IPM Trade Fair Essen


From 24 to 27 January 2023, Willems Baling Equipment was attending the IPM Fair in Essen, Germany as exhibitor. The IPM fair is the world's leading trade fair for horticulture, and everything related to it. The IPM Fair is the world's leading trade fair for horticulture and the meeting place for the green sector. During the fair we saw many new and familiar people. Because of the corona it had been a while since we were able to catch up again.

We would like to thank all visitors for another successful fair!

Willems Baling Equipment automation also in Allen Bradley in addition to Siemens!

Newly developed

Industrial automation increases the productivity of tasks, processes and businesses. An important aspect of industrial automation is process automation. This includes installing and programming Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs). A PLC is an electronic device with a microprocessor that controls various inputs and outputs based on a pre-set program.

Each Willems production line can be equipped with an intelligent control system which perfectly attune the sub-processes to each other and allows an operator to easily alter parameters. The Willems control system is developed and built entirely in-house.

The advantage of a good control system is that an operator can start the entire machine line with just one push on a button and then get to work without having to constantly monitor the machines. This results in optimum capacity, efficiency, greater operational reliability, and of course improved safety.

In addition to Siemens, Willems can now also control its machines with Allen Bradley. Allen-Bradley is part of Rockwell Automation and is commonly used in the United States.

At the moment there is a fully finished VBB ready to be seen at the Willems factory in Hapert. The travel time from Hapert to the IPM fair in Essen is only one and a half hours by car, which means that you can combine a visit to the IPM with a visit to Willems Baling Equipment.

Willems Baling Equipment 30th anniversary!


July 2022, 

In July 2022 we had our 30th anniversary and that had to be celebrated!

Where Jos Willems started in 1992 in a small shed in Reusel with no employees, we have grown to be a wordwide supllier of complete packaging sulutions with more then 75 employees in our modern building in Hapert.

To cope with our current growth and to be prepared for the upcoming years, we have started the groundwork for the upcoming new building that is being built adjacent to our own building. The new building is much needed to make room for the production and assembly of future projects.

In honor of the 30th anniversary, there was a festive evening for customers and staff where they could celebrate the anniversary while enjoying a snack, drink and live music.


smarter bale size can save huge costs

Press releases

October 2021

Nowadays, we see often that customers choose for a slightly smaller bale size. Sometimes just 15 mm lower makes a huge difference in costs.

We recently had a case where a customer altered his bale size to a slightly smaller bale size:

This resulted that he could get 66 bales on the pallet instead of his original 48 bales/pallet. This resulted that he could get 37% more bales in a trailer. So he could save 37% of shipping costs per bale.

All together at a production of 500.000 bales / year, this saved him € 50.000,- per year. (on this single packing machine)

Not even taking his foil savings in account. A slightly smaller bale needs less plastic.

  • Saving in shipping costs per bale, in a period that fuel and shipping gets more and more expensive.
  • Saving in foil costs.
  • Better for environment. Less transport per bale, and less plastic per bale.

If you are interested in seeing what adapting your bale size could mean to you, please contact us.

Even on existing balers we can adapt the bale height, which can save you a lot of costs. we are looking forward hearing from you.
