Working for the Lely Group means working in an ambitious international family business. We have more than thirty facilities and customers in over sixty countries and are the market leader in automated systems for dairy farmers worldwide. We are a forerunner in the development of grassland machines and a pioneer of wind turbines on farms. Recognised and acknowledged as a leader in Dutch manufacturing.
Apart from being a leader in our field, we also distinguish ourselves as a company with an informal atmosphere and a solid background in the agricultural sector. Our origins are in Maassluis (the Netherlands), where the company was founded in 1948. Even today, the Lely Campus is still established there. This is our head office and also a hub of innovation and creation.
Our unique combination of being a front-runner and a family business with a solid background in the agricultural sector is reflected in our core values: innovation, passion, progress, respect and honesty.
Our passion for the agricultural sector consistently brings us outside the realm of traditional ideas to come up with revolutionary concepts. With the introduction of innovative and ground-breaking products, such as our milking robot and continuous round baler, we have already enjoyed tremendous success. To meet the needs of our customers, at Lely we develop and manufacture highly engineered products. These are based on the latest technology in the area of robotics and data processing. We are very proud of this!
We work with respect for people, animals and the environment. We are open and honest about our focal point: the wishes, needs and dreams of our customers. Our passion for innovation and sustainability is based on this. Lely employees are driven and engaged. With the culture of a family business they are respectful, honest and entirely customer-focused.
‘Farmers must have the freedom to seize the opportunities that innovation and sustainability offer to run their business efficiently.’
