Foundation - 1979
Since the foundation of Insentec BV in 1979, later on Hokofarm Group, the company produces automatic feeding systems. These systems, for as well cows as for sows, are in principal based on individual, electronic animal ID. In 1982 we Introduced a fully automatic feeding system for sows in Group housing. The unstoppable increase in barn automation resulted in a fast and extensive grow of the company to a global, well known specialist in process management and barn automation.
Automatic milking 1997
To achieve one of the ambition goals, in 1997 we started, fully independent, with the development of a Automatic milking system. An innovative concept, never shown in the market before. With the introduction of the now a days, well known and successful Galaxy Robotic Milking System, we won several prestigious prices such as : ‘Wageningen Innovation Award’ in 2000 the ‘Golden Robot Award’ in 2004 and many awards on several exhibitions worldwide.
As a result of the fast growing interest and demand for our products, the company has modified her strategy since 2006. The establishment of the new back office organization and the “Hokofarm- Group” contributed to an excessive growth in the current activities of our business.
We are a global driven and modern company with a worldwide structured sales organization via authorized OEM’ers, distributors and dealers. Besides the thousands of farmers, a large number of research centers, universities and large scale dairies are using the Insentec equipment and technology with full satisfaction.
