Big Dutchman establishes a subsidiary in Italy
Big Dutchman, the poultry equipment supplier from Germany, is now present with a subsidiary in Italy, which started operating from Castiglione delle Stiviere recently. The new premises have 120 square meters of office space and 430 square meters of storage space. The subsidiary’s location in the valley of the Po in Northern Italy was selected for a good reason: the town of Castiglione is situated in the hub of the Italian poultry industry. “We believe in the potential of this market. Founding BD Agricoltura Italia was therefore a logical step to increase our local presence and truly place ur focus on the customer,” explains Big Dutchman Area Sales Manager Frank Moormann.
In the past, the Italian market was served from Germany. “With our own warehouse, we can meet our customers’ needs much quicker,” says Sergio Ferri, Managing Director of BD Agricoltura. The portfolio of the market leader for housing equipment in poultry production includes traditional and computer-controlled feeding systems as well as poultry climate control and exhaust air treatment systems. The scope of services ranges from small to large, fully integrated turn-key poultry farms.
A new exhibition hall will display the Big Dutchman product range in Castiglione delle Stiviere. “Having the actual products here helps us demonstrate how our poultry equipment works. An exhibition hall is also a great platform for presenting industry trends with regard to animal welfare and environmental protection,” states Ferri.
Many poultry keepers in Italy already know the newly appointed managing director. He has been working with and advising Big Dutchman customers from Italy for several years now. Ferri and his team in Italy have many years of experience and an outstanding knowledge of poultry equipment. They equip new houses and also always find innovative solutions when renovating old ones.
