Innovatec Hatchery Automation, located in The Netherlands, and Agri Advanced Technologies (AAT), a subsidiary of the EW GROUP, have agreed to a long-term cooperation as independent companies.

“We at Innovatec have been working on diverse projects with various affiliate companies of AAT for many years now. In a phase of strong growth, my team and I are proud to become a partner of the EW GROUP. For this cooperation, both parties will bring their extensive experience and work capacities, in the area of hatchery automation and on providing relevant, proven and innovative technologies,” says Philip van de Loo, managing director and co-owner of Innovatec.


“With the acquisition of shares from Innovatec, we are strengthening and complementing our capabilities for the development of innovations and - most importantly - for creating market-ready applications,” reports Jörg Hurlin, managing director of AAT.

“The philosophy of both companies is to supply and support, worldwide, state-of- the-art hatchery automation concepts. Our solutions cover the entire process including R&D, sales, custom engineering, production, installation and aftersales. In order to secure the planned growth through joint new projects, synergies and the development of further international markets, we would like to expand our staff. We are especially looking for international sales and product engineering experts,” report both managing directors.
