Bijlsma Hercules has made major contributions to the mechanization of agriculture. Started in 1938 as a farriery we have developed into a leading manufacturer of agricultural equipment for receiving - unloading, grading and bagging potatoes or similar crops. The move from farriery to manufacturer of agricultural equipment is not as big as it seems. Franeker, the company`s headquarters, is situated in an important potato growing area in the north of The Netherlands. To improve their efficiency, seed-potato growers saw the increasing need for mechanization, and started challenging Bijlsma Hercules to fill in their requests. While the products offered in the past were mainly standard equipment, today there is standard flexible manufacturing for tailored equipment and installations.
Since it's founding in 1938 Bijlsma Hercules operates internationally as a specialist in logistics for the processing of agricultural crops. From acre to supermarket we offer solutions for optimal processing of your potatoes allowing you to enlarge your added value further.
