How it all started
The milling history of the De Heus family can be traced back 300 years to the windmill in the famous painting of Jacob van Ruisdael The mill at Wijk bij Duurstede.
The founding of De Heus in 1911
On 28 April 1911, Hendrik Anthonie de Heus founded Graan- en Meelhandel H.A. de Heus [H.A. de Heus grain and flour merchant] in the city of Barneveld. The company grew and introduced many improvements over the years. A gas-powered engine was installed in 1914, followed by the construction of a new grain mill in 1926.
In 1951, the company acquired the property behind the mill and built a large warehouse for storing raw materials and chemical fertilizer. In 1956, the first modern silo was built on the same site. 21 metres high and with a storage capacity of 1,000 tons, it was used to clean the grains and dehull the oats used in the animal feed.
The move from Barneveld to Ede-Wageningen
In 1960, the old factory had become too small. The new factory had a storehouse on the ground floor and a pellet press, briquette press and mixers on the first floor. In 1963, the first silo for bulk transport was added. With the new factory, De Heus became one of the most modern feed companies in the Netherlands.
In 1973, a new silo was built to add more capacity to the factory. As the company continued to grow, more office accommodation was also required. In 1979, a new office building opened next to the factory. In 1983, a transhipment complex was built on the river in the neighbouring city of Wageningen to allow raw materials to be transported from the port of Rotterdam closer to the factory in Barneveld.
