A world leader in Poultry & Piggery Equipment
From humble beginnings in 1964, Plasson has grown to one of the most respected poultry and piggery farming equipment suppliers in the international agricultural sector.
Plasson SA, formerly known as PPA, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Plasson and was established when there came a realisation that the agricultural industry will become increasingly dependent on technology for successful and sustainable farming. Data shows that the number of farmers in South Africa are decreasing, while the average size of farms have substantially increased. Farmers are realising the importance of modernisation and technological innovation to continuously increase production, lower input costs and stay competitive in a global market.
Moreover, over the coming decade, meat consumption is projected to continue on an expanding path with the demand continuing to increase. According to the South African Bureau for Food and Agricultural Policy’s (BFAP) most recent agricultural outlook, chicken consumption is projected to accelerate again compared to the recent past, expanding by 27% over the next ten years, whereas egg consumption growth is projected at 9% for the ten-year period.
Farmers need world-class agricultural equipment, technological innovation and expertise to remain successful in a growing and challenging industry and this is where Plasson SA fits in.
PPA was the very first South African poultry equipment supplier to design and build panel housing in South Africa, a venture that proved so successful that panel housing soon became the industry standard in the country. Plasson Livestock started off with the now globally recognised Plasson Bell Drinkers, then developing the class-leading Nipple Drinking Systems and later adding automatic feeding equipment.
Plasson completes the package of equipment with a comprehensive Controlled Environment solution to suit any surrounding climate. Plasson SA is the official authorised sales and service agent for SKOV in Africa and specifically South Africa. SKOV is an industry leader and a world-renowned name on the international market for climate control and production monitoring equipment and software.
Plasson SA works alongside all leading poultry house construction companies in the industry, whether for broiler production, broiler breeders or commercial layers. Our wide range of feeding, drinking and ventilation equipment can be installed into, and can work with, any of the house designs and building types available. The installation of our range of equipment can also be adapted to fit any house type.
We offer a range of world-class nipple drinker systems for broilers and breeders which allow you to choose the nipple and flowrate tailored to your poultry production needs. Plasson’s watering systems are customized to meet the demands of all climate conditions and production environments, while our automatic flushing system enables drinker line flushing with full control of the flushing program via a Wi-Fi application.
Plasson Livestock also has wholly owned subsidiaries in Brazil, France, China, and Mexico, and selected distributorships and agencies that have been set up in key locations all over the globe. Efficient and committed client service, including aftersales service and ongoing support of our lifetime customers, are part of our offer that sets us apart from the rest.
