Viscon Hatchery Automation

Beginning in the 1990’s, Viscon Hatchery Automation has grown and developed with the industry and today stands as one of the market leaders in intelligent automation solutions for broiler, layer and breeder hatcheries worldwide.

While building on expertise with research, continual innovation and a pragmatic approach, each project undertaken whether it be standalone machinery, modifying an existing hatchery or helping to build some of the world’s largest hatcheries, has allowed Viscon to become a specialist in the field.

With a flexible approach, Viscon can adapt each and every component of its hatchery automation processes to any incubator brand and configuration found on the market today.

While it is still relevant today, automation for us has become more than just a way to reduce costs or improve on operational efficiencies. Viscon has diversified its automation capabilities to be able to offer you more. Topics like health, hygiene, disease prevention and traceability are just mere examples of what our automation can help achieve.

By promoting the ability to perform in-house manufacturing, a fully customizable and transparent experience is achieved with every stage from inquiry to aftersales service.

Our roots


Since 1927 our company has been involved in automation in the agro/horticultural sector, where we started out in the flax industry, the soft wire mater all used to produce clothing. This company was established by the great grandfather of the current generation owners, Jan Visser. After the demise in the flax business, in 1967, the next Visser generation started to buy and sell equipment in the horticultural industry under the new company name ‘Visser Horti Systems’.


As the horticulture industry rapidly grew and diversified, it created a demand for custom made machinery. The Visser family took this opportunity and started to develop and manufacture their own machinery and provide custom made automation projects. Years later, the experience and success in horticulture led to expansion in different Agro & Food related sectors, such as ‘Fresh Produce’, ‘Poultry´ and ‘Food logistics’.


The company is now being run by Ton Visser, Els Visser and CEO René de Vos. With Viscon Group we aim to create innovative solutions for the smart movement of products in Agro & Food. We invite you to become part of the Viscon Experience where we provide expertise, consultancy and in house produced equipment for your company.
