Who we are

KSE through the years

 

Over the years, KSE has specialized in dosing and weighing systems and smart automation software for the animal feed industry. We are clearly focused on continuous innovation, which is passed from generation to generation. The animal feed industry is our focus market. Personal contact, excellent service and a passion for the powder and granulate processing industry are key. This has helped us grow from a small company to an international business with activities worldwide. In 2023, KSE will celebrate its 50th anniversary.

Supervisory Board

The founding family

KSE’s three founding members form the supervisory board of KSE. With a continuous focus on knowledge, innovation and process, we strive to be specialists in our industry. People are our greatest asset, and their in-depth knowledge of the animal nutrition industry makes KSE a unique company.
