Broekema Beltway California moved to a larger production facility in autumn 2019. Managing Director Jeff Eilers is excited about the move: “Our new facility is twice the size of the old one. We are ready for new production lines and look forward to all the agricultural projects that are coming now! More space is available not only for production, but also for the warehouse. The newly purchased factory building – just a few blocks away from the previous facility on Pioneer Ave – generates the required electricity by solar energy on the roof of the building.
In record time of only four days, the 65 employees moved the machines. Since November 1, 2019, they have been producing belts and rods for harvesting machines again at the new location, mainly for the nut, tomato, carrot and potato markets.
At the ceremony on February 14, 2020, Sebastian Jäger and Marius-Quintus Jäger, the managing directors of the German parent company JÄGER, opened the factory with the symbolic cutting of the ribbon. Four employees of Broekema Beltway California proudly guided the visitors in small groups through the new Broekema production facility, including numerous guests from the City of Woodland such as Councilman Tom Stallard and Community Development Director Ken Hiatt.
