The Start of Palletizing

In 1991, the Dutch engineer Alex Verbruggen was asked by a local farmer to invent a machine that automatically stacked bags of potatoes. This type of machine did not yet exist which made visualizing and developing such a solution very challenging. With a lot of effort and ingenuity, Alex finally succeeded in 1992, inventing the first palletizer and getting it up and running. His first customer was very satisfied and the good news soon spread among neighboring farmers. It wasn’t long before Alex began receiving more equipment orders and that is when he decided to start his own factory for production at a larger scale.

The World Market ready for Palletizers

The Verbruggen palletizer became well known throughout Europe, and in 1996 the first palletizer was exported to Israel. Verbruggen’s global reputation grew very quickly with the 100th palletizer sold just three years later (by 1999). With increasing business demand from overseas markets, Verbruggen then decided to establish a branch office in the USA (in 2013). The small business located in the state of Washington, initially staffed by just one person, has grown successfully in just a few years into a Continental Service Center with more than 10 local employees. In the meantime, Verbruggen also started a branch office in Bangladesh for supplementary IT support services.

2nd Generation Verbruggen family

Verbruggen celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2016. The company’s founder Alex Verbruggen seized this special occasion to hand over the baton to the second generation of the family. In 2019, Verbruggen passed the milestone of 1000 palletizers sold. Over the years, our customer numbers have continued to grow, with many loyal business partners abroad. Whether it is for new buildings or for upgraded lines, customers always come back to Verbruggen for their innovative solutions. The continuing growth of Verbruggen Palletizing Solutions goes hand in hand with the growth of our customers and the developing market – something that we are all thankful for.
