Over a century ago, in 1909, Dirk Ottevanger founded a company for the manufacture and maintenance of windmills: Ottevanger Machinefabrieken B.V. Over the years his sons, grandsons and great-grandsons have applied the right business and technical talent to turn the company into what it is today.

With the arrival of the second generation in 1930 Ottevanger switched to mechanical installations for the grain-processing industry. Soon Ottevanger started on the manufacture of the first machines for milling and mixing grains and from 1960 on the design and manufacture of turn-key projects.

What started as a small repair shop for windmills has developed into a modern, international company. Plants built by Ottevanger exist all over the world. They are famous for their reliability and efficiency.

Since 2003 the company has been run by the fourth generation of the Ottevanger family.
