Dutch feed manufacturer, De Heus, has expanded the premix side of its business with two new facilities in the Netherlands and Poland. 

The two premix production sites are located in Veghel in the Netherlands and Łęczyca in Poland.

“Traditionally, we export form the Netherlands to the rest of the world. From Poland we can cover the eastern part of Europe,”  Joost Belt, corporate director of marketing and communication at the Dutch firm, told us.  

The new facilities, he said, are built close to De Heus compound feed manufacturing sites in the same locations to allow easy delivery of premixes to its own factories. 

They are also located next to the existing De Heus laboratory facilities at the Veghel and Łęczyca sites, said the spokesperson. “This allows us to continuously monitor the quality of the raw materials and end products as well,” he said. 

The new builds includes the latest in technology to allow for considerable flexibility in production, said De Heus, which is headquartered in Ede-Wageningen. 

The Dutch compound feed producer already has premix facilities in Russia and Brazil. 

October last year saw it acquire Iberian feed manufacturer, Nuter, from a private equity group to ‘consolidate’ its position in Europe. 

A few months prior to that, in July 2015, De Heus purchased Serbian feed maker, Proteinka, in a move it said would strengthen its foothold in the Balkans.
