Bijlsma Hercules has made major contributions to the mechanisation of agriculture. Starting in 1938 as a farriery we have developed into a leading manufacturer of agricultural equipment for receiving – unloading, grading and bagging potatoes or similar crops. The move from farriery to manufacturer of agricultural equipment is not as a great as it seems. Franeker, the company’s headquarters, is situated in an important potato growing area. To improve their efficiency, seed-potato growers saw a need for mechanisation. While the products offered in the past were mainly standard equipment, today there is more flexible manufacturing for tailored equipment or installations.
Now that a third generation Bijlsma is at the helm, our red-and-yellow farm machinery can be found everywhere in the world. On every continent the quality and capacity of the ‘Bijlsma Hercules’ is unsurpassed. With nearly 70 years of accumulated knowledge and experience we can always offer the optimum solutions. Our head office in Franeker provides advice, engineering, planning, sales, production, assembly and service.
