Our construction division takes the hassle out of new pig building projects – whether they are standard designs or tailor made to individual requirements. At QE we offer a comprehensive service from the initial design to completed construction. In addition we will also supply the most suitable fittings and fixtures to ensure the building’s long, productive life.
We can offer all types of pig buildings, whether slatted or straw based, for all stages of pig production.
Our workforce are qualified and trained across the spectrum of construction.

Dry Sow / Boar Accommodation
Since the abolition of sow stalls in the UK over a decade ago, Quality Equipment has had considerable experience in the design and construction of practical loose housing systems and service areas.
Quality Equipment can offer a variety of options for the farrowing house according to the system favoured by the pig farmer.
- Traditional farrowing crates
- Raised farrowing crates (dry-bed system)
- Balance floor system
- Freedom farrowing
Weaner, Grower and Finisher Accommodation
There are many options depending on the pig farmer’s preferences and the system employed. These can utilise slatted floors for greater hygiene, solid floors or a combination of both. At QE we are flexible enough to take into account such factors as the availability of the farm’s own straw and whether wet or dry feeding systems will influence the choice of design.
“New buildings are provided on a straw or slatted based system for all types of pig accommodation.”
