Specialist poultry hatchery Broederij Munsterhuis BV, located in the Netherlands, has expanded operations by more than 30%. Currently it produces a million day-old chicks per week.

“This expansion puts Munsterhuis well on its way to our target of 1.4 million chicks each week,” said general manager Bert Munsterhuis.

Munsterhuis BV has installed a SmartCenter Hatchery Information System by Pas Reform. The new installation has fully automated the incubation process and all its controls in the hatchery.

The hatchery, situated close to the border, anticipates further growth in Germany.
