Innovation that Matters

We are always on the lookout for sustainable solutions that will make food production better, and we’re continuously developing new innovations supporting proven methods, and introducing new pioneering solutions to existing problems.

We spend 10% of revenue on research & development each year, which is expected to add up to over € 130 million over the next 5 years.

We are a curious bunch of engineers, and looking for new and better solutions, which matter in the big picture, is what drives us.
