New production plant in Maasbracht for De Heus compound animal feed.

Construction of a completely new compound feed production plant on an existing site

In 2012, De Heus Maasbracht purchased a production site from Agrifirm Feed. The aim was to realize the construction of completely new state-of-the-art compound feed production plant at the existing location. In recent years, the entire plant, including the production process, has been renewed and reorganized from beginning to end. The project was finally completed in 2014.

Royal De Heus is a Dutch family-owned company.  During the last decades, De Heus has become one of the largest producers of animal feed in the Netherlands and is now also a key player on the international market. Worldwide, De Heus employs 3,000 people and operates in fifty different countries. The international headquarters of De Heus is located in Ede, Gelderland. 



The challenge put to IVS was to recalculate the entire plant and to optimize it in such a way that the latest requirements in the field of steam and liquid dosing technology could be met. 


De Heus had already indicated what the final date of delivery should be.  The project was so complex that it was necessary, from an early stage, to align the planning schedules of all of the stakeholders concerned. By perfectly mapping out the "old" production plant and keeping to a tight schedule, IVS brought this challenge to a successful conclusion. The end result is something to be proud of: a perfectly operating production plant in which IVS Dosing Technology has played an important role.  

Co de Heus, CEO of the Royal De Heus Group: "The new plant in Maasbracht is just what De Heus needed. From now on, we can continue to work on the growth of our organisation and satisfaction of our customers."
