About us

VDL Jansen (till 2022 Jansen Poultry Equipment) was founded in 1986 by Mr A. H. Jansen for development and production of the first automatic laying nests. With his knowledge of technology and poultry, Mr Jansen succeeded in developing the most sought-after laying nest. Today the company offers a wide range of poultry systems and has grown to become a flourishing international company with its headquarters located in the Netherlands. As of 1 October 2020 Jansen Poultry Equipment is part of VDL Groep and as of 1-1-2022 we will continue under our new name VDL Jansen.

Combination of poultry and technology for the best result

The current vision of VDL Jansen is still the same as that in which the company started in 1986. Optimal production results are inextricably tied to the behaviour, habits and health of the animals. New systems are developed with optimal utilization of the knowledge of technology and poultry available within the company. Product development goes hand in hand with research and intensive collaboration between poultry specialists and technical developers.

Innovation and customer focus

Our ultimate goal is to provide customers with systems that enable them to attain optimal production results. We achieve this through continuous research into new, better and more efficient systems and solutions. The customer can therefore always count on having the latest, most efficient technologies that simplify and improve the production process. Personal advice and support before, during and after the purchase of poultry systems are also an integral part of the VDL Jansen approach. Because we develop and produce our systems in house we can provide the flexibility needed to give the customers exactly what they want.

Quality guarantee

Systems from VDL Jansen are known for their quality and reliability. The entire process, from development to final product, is carried out at VDL Jansen. This enables us to tailor our solution to the customer’s wishes and keep a close eye on the quality of our products. Another important aspect of providing top quality is the use of only the best materials and durable, reliable constructions.
