About us

Broeke­ma is an inter­na­tion­al enter­prise that pro­vides tech­ni­cal appli­ca­tions for var­i­ous sec­tors. The com­pa­ny was found­ed in 1955 and has been ISO 9001 cer­ti­fied since 2015. The first prod­uct devel­oped and pro­duced by the firm was an instant suc­cess and proved to be a cat­a­lyst for the mech­a­niza­tion of the entire agri­cul­ture sec­tor. This inno­v­a­tive con­vey­or belt was made from the very best rub­ber and steel.

Even today, Broeke­ma still uses pre­mi­um raw mate­ri­als. It man­u­fac­tures its prod­ucts only in Ger­many, the Nether­lands, and the USA, in accor­dance with the very high­est qual­i­ty stan­dards. With sites in sev­er­al con­ti­nents, Broeke­ma is now tru­ly a world play­er. Around 90% of its prod­ucts are export­ed to more than 40 coun­tries. Broeke­ma is part of the Ger­man fam­i­ly busi­ness, the JÄGER Group.

Prod­ucts

Broeke­ma pro­duces and sup­plies var­i­ous belts and their relat­ed dri­ve com­po­nents. Appli­ca­tions and spare parts for har­vest­ing machin­ery and wash­ing instal­la­tions. But also parts for process lines in the pro­cess­ing indus­try and spe­cif­ic rollers, sprock­ets, and hinges. We have a large num­ber of stan­dard prod­ucts in stock, but because of the many solu­tions that exist for every unique sit­u­a­tion, we sug­gest you first con­tact our sales depart­ment for advice. See here an overview of the prod­ucts on our web­site, or down­load the Broeke­ma prod­ucts app.

1955 - 1965 1955 — 1965 Broekema’s begin­nings lie in the 1950s, when tech­ni­cal engi­neer Ham­min­ga comes up with a new inven­tion. His idea is that of a con­vey­or belt that lasts longer than any exist­ing solu­tion. His inno­va­tion turns out to be a major break­through in the mech­a­niza­tion of agri­cul­ture. And it gets noticed, both in the Nether­lands and far beyond. Busi­ness is boom­ing, at home and abroad. 1965 - 1975 1965 — 1975 The company’s pio­neer­ing role con­tin­ues to expand. In 1967, Broeke­ma starts to focus specif­i­cal­ly on the Amer­i­can mar­ket, with a ded­i­cat­ed office and pro­duc­tion line. In Amer­i­ca, the Broeke­ma name becomes almost syn­ony­mous with top-qual­i­ty belts. Var­i­ous patents for suc­cess­ful inven­tions are applied for. This cre­ates the basis on which Broeke­ma is able to keep devel­op­ing and inno­vat­ing in the sec­tor. In the years that fol­low, Broeke­ma con­tin­ues to set new stan­dards in the mar­ket. 1975 - 1985 1975 — 1985 Broeke­ma starts to focus on oth­er sec­tors, in addi­tion to agri­cul­ture. Broeke­ma con­ceives solu­tions for the fish­ing, indus­try and waste pro­cess­ing sec­tors. Demand from Amer­i­ca is con­sid­er­able. Broeke­ma is deter­mined to stay close to its cus­tomers, so it can offer the best and quick­est ser­vice. It there­fore plans to open branch­es in Amer­i­ca. This turns out to be an excel­lent move. 1985 - 1995 1985 — 1995 The com­pa­ny is now very much on the world map as one of the best pro­duc­ers of cus­tomized tech­ni­cal com­po­nents. Its lead­ing rep­u­ta­tion is under­lined by Broekema’s in-house pro­duc­tion facil­i­ties. Its prod­ucts are designed, devel­oped, and pro­duced in the Nether­lands. In 1989, a fac­to­ry is opened in Min­neso­ta, for the Amer­i­can and Cana­di­an mar­kets. Anoth­er plant lat­er opens in Cal­i­for­nia. The deci­sion to pro­duce in West­ern coun­tries helps safe­guard the high-qual­i­ty require­ments set by Broeke­ma. 1995 - 2005 1995 — 2005 Broeke­ma Belt­ways Inc. grad­u­al­ly becomes a house­hold name in Amer­i­ca. The pro­duc­tion premis­es in Min­neso­ta cov­er an area of 31,000 square meters. This means Broeke­ma can con­tin­ue to guar­an­tee short deliv­ery times. In 1997, Broeke­ma enters into a part­ner­ship with the Jäger Group. Both com­pa­nies ben­e­fit great­ly from this close col­lab­o­ra­tion. 2005 - 2015 2005 — 2015 In 2011, Broeke­ma opens its sec­ond site in Amer­i­ca, in Cal­i­for­nia. Two years lat­er, the Broeke­ma site in Min­neso­ta cel­e­brates its 25th anniver­sary. After oper­at­ing for half a cen­tu­ry, Broeke­ma now sup­plies prod­ucts to more than 40 coun­tries. With its focus on sus­tain­abil­i­ty, Broeke­ma has anoth­er trump card. The pow­er­ful com­bi­na­tion of sus­tain­abil­i­ty and prof­itabil­i­ty not only deliv­ers com­mer­cial ben­e­fits to cus­tomers, but also helps the envi­ron­ment. In addi­tion, Broeke­ma is cur­rent­ly tak­ing a good look at oth­er aspects of the pro­duc­tion process, find­ing improve­ments that result in ben­e­fits such as sav­ing water and bet­ter treat­ment of ani­mals. 2015 - present 2015 — present In 2015, Broeke­ma cel­e­brates its 50th anniver­sary. Broeke­ma is for­ev­er mak­ing plans. From the very first day, the test lab­o­ra­to­ry has been at the heart of the com­pa­ny. Pow­er­ful tech­nol­o­gy, durable solu­tions is the mot­to. The com­pa­ny has many patents to its name. And that num­ber is set to grow. But one thing will stay the same: Broeke­ma will always put the cus­tomer at the heart of all its activ­i­ties, and will con­tin­ue to lis­ten and look for solu­tions. Our his­to­ry
