The farmermobil Group, leading manufacturer of mobile poultry housings in Germany with ca. 120 employees, will continue to grow, supported by investor BPE and the management team.

farmermobil is Germany’s leading manufacturer of mobile stalls for keeping laying hens and rearing broilers.

Farmermobil has got three new shareholders and thus secures long-term growth. The farmermobil group based in Laer near Münster (“farmermobil”) is Germany’s leading manufacturer of mobile stalls for keeping laying hens and rearing broilers. The company has grown rapidly over the past few years and generated around € 20 million in sales in 2020 with over 120 employees. In order to take advantage of the excellent market prospects that are driven by the steadily increasing demand for regionally produced, sustainable food, the entrepreneurial family has expanded the group of shareholders.

Andreas Boden and Dr. Stefan Sattler, two experienced entrepreneurs, will take over the future management of the farmermobil group as managing partners in order to initiate the next growth steps and further develop the internationalization that has already started. They are supported by the German investment company BPE Unternehmensbeteiligungen, which has been specializing in succession planning in German medium-sized companies for over 20 years. In the foreground of the future strategy of the farmermobil group is the careful expansion of production capacities with the existing workforce at the current location in Laer while maintaining the proven corporate philosophy of the founder Franz-Heinrich Veltrup, who remains operationally and as a shareholder associated with the company.

farmermobil meets the trend towards regional products that are sustainably produced. Especially when it comes to keeping animals. And farmermobil offers stalls for laying hens and broilers, which on the one hand relieve the farmer of a lot of work and on the other hand guarantee the chickens animal-friendly husbandry. The family-run company developed into the leading manufacturer of mobile stables in Germany within a few years, combined experience in plant and vehicle construction with a series of innovations to create a species-appropriate, fully automatic mobile animal housing system.
