In 1992 the family company VDZ Trading was established by John van der Zanden. In 2004 his son, Roel van der Zanden, joined the company to assist his father and making the company even stronger. Throughout the years, VDZ trading has continued to grow, and developed into the leading company in used slaughtering equipment
Our core business is buying and selling used equipment related to the slaughtering industry. By now we have almost 25 years of experience purchasing, selling, dismantling and rebuilding slaughterhouses all over the world. We have extensive knowledge of the equipment from all major brands and we use this knowledge and experience to help our customers make the right choice for their needs.
Because we specialize in used equipment, we can make every customer an offer according to their budget. We have a stockyard of almost 5000 square meters of high quality abattoir equipment in good, used condition. From slaughtering to water treatment and rendering systems. And if we don't have the right equipment available used, we can produce new equipment with the customers' specific requirements in mind.
We work together with renowned companies on the areas of cooling, panelling, processing, rendering and waste water treatment. Thanks to that we have the possibility to advise and assist in setting up complete abattoirs with all details included (Even up to the recipes if necessary!)Thanks to our broad approach and decades of experience in the field, we have been able to help customers build and expand succesful abattoirs all over the world. Our slaughter lines and other equipment are in operation in, amongst others: Australia, Canada, Cyprus, Ecuador, Egypt, Iraq, the Philippines, Romania, the United States, Surinam and many, many more.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
