Dutch feed milling equipment manufacturer Wynveen International has moved into its new premises in Heteren, the Netherlands on 1 December.
This building, a brand-new production space with offices at the ‘Poort van Midden Gelderland’ business park, replaces the premises at the business centre that had been home to Wynveen for the past few years.
Wynveen International is a leading-edge Dutch company specialising in the design, production and erection of complete plant and installations for the animal feed industry and the key equipment and systems used in them.
The innovative company has been producing machinery and equipment for livestock feed, aqua feed and pet food production for many decades.
Examples of innovations introduced by Wynveen include the CryLoc rotary sifter, the special extraction bottom, the hammer mills with two grinding chambers or adjustable brake plates, the unique vacuum coating system and the wide variety of mixers.
Wynveen is an well-known name in the feed milling industry. After a bankruptcy it became part of the Kroymans holding where it did not find any synergy with the other parts of luxury car dealer Kroymans. In May 2005 the company was bought by Ottevanger and since then business is up again.
Managing director Willem de Vaan said: “Increasing turnover and a growing workforce meant that we had to expand our office and production space. We also had an urgent need to carve out our own niche and develop a face of our own.”
The new premises were designed entirely with the aim of making Wynveen’s production process as efficient as possible.
It is spacious and offers plenty of room to receive guests. A solar installation generating just under 60,000 Wp has been installed on the roof of the new building. The solar power system takes up a roof area of more than 1,000 m2.
At a cautious estimate, the system should feed at least 52,000 kWh electricity back into the grid. With an advanced data monitoring system, information such as electricity yield, energy savings and CO2 savings can be viewed anywhere in the world.
