JOZ is a developer and manufacturer of high-quality integrated solutions, automating labour intensive processes in dairy and livestock industries. It’s circular product offering includes automated feed, milking, manure and circular farming solutions such as the innovative Nitrogen cracker.

Investment rationale

In March 2019, Rabo Investments acquired a majority share in the company from the Elling family and simultaneously appointed a new CEO, Arend Kuperus with a strong sector network. The partnership with Rabo Investments is focussed on an innovation strategy to expand the product portfolio while also expanding the company’s (international) footprint. An important milestone in this strategy was the acquisition of Fullwood Milking in 2022, which allows the Group to act as a one-stop-shop for (dairy) farmers worldwide.

“Together with Rabo Investments, our strategic ambition to further grow the business and develop new innovative products has accelerated. Thanks to Rabo Investments’ international network and knowledge, we continue to be a valued-adding and reliable partner to our customers worldwide, enabling them to do business more efficiently and effectively”
