JOZ, founded in 1948 in Westwoud (West-Friesland), is a leading developer and producer of high quality products that automate the farmer’s labour in dairy stables and barns. The product portfolio includes manure robots, feed pushing robots and manure scraping, which JOZ is continuously looking to expand with new innovative products and solutions. Design, development and assembly are all done in-house in the Netherlands. The main markets JOZ is active in are the Netherlands, Germany, France and the United States.
As a family owned business, JOZ was looking for a partner to support them with the next phase, including further international expansion. JOZ eventually decided to partner with Rabobank, appreciating our international network and sector knowledge in the Food & Agri sector as well as our capability to provide growth capital. Market developments in the dairy sector are dynamic, making our Food & Agri angle of high value to JOZ in order to explore further growth opportunities.
We aim to help JOZ increase its market penetration with existing product offering, introduce new products in existing markets, diversify the product offering and potentially support buy & build opportunities.
