A global leader in the development of automation systems for the intensive animal husbandry sector.
Fancom is a global leader in the development of automation systems for the intensive animal husbandry sector. The company’s objective is to create the optimal conditions, both in the animal house and for business management.
Fancom’s core activities are climate control, feed automation and biometrics. Fancom’s unique quality is the combination of their core activities and their focus on regulating the total process in the building. By combining these forces, production processes can be better controlled and managed. On top of that, an efficient automation results in considerable savings on production costs and labor.
The growing demand for animal proteins is challenging Fancom to find a way to produce meat in an animal-friendly way using modern technology. This should take place in a responsible and sustainable manner, with the fullest attention for transparency, food safety and animal welfare. Fancom puts the individual animal at centre stage, and alongside our climate control and feeding systems the company uses new sensor technology to get as much information from the livestock house as possible. The animal tells how it is doing and Fancom only intervenes if things are not going according to plan. Fancom calls this intelligent way of livestock farming ‘iFarming’.
Fancom’s ambition with iFarming is to create a new, global benchmark for animal welfare. Consumers determine the quality of food not only by the safety of the end product, but they also require safeguards about the welfare of the animals.
