Dou­bling of the pro­duc­tion area at Broeke­ma Belt­way California

Broeke­ma Belt­way Cal­i­for­nia invit­ed to the offi­cial open­ing of the new loca­tion on San­ta Ani­ta Dri­ve in Woodland. 

High-qual­i­ty prod­ucts for demand­ing applications 

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.
