About us

The Office at night

The office is built in a former woodwork factory. We kept the shape on purpose to keep the industrial appearance of the building. The façade is completely made out of glass. We used materials and techniques from the greenhouse industry. At the front of the building we erected two spaces that show the history & core values of the company. The main eye catcher is an Allround machine in full working order from 1972 in one of the rooms.

First Floor

The first floor is our office. In this office space the engineering, administration and sales departments are situated. The roof is made with a greenhouse structure which can open for fresh air. The used materials have an industrial look and feel. As a counterbalance, one wall is lined with wood.

Show room

On the ground floor we have erected a 150 square meter showroom, where we always display some of our machines. Furthermore we display storage equipment and principles.

Core values

From outside the building it is easy to spot the 4 pictures hanging in the front room. These four pictures represent the core values of Allround, the same values are also found throughout the website.
  • Clean water is a metaphor for responsibility for the environment. Water is a link to washing of potatoes and vegetables.
  • Cooperation as a metaphor that a project can only be successful if we act as partners together with our clients.
  • Healthy and nice looking food, this is what we want our customers to produce with our solutions.
  • Good machines and equipment from Allround with which our customers achieve the three above mentioned points.

Strategic Allies

 

Seed companies

Seed companies

In the industry of vegetable processing, seed companies like BEJO, Monsanto and Syngenta are usually the first to know which companies are expanding, which companies are mechanizing, and which companies might be in the market for new machines. Therefore, having a cooperation with seed companies is very important for Allround VP. The seed company is able to suggest machines. All of the world’s seed companies have a subsidiary within 30 minutes of the Allround headquarters.

Category Manager of Supermarket

Category managers of supermarkets are very important allies for Allround VP. Especially in the developed world, the category managers have a lot of influence in how the produce is delivered to the supermarkets. The category manager is able to demand processed vegetables, in the packaging he/she likes.

Dutch Embassies

Dutch Embassies

One of the most important kind of allies are Dutch and Indian embassies all over the world. Dutch and Indian embassies all over the world help supplying visas for customers that are planning on visiting one of the Allround VP factories. Besides the visas, especially the Dutch embassy in India is an important ally. On several occasions, Allround VP is mentioned by the Dutch embassy as an example of excellent performance of a Dutch company that starts production in India. Furthermore, the Dutch embassy occasionally organizes events in India like seminars and network dinners.

International Organizations

Other strategic allies with which Allround VP cooperates are international organizations like the European Union.

The European Union is most important for Allround because subsidies are awarded by the EU. Subsidies are very important for Allround VP because of the fact that these subsidies are very often the basis on which companies decide to take part in building new facilities. Therefore, organizations like the European Union are very important allies for Allround VP.

History

Allround Vegetable Processing

Timeline

Allround was founded in 1955 by the father of the current owners. The company was called ‘machinefabriek Huib Smit’. The company has seen great prosperity, and also great poverty. Be that as it may, the company has started many developments in the agricultural industry. In many cases, the company came too early with its innovations. 20 years ago, Huib and Gerard Smit became the owners, and the last 15 years the company has seen a strong growth again. At the moment Allround is active in over forty-five countries in five continents. We feel the future looks good and we hope to add a few more pictures to this timeline.

 

1955


Huib Smit, the father of the current owners Huib and Gerard Smit starts his company in Grootebroek. The activities consisted of fitting motors to barges and several dealerships of different kinds of companies.Huib Smit Sr.

Barges were used to transport the produce from land to the auction. The company had three employees and the main activity was doing repairs.
 

1960

Advertentie voor de Allround rooimachine
The company developed a planting and harvesting machines for flower bulbs. Until that time all bulbs were harvested and planted by hand. Allround was the first company to introduce the harvesting spin to sift the soil during harvesting. The machine was a self-propelled 1 row harvester. The R8 harvester was also used to harvest carrots on a sandy soil. The machine was a great success and a true breakthrough.


Allround planter





The program of harvesting machines was expanded with different types. Also the number of planters was drastically expanded. Furthermore, the company also introduces an automatic bulb counting machine , of which we have an original machine in our showroom. During this period the company grew rapidly, and at the highest peak, there were over 40 people working for the company.
 

1970

Allround takes more machines into production to process onions and carrots. Allround also exports to the former Soviet Union and the United States. Onion line were the main success in these countries. In western Europe, the company mainly sold chain graders for carrots.
 

1980

Allround telmachine
Allround has a very strong relation with a contracting company from Schagenbrug. From this relationship a new type of harvester is developed, as well as new types of planting machines for flower bulbs. Also different large projects in Saudi-Arabia and other countries in the middle east are realized.

1990

Huib Smit bij een Radial Grading machine
During the 1990’s Allround partially transfers the production to Poland. In the flower bulb industry there is a major switch from small casks to cubic boxes. Allround acts to this opportunity by offering machines for great value for money.
Gerard Smit bij een line







During this time, many flower bulb companies invested in new equipment, and Allround was able to take a good share in this market.
 

1995

Gerard Smit bij een lineAllround is approached to develop a processing line for potatoes and vegetables. During this period, the export of hybrid seeds and modern agriculture technologies to the former Soviet Union takes a flight. The need in these countries for graded and washed products increases dramatically. Allround develops the concept of Allround Integrated Processing Lines (AIPL’s).
Gerard Smit bij een line





With this concept a grower is able to process red beet, potatoes, onions, carrots and other beet root vegetables for the retail channel. With other words the grower becomes a wholesaler. Also during this period, Allround becomes market leader for large chicory installations in the Netherlands.
 

2000

Gerard Smit bij een line
The concept of Allround Integrated Processing Lines is a great success. A great number of lines is sold in Europe and former Soviet countries. There seems to be a trend for bigger processing lines, markets develop and customers that first used a small line now start to inquire about bigger lines. Also during this period a rapid growth in product range for Allround occurs.

Allround starts to work together intensively with different suppliers of weighing and packaging machines. The Hydrocooler is introduced and demand for high quality products for supermarkets increases.
