Following the retirement of Dr Leon Furlong from Vencomatic Poultry UK, Vencomatic Group has made the UK distributor part of the global group.
Vencomatic Group said this move facilitates more direct communication between its farmers and its product innovation teams, allowing it to listen carefully to their needs and provide even better solutions.
In a statement, Dr Furlong said: “I am delighted to confirm that Vencomatic Group has agreed to purchase my interest in Vencomatic Poultry UK. Over the past 10 years we have been working ever more closely with our Dutch colleagues and it is a natural progression for both of the companies to join together.
“I have had the pleasure of visiting the amazing Eersel Campus which is the HQ for Vencomatic in the Netherlands, and count many of their employees as friends. I would like to thank the Van de Ven family, who own Vencomatic, for their generous support and trust over the past 10 years.
“I am proud that I leave Vencomatic Poultry UK with a team which is the best we have ever had. Thank you all.”
In a statement, Vencomatic Group said: “We are grateful for the confidence that Leon has entrusted in the group to strengthen the connection we have within the UK market. We are immensely proud of the UK team and how the business has developed. We aim to continue to provide the highest levels of customer service Vencomatic UK is renowned for.
“Despite a turbulent global market for the poultry industry, we believe that Vencomatic UK will be stronger and more resilient as part of the group, to the benefit of our customers.”
