Acquisition of Uniform-Agri in the Netherlands complements DeLaval within farm management systems. In a more and more automated dairy farm environment, data is key to manage the farm professionally and increase efficiency and profitability

DeLaval, the leading supplier of solutions for dairy farmers, has acquired Assen-based Uniform-Agri, a leading information management system provider for dairy farmers. Their management program characterizes itself through powerful substantiated analysis, custom links with process computers and a validated database. The company employs approximately 40 people. Uniform-Agri will continue as an independent company inside the DeLaval Group under its current name.

“It is our ambition to continue to grow Uniform-Agri business through the existing global distribution network and engage into future new business opportunities”, says Jan-Ove Nilsson, newly appointed Chairman of the Board of Uniform Agri and Vice President Business Area Capital Goods at DeLaval International.

Harm-Jan Van der Beek, current Managing Director and former owner, will continue in his role as Managing Director for Uniform-Agri. Harm-Jan has extensive experience in the dairy business and has successfully developed the company during the last 20 years.
