Lely continues its focus by divesting in Lely Aircon

Intention to sell wind turbine operations to Bettink Service Team

Due to their strategic focus on robotics and data within the dairy farming segment, Lely intends to sell its Lely Aircon wind turbine operations to Bettink Service Team. The Lely Aircon activities will be part of BestWatt, Bettink’s total solution for sustainable energy.

Lely continues to grow in robotics and farm management data in a positive economic climate

Over the years Lely Aircon brought many sustainable benefits to dairy farmers, however for this to be a future-proof operation Lely would have to focus more on selling wind turbines at locations outside of the dairy farming segment. Lely’s distribution channel is not set up to service other segments and there is no intention to do so in the near future. Even though Lely believes in the sustainable benefits of wind turbines, it therefore does not fit its strategic focus anymore.

Lely has found a solid and reputable partner in Bettink Service Team who acknowledges the business value and growth potential of the Aircon products. Bettink has a wealth of experience in the installation, commission, service and maintenance of wind turbines around the world. Existing Lely Aircon customers can now rely on the specialized wind turbine services offered by Bettink. All employees of Lely Aircon will be transferred to Bettink Service Team.

Lely will continue to look at other options for creating energy neutral and circular solutions to minimize waste and make the most of resources available on the farm.
