All our planting and harvesting machinery is approved to carry the CE marking and, if preferred, it can also be delivered complete with TÃœV certification.
The nice thing about developing a machine is that we then delve into the process together with the customer. Because it's not about the machine, it's about what the machine does and should do. And that's where the strength of Van den Beucken comes into play: we are rooted in practice. We know the processes and, quite simply, you can recognise that in our machines.

and in developing, manufacturing and servicing them
Initially, we made our name in the field of planting machines with our lettuce planter. In the late 20th century, this was the first fully automatic planter. For lettuce growers, the arrival of this machine meant that they could do a lot more work with fewer workers and in a much shorter time.
Planters for all crops
Today, we develop and manufacture planting machines for all the crops that one can imagine. Our goal is to always find a carefully balanced solution. A machine that does what it should do. No more, no less. Plain and simple. And just to indicate how good and durable simplicity can be, the lettuce planters we make today are virtually the same as those we made in the early days.
Harvesting equipment has to make your work more efficient. That is your requirement. And that's also the reason why you come to us because we make equipment that helps you bring your harvesting quality to a higher level. We mainly started doing this for customers in the Netherlands and Germany, but this has gradually spread to other countries as well, such as Austria, Switzerland, Poland, Italy, the UK, Belgium, Norway, Denmark and Latvia.
Attention to safety and hygiene
Efficiency is no longer the only requirement for your equipment. Safety and hygiene have also become critical factors in the design and functioning of harvesting machines. For example, can you do the work at knee height? Are you protected from the rain and the sun? Don't the crates make contact with the soil?
