 Warehouse extension

VDL Agrotech has extended its logistic facilities with additional 2.000 m2 floor space to 8.500 m2. The increasing business volume required additional warehousing space. Furthermore the routing in the warehouse has been modified to increase efficiency. In 2017 new office facilities will be built, next to the existing building.


The product allocation in the warehouse has been organised such that the order routing and dispatch will be at the highest level of efficiency.

 Biggest broiler breeder house Poland

On June 7th the biggest broiler breeder house in Poland was officially inaugerated. The building located in the small village Lewkowiec is owned by Karolina and Mateusz Plewiński. Exclusive VDL dealer VHP for Poland installed the equipment. The house measures 32,5x155 mtr and has a capacity of approx. 34.000 broiler breeders. It ranks among the biggest broiler breeder houses in Europe.

In total 16 suspended chain feeder circuits for females and 3 Matrix male feeder lines are installed. All fully automatically winched. In the litter area automatic Rotra scratch feeders are installed.

Special ventilation system.
Ventilation system.

The house is very wide and requires a special ventilation system. During basic ventilation the air exhaust is controlled by 10 x 920 mm chimney fans in the ridge. The fans are frequency controlled and have low power consumption. There are no side wall inlets; fresh air enters the house through special chimney inlets above the automatic nests.


During summer days the Orion climate computer automatically switches to tunnel ventilation mode. In the end gable 12 cone fans are mounted, and in the front the tunnel air inlet system.
