The partnership, said Ottevanger, will strengthen its presence in the global feed market, while it will enable Dinnissen to focus more on high-end processing solutions for food, dairy, chemicals, pet food and pharma industries.
The equipment manufacturers are both Dutch companies.
Dinnissen supplies process technology to the food, dairy, feed, pet food and chemical industries, both stand-alone machines and complete process lines, while Ottevanger specializes in the design and manufacture of equipment and the realization of complete systems for the grain-processing and compound feed industries.
Bolster will support the alliance in realizing its growth ambitions through its strong network and its knowledge in terms of organization, strategy and professionalization.
Ernst-Jan Ottevanger, CEO of Ottevanger Milling Engineers and the Triott Group said the alliance will bolster its growth strategy, while Frans Bakker, CCO, Dinnissen, said the two companies “complement each other very nicely.”
Major feed mill build in the UK
A UK feed project is bringing together Ottevanger Milling Engineers and several fellow sister companies within the Triott Group.
The firms are involved in the building of the first major feed mill on the UK mainland for 20-plus years, following the formal agreement of a new £20m (US$26.8m) project with I’Anson Brothers Ltd, one of the UK’s leading, independent animal feed manufacturers.
Ottevanger Milling Engineers will manage and oversee the entire project, as well as providing most of the milling equipment.
IVS Dosing Technology (IVS) will provide the steam dosing technology used in the conditioning process as well as the liquid dosing systems for the mixers and coaters. Pellet Technology Netherlands (PTN) will deliver the innovative BOA Compactor for the ruminant pelleting line.
Top Silo Constructions (TSC) will supply the storage solution, and Inteqnion is providing the electrical control systems.
The turnkey feed mill will be built on a new greenfield site in Dalton New Bridge in Yorkshire. The company maintains that, when completed in the summer of 2023, the feed mill will be one of the most technically advanced and energy-efficient in Europe.
Initially, the new facility will produce multi-species feed - compound ruminant and poultry - on two production lines with an initial total capacity of over 30 tons per hour and the potential to double this capacity based on anticipated demand.
The project has been several years in the making and included reference visits by the I’Anson management team to various Ottevanger feed mills: in Luxembourg, Belgium, and the Netherlands.
