Lely Group

A great place to work

Anneke Gouw

Farm Management Support Milking and Cooling

'My work at the Lely head office is a mixture of office work and practice. I like being at a farm to understand what keeps farm managers busy. Together with our customers, I seek to discover how they can optimize the level of health of their cows and management of their farm. It makes me proud if I can give them good advice. And what I observe in the field, I interpret for my colleagues in other departments so they can incorporate my observations in product development.'

Joop Savelkouls

Sales Manager for Benelux and Switzerland Forage

'As I have worked for ten years to build up our distribution network in the region, I know almost all Benelux dealers personally. This is useful, because they know where to find me. In practice, this means to be continually on the move, talking with customers and perceiving the needs of the market. In understanding the issues of dealers it also helps that I grew up on a farm. My love for robust quality equipment is just ingrained.'

Jos Seldenthuis

Software Architect

'Some of the trends you see outside the agricultural sector we have been working on here for quite some time. Self-propelled vehicles between cows, for example. This is working with “high tech” in a challenging environment – not in a clean factory, but with animals in a stable. I think that's marvellous. People outside Lely are always surprised when I tell them what we can accomplish with robotics.'

Why Lely?

Farmers all over the world make choices about how they set up and run their farms. Every day, we help them make the best choices for themselves and their farms. We do this by providing advice and innovative solutions that contribute to efficient farm management. For sustainable milk and meat production. Present and future.
