New construction in full swing!
Start new construction for better automation and inventory management
Construction has started on the 'De Boog' building, named after the roof shape. The building houses the workshop/machine factory of the TD, the office for the Expedition and the storage hall for the empty bins.
A fire in the production halls halted production in 2008. After hard work from the entire team, we got this back on track within a month.
Because the permit for pig stables in Zevenhuizen did not work out immediately, Smits started a pig farm in Vorden. After 6 years, the construction of the stables in Zevenhuizen with a capacity of 5,000 pigs started.
Smits puts a lot of energy into the development of new machines. This year Smits built the 1st version of the cistern for feed production. The beginning of the common and unique processing method.
In 1989, the Smits Brothers left Hazerswoude-Rijndijk for the construction of the N11. Feed production and cheese processing are being further optimized on a new piece of land in Zevenhuizen.
Because good pieces of cheese also came in through dairies, a new process was started in 1984 for the reuse of the cheese for human consumption.
Due to high feed prices, the Brothers Smits started looking for alternatives. Contact was made with food manufacturers. This was the start of circular feed production for pigs.
