On Thursday, June 30, 2022, His Majesty King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands, accompanied by the Minister of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality, Mr. Henk Staghouwer, opened the newly restored Lely Campus in Maassluis.
Established in 1948, by brothers Cornelius van de Lely and Arij van der Lely, the company develops high-quality robots and data systems that increase animal welfare, flexibility, and production in the dairy farm business.
After the opening, His Majesty King Willem-Alexander was given a tour of the facility whereupon he learned how the products are being developed on the Lely Campus for the dairy farm of the future, in which sustainability and circularity play a central role. His Majesty and Minister Staghouwer also drank fresh milk. Yay.
