A leading family company (1977)

Having our roots in livestock farming, it is in our nature to be very close to our end users. We are a global supplier of innovative automation solutions for poultry, pig and cattle houses. Our climate solutions, automation systems, management software, and the accompanying peripheral equipment, are all developed and produced in-house. 

Stienen BE is dedicated to providing total solutions for all companies. We find it very important that our equipment should be easy to use. And we also attach great importance to having a customer focus and considering things from our customers' perspectives. That is why we will never cease to invest in the knowledge, skills and reliability of our organisation and of our partners in your area. We do this because we believe in the future of our company as a family business


Our family company started in 1977 and is rooted in livestock farming. We feel committed to this industry. This is where we developed our expertise and made our investments. No wonder that this sector is every bit as important to us as it is to you. Even more so in the contemporary market where food production is on the increase and animal welfare is an important pillar. 

In 1977, Michel and Corrie Stienen started their family business, Stienen BE, in the back garden of their then home in the town of Nederweert-Eind, the Netherlands. 

After Stienen BE had started participating at trade fairs in Europe in the late 1980s, things went so fast that the company bought a new company premises in Nederweert in 1979. The growth of activities caused an expansion of the production space in 1984. An extensive renovation followed in 1992 and this resulted in a modern business premises with all the necessary facilities. 

More than ten years later, in 2003, Erwin Stienen joined his parents’ company. Two years later, we moved to a brand-new business premises at Mangaanstraat in Nederweert. This is the premises from which, ever since, our ideas, products and solutions have been finding their way to livestock farmers all over the world . 

We celebrated our 45th anniversary on 1 September 2022. 
We are proud of the many things we have achieved so far. We look forward to the future of our company as a family business with great confidence.
