The aim of the collaboration, in place since the beginning of this month, is to create maximum synergy between the operations.
The two businesses said the alliance should ultimately result in a larger and broader range of products and services for the compound feed and other industries.
This tie-up is about being able to provide the complete package to industry, said William van Willem de Vaan, director of Wynveen International, one of the companies under the Triott Group.
The legal status of IVS remains unchanged, he told us.
The activities of the Triott Group involve the design, supply and commissioning of complete factories and installations for the compound feed, aqua feed and pet food industry. As well as Wynveen, it is the parent company of Ottevanger Milling Engineers, Inteqnion, TSC, Almex, PCE and PTN. It has also set up a JV in the US called Anderson Feed Technology.
Frank Dielissen, managing director of IVS, said he expects this collaboration to enable IVS to develop its business activities in the coming years.
"The Triott Group has a widespread distribution network in countries where we are hardly, or not at all, active. We will be making intensive use of this opportunity. Our sales market will grow, both nationally and internationally."
IVS technical director, Hans den Otter, said the company has expanded recent years.
“Although steam and liquid dosing is the core business of our company, in recent years we have also distinguished ourselves with smart and innovative solutions that enable compound feed factories to make the production process more efficient and profitable."
Notable innovative technology coming from IVS, said de Vaan, is the POWLI.
IVS developed that dosing unit in 2014. It is designed to convert concentrated, dried micro-components into a liquid form. The company said the unit is now operational at various mixed feed production plants throughout Europe.
A significant overhaul project that IVS was involved in supplying equipment for was the two-year renovation project at Agrifirm Veghel, finalized in March 2018. All the machinery at the site, where approximately 750,000 tons of pig feed are produced annually, was replaced. That consisted of two milling and mixing lines and five complete pellet-pressing lines. IVS said it supplied the liquid and steam dosing installations required.
