Polish poultry company Cedrob is building a new hatchery in the village of Kossobudy, Poland, with plans for the hatchery to be operational by early 2018. The hatchery, which will have a capacity for 5.1 million eggs per week, will be built in one stage.

Cedrob is equipping the new hatchery with Jamesway equipment.

Cedrob President Andrzej Gozdzikowski and Jamesway President Chris Omiecinski met recently to officially sign a deal for the future hatchery. The project will see Jamesway supplying 120 Platinum 2.0 incubators and 72 Platinum 2.0 hatchers for the operation in east-central Poland.

This endeavor represents the fourth Cedrob-Jamesway project since Cedrob first purchased Jamesway equipment in 2004. They have since invested in equipment for a single-stage hatchery in 2010 and later increased the capacity of that facility in 2014 to an annual output of 165,000,000 eggs.

“we know Jamesway, we know the support.  It was an easy decision,” Gozdzikowski stated in a press release.

Cedrob is a multi-family owned business with headquarters in Ciechanow, Poland, and is one of the largest poultry producers in the country. According to the WATTAgNet Top Poultry Companies Database, Cedrob has breeding farms, hatcheries, parent stock and feed mills. The company also has a retail chain.

Cedrob will celebrate 25 years in business in August this year.
