Rietveld Equipment, LLC has its roots in producing onion sets. Being a producer of onion sets, we started using a garlic planter from the ERME company in France for commercial growers to plant the hybrid onion bulbs that we raised for them. Since then, we have been the distributor for their entire line of garlic equipment in the U.S.A.
Since the mid 1970’s we have had Allround equipment in our warehouse for topping and grading our bulbs, and now our grading lines are full of Allround equipment. We found no machinery company that could match the Allround quality and price. It was a natural for us to become the distributor for Allround in the U.S.A., since we had so much of the Allround equipment here in our facility an hour south of Chicago.
For the past 17-years John Rietveld has been designing and assembling packing and grading lines for products to be distributed nationwide out of our facility, with up to nine different lines operating at one time, with four dust-control systems integrated in the lines.
This experience combined with the expertise of the companies we represent, are why Rietveld Equipment, LLC is the best choice to help you mechanize your operation at a reasonable cost.
Along with Allround machines, we have started distributing Meconaf dust-control systems and Protec optical sorters to offer complete lines to our customers.
These three companies have thousands of installations in over 80-countries. Now we can offer the value and quality these companies have been providing around the world to the U.S. grower/packer.
