How we work 

Smart inno­va­tion

Broeke­ma has a pas­sion for inno­va­tion. There is a strong focus both with­in the group and for the ben­e­fit of its cus­tomer on func­tion­al inno­va­tions that make the dif­fer­ence in the field. With the hackathons Broeke­ma orga­nizes across sev­er­al coun­tries, and with its inter­nal inno­va­tion awards, it ensures that inno­va­tion remains an essen­tial part of the com­pa­ny. It could be the Eco Dri­ve inno­va­tion, triple rods solu­tion, or end­less­ly rolled con­vey­or belts that break less eas­i­ly — every year, the patents just keep on coming. 

The pow­er of co-creation 

Using its own R&D cen­ters in the Nether­lands and Amer­i­ca, Broeke­ma works close­ly with its cus­tomers on achiev­ing the best solu­tions to spe­cif­ic needs. The com­pa­ny is the offi­cial part­ner to many major names in var­i­ous sec­tors and is com­mit­ted to inte­grat­ed mod­ule solutions. 

Reli­a­bil­i­ty of deliveries 

Broeke­ma is well known for its out­stand­ing lev­el of ser­vice, through QRM (Quick Response Man­u­fac­tur­ing), for exam­ple. It has adopt­ed QRM as a busi­ness strat­e­gy, which involves focus­ing on opti­miz­ing the work­flow, reduc­ing response times, and greater flex­i­bil­i­ty. The com­pa­ny achieves this through train­ing and deploy­ing peo­ple in dif­fer­ent func­tions, the opti­mum orga­ni­za­tion of work, and the use of small project teams. It also has two large fac­to­ries in Amer­i­ca, there­by guar­an­tee­ing reli­able ser­vice and fast deliv­ery times all over the world.

“When har­vest­ing our shal­lots, the pitch size turned out to be too big. Broeke­ma advised using a small­er size. Thanks to Broeke­ma deliv­er­ing this small­er pitch size so rapid­ly, we were able to con­tin­ue our har­vest very quickly.”

“We have been work­ing with Broeke­ma for 30 years now and are very sat­is­fied with the high lev­el of ser­vice they pro­vide. For exam­ple, we recent­ly asked for two new designs for con­vey­or belts. Broeke­ma made detailed draw­ings, made sev­er­al on-site vis­its, and always kept us up to date on the progress of the project. The result was an excel­lent end-prod­uct: two new designs that we are more than sat­is­fied about.”

“I have a small work­shop in Eng­land where pro­to­types are made. I recent­ly used Broeke­ma parts, and their qual­i­ty was out­stand­ing. Even with small orders, Broeke­ma still pro­vides excel­lent ser­vice. I would there­fore rec­om­mend Broeke­ma and look for­ward to work­ing with them again in the future.”

“EA Broeke­ma has been a major sup­pli­er to SFM Tech­nol­o­gy Ltd for 30 years. From my own expe­ri­ence and that of my cus­tomers, we know that Broekema’s prod­ucts are top qual­i­ty and per­form extreme­ly well in our machines. It is a plea­sure work­ing with Broeke­ma and we look for­ward to work­ing in part­ner­ship with them in the future.”

Sus­tain­able and envi­ron­men­tal­ly-friend­ly solutions 

Fruit nurs­ery
Broeke­ma has devel­oped a mechan­i­cal shak­er that sep­a­rates ripe and unripe oranges, does not dam­age blos­soms, and pro­tects small ani­mals. Good for the envi­ron­ment and good for the yield per hectare.

Waste pro­cess­ing
How can you dis­pose of more waste paper? With a Broeke­ma con­vey­or belt inside the truck that moves, shreds, and com­press­es the load. That increas­es the load­ing capac­i­ty by 30 to 40%, reduc­ing the num­ber of jour­neys and reduc­ing CO2 emissions.

Brick fac­to­ry
A brick fac­to­ry uses a flow of water to remove clay residues for recy­cling. The process uses one hun­dred thou­sand liters of water a year. Thanks to the devel­op­ment of the most robust and heav­i­est con­vey­or belt in Broekema’s his­to­ry, this wast­ing of water is now a thing of the past.

Beach clean­ers
Broeke­ma beach clean­ers trans­form many miles of beach every year. That is cer­tain­ly good for the envi­ron­ment and much appre­ci­at­ed by tourists.

Clean­ing
Since Broeke­ma replaced the dri­ve chains in street sweep­ers with dri­ve belts, there have been no more com­plaints about unnec­es­sary noise.
