Philip Dye, head of the India office. He will focus on the promotion of the company's tried and tested poultry systems.

Big Dutchman is pleased to announce the appointment of Philip Dye as Managing Director of its representative office in India. He will be based in Hyderabad, the capital of the southern state of Andra Pradesh. Some 18 years ago, Philip established a Big Dutchman agency in Great Britain, whereby he gained vast in-depth knowledge of the Big Dutchman range of poultry systems. In the last couple of years, British-born Philip relocated to the German headquarters and took over the implementation of major projects in America, South Africa and Turkey.

In his new role, Philip will focus on the further development and consolidation of the company’s broad range of poultry systems within the Indian market. This includes both simple
installations and high-scale turn-key projects, from the build-up of small farms to fully-integrated agricultural enterprises. Major focus will be put on promoting poultry equipment tailored specifically to the changing Indian market. Therefore, systems for fully automatic egg and meat production, including breeder management, are going to play an important role.

“Tried and tested poultry systems”

“I am really looking forward to this new challenge and to a very fruitful collaboration with our Indian customers”, Philip Dye commented on his new position. „The Indian market has enormous potential and I am confident that, given Big Dutchman’s many years of experience and knowledge, we can become a valuable support to the Indian poultry industry”.

According to Philip, the company’s many years of experience will be of great benefit as the “tried and tested” Big Dutchman product range will help ensure that the transformation from the traditional types of poultry accommodation to a world standard system such as the UNIVENT poultry cage will be much easier. 

UNIVENT poultry cage for efficient layer management

The UNIVENT layer cage for closed poultry houses, one of the world’s most popular manure belt batteries, is a good example of the product potential Big Dutchman has to offer. The easy-to-operate poultry system is characterized by a history of a long service life as well as high stocking densities and excellent housing conditions for the birds. This in turn leads to a better production performance and a higher egg yield.

The UNIVENT poultry cage is available with the proven CHAMPION chain feeding system which transports the feed evenly and consistently to the birds. A high conveying capacity is achieved so that a large amount of feed can quickly be supplied to the animals. Because of this, fewer feed is required to supply the daily requirement, resulting in a calmer atmosphere and reduced disturbances for the birds, as all birds are fed within a short time period.
