Growth of the company
The company of the Custers family falls under the Varketing Group and has grown to 500 sows and 5000 fattening pigs through an expansion in 2007 and a new fattening pig house built in 2014. Inno+ chemical air scrubbers and heat pumps were installed at both locations, Swolgen and Horst. At the second, we also included Triple EEE energy recovery.
As a result, gas is no longer needed at either. Because the roofs are also full of solar panels, this makes the company’s production energy-neutral. The heat pump makes use of the energy in the air scrubber where the water has a temperature of about 20 degrees. Because there is floor heating everywhere, thanks to the heat pump, the stables, the whole house and even the family swimming pool are easily heated.
