Thank you for helping us reach this milestone!

In 2022 we have experienced an increased interest in field robots, resulting in a growing sale of the FarmDroid FD20 robot. It has been a successful, but also busy year for us so far. But it has been worth the effort as we have recently sold our field robot number 250!

Word from the management

The first six months of 2022 have come to an end. A period in which we thought we could leave COVID behind and go full steam ahead. Unfortunately, the events in Eastern Europe have disrupted these plans. Naturally, our thoughts go out to the people living in these areas. Despite the challenges in our supply chain, we were able to fill our production halls and are proud of the performance of our people. Besides the challenges in the supply chain, we were also confronted with huge price increases, which we had to pass on in our selling prices. Everyone has felt the effects of this.

Despite all the challenges, the backlog of our customers remains solid, which gives us confidence for the second half of 2022. As an international player, we are continuously working to expand our sales market. In the second quarter of 2022, a couple of colleagues travelled to South America after intensive preparatory research, where valuable discussions took place. These will certainly continue. We also developed promising plans for new products with our OEM accounts. We can determine that the first part of 2022 has turned out differently than expected, which has demanded a lot from our flexibility. A great challenge awaits us!
