How Palletizing was born?

In 1991, the Dutch Engineer Alex Verbruggen received a request from a local farmer to invent a machine that automatically stacks bags of potatoes. At that time such a type of machine did not yet exist and this task seemed to be an impossible mission. After having overcome all obstacles, finally in 1992 the very first palletizer was invented and commissioned. The customer was very satisfied, he started to recommend this palletizer to his neighbouring farmers. Very soon, Alex received more orders from the area and saw the future potential of such a palletizing machine. So he established his own palletizer factory.

International Palletizing solutions

Not only farmers in the domestic market asked for this newly designed machine, in 1996 the first palletizer was exported to Israel. And since then the reputation of Verbruggen palletizers has increased very quickly. In just three years’ time (In 1999) the 100th palletizer was sold.
With the increasing business volume in the overseas markets, in 2013 the USA branch office was established. This small office in Pasco, staffed by 1 person, has grown in just a few years’ time into a Continental Service Centre with more than 10 local employees. In the meantime Verbruggen started a support office in Bangladesh for back-office IT support.

2nd Generation Verbruggen family business

In 2016 Verbruggen celebrated its 25 years anniversary. The company founder Alex Verbruggen has seized this special occasion to hand on the baton to the 2nd generation, among whom his sons Wouter and Maarten. In 2019, we will reach the magic number of 1000 machines sold. Over the years, our customers have become loyal business partners. When upgrading factories or when they need a new production line, they always come back to Verbruggen. The growth of Verbruggen Palletizing Solutions goes hand in hand with the growth of our customers and the market.
