Revolutionizing Onion Processing Through Collaborative Excellence
In the dynamic world of onion processing, one company stands out as the epitome of innovation and collaboration – Rietveld Equipment (RVE). As our esteemed “Onion Business of the Month” for December 2023, RVE has been at the forefront of bringing together top-tier suppliers to create seamlessly integrated equipment solutions. Their visionary approach has transformed the onion processing landscape, offering producers access to cutting-edge technology from global leaders.
For the past decade, RVE has strategically partnered with suppliers, integrating their equipment with the renowned offerings from Allround Vegetable Processing. Recognizing the industry’s demand for comprehensive solutions, RVE has curated a selection of suppliers, some of whom are making their mark in the United States market while boasting a vast international presence.
The roots of RVE trace back to the Rietveld family’s rich farming history dating back to the 1800s. John Rietveld, the driving force behind RVE, initially ventured into distributing European equipment to mechanize the onion planting process, eventually leading to a fruitful collaboration with Allround Vegetable Processing. Today, RVE’s onion facility boasts numerous Allround machines, showcasing the enduring partnership between the two entities.
John Rietveld’s journey from a grower, packer, and shipper of onions to becoming the U.S. distributor for Allround Vegetable Processing speaks volumes about his dedication to the industry. Frequent travels to Europe, collaboration with Allround’s owner Huib Smit, and introductions to top machine builders marked the inception of the Partnership of Companies. This strategic alliance focuses on introducing U.S. customers to globally successful machine manufacturers, enhancing the machinery landscape in the U.S.
RVE’s commitment to customer satisfaction is evident through constant communication with partners via video calls and regular trips to Europe. With a history deeply rooted in agriculture, John Rietveld brings unparalleled knowledge of both machinery and market dynamics to the table.
The company’s reach extends beyond its farm roots, with installations and services spanning more than 20 states. RVE’s proximity to O’Hare airport ensures swift responses and installations, backed by a team of skilled technicians. The collaboration with Greg Kemp of Kemp Machine Company in Washington State further strengthens RVE’s presence in the Northwest, providing sales and service to the region.
RVE’s partnership model, the Partnership of Companies (PoC), includes industry leaders such as Allround Vegetable Processing, Upmann Packing Solutions, IPLA Palletizing Solutions, TANECO, MECONAF, and I.N.TEC. This consortium, with a combined turnover exceeding 100 million euros, underscores RVE’s commitment to delivering comprehensive and efficient solutions.
