30-03-2009 | |

Poultry equipment producer Vencomatic from the Netherlands announces to open a new operation in Spain, Vencomatic Iberica s.l.

This new operation is the result of a joint venture with the Spanish nest and feed equipment producer GURA Automatizacionas Avicolas s.l. At the exhibition Fima Ganadera in Zaragossa from 24-27 March, the new company will present itselves to the Spanish poultry sector.

GURA produces automatic nest boxes and feed equipment for broiler breerders and believes that it has a very strong brand in the Spanish market. GURA currently has a production unit with 7 employees in Reus, Tarragogna, which will be renamed to Vencomatic Iberica.

The current general manager of GURA, Manuel Raigel, will stay in charge of the new Vencomatic Iberica operation. “The company has a large knowledge base and product package, which helps us to grow in the future. Especially for the alternative layer market, we think the products of Vencomatic are an important addition to our current product package,” he says.

General manager of Vencomatic, Koen Boot: “After having set up a production facillity in Brazil, starting a joint-venture in China, and opening several branch offices in the USA, Canada, the UK, Poland and the Far East, this step fits very well to the strategy of Vencomatic to have a strong local presence worldwide. By joining forces, we can all benefit of scale and knowledge available in the group of companies.”
