Mission and vission

Herder mission

For more than 70 years we have been fabricating Herders which meet the specific preferences and requirements of our clients. Over the years, we have manufactured more than 20,000 Herder machines and pieces of equipment which are deployed globally in the most diverse conditions.

Herders are used in combination with nearly all brands of tractors and earth-moving equipment. Besides the modifying of tractors and other vehicles, we are also increasingly being called upon to devise custom-made solutions for the management issues of our clients. Notably, this has resulted in recent years in new applications for the use of the Herder arm.

We no longer supply mowing buckets, but also grass flail cutters and, for example, hedge mowers. Consequently, the area of expertise of Herder has moved from the traditional waterside to the management of all types of open space. Notable within this is that the demand for the management of specific spheres of activity continues to increase. On the one hand, this can be explained by the fact that Herders are being deployed in more countries. On the other hand, on account of pioneering technical applications.

Herder vision

You will agree with us; ditches, roads, verges, parks and other green areas need to be managed. Management extends the lifespan and provides for an attractive visual image. Currently, the maintenance of open spaces is subject to ever-increasing requirements. This includes costs, quality and indeed, sustainability. What you do is just as important as how you do it.

Within our vision, management is a question of control. Control, of course, begins with the workmanship and expert knowledge. But control also implies having a clear picture over investments and returns. With control, we, moreover, imply the pursuit of sustainable and responsible solutions, for humankind and nature. Users can therefore work in an ergonomically relaxed manner, and because they have an overall view, they can perform better and more safely.

For the natural environment, we continually make use of new applications which allows for ergonomically sound management. An excellent example of this is the ecological cutter. This cutter has been built in order that small animals and plants are spared during the job. Therefore, we also comply with flora and fauna legislation.

‘To manage is to control’ is how we see the world and it is from this outlook that we develop tools with which professionals can achieve this.
