Farming – Agriculture

Varvel has been working alongside the key players in the agriculture and farming sector for over twenty-five years, allowing it become familiar with the main issues facing this sector, including ecosustainability and animal welfare, which are currently at the forefront.

In the agriculture and livestock sectors, the quality and distinctiveness of production, especially when it is autochthonous, are particularly sensitive to changes in environmental conditions.
Precisely for this reason, the solutions proposed need to be highly flexible and adaptable, from a technological point of view, to the different contexts in which our clients' companies operate, in order to meet their numerous and also specific requirements.

In all cases, every assessment must necessarily consider prevention and food safety as essential and priority factors for all stakeholders involved in the different phases of the agrofood chain.

The gearboxes which are designed, developed and produced by Varvel in the “Farming and agriculture” line are used for animal feeding, egg collection, opening and closing windows, field irrigation, environmental disinfestation and for many other applications, highlighting their extreme versatility.

Willingness to customize its solutions has enabled Varvel to become a leader and a reference point in this sector, resulting in partnerships with the main brands around the world.
