shipping container would make a terrific pool.

Old shipping containers can be transformed into backyard swimming pools. We always knew those shipping containers were universal.

The traditional pool is a symbol of excess and waste. This is a little more modern, more modest. This pool can be resold, and you can take it with you if you move.

It’s an interesting concept, for sure, and the design, once installed, looks pretty slick. It’s as if your backyard was always destined to house a shipping container.
