In connection with the generational change in 2015, we went through a thorough strategy process, which has led us safely through the first five years but third generation at the helm. In December 2020, we implemented another strategy process, in which we have set a new ambitious direction for SØBY towards 2023. The key words are credibility, digitalisation and growth.
The process has confirmed to us that our strength lies in the handling of solutions for medium and large farms as well as agricultural-related industries.
The analysis clearly shows that SØBY handles all customers loyally and faithfully. We pick up the phone when it rings. We help the customer when needed, and above all we have a really good product.
The direction and new goals are set with high ambitions for the future. To help us in the right direction, we have, on the basis of thorough analysis work in the strategy, prepared a new vision and mission as a guiding star for where SØBY will be in 2023.

SØBY's Mission towards 2023
“In partnership with competent dealers, SØBY offers the modern agro-industry a recognized and well-documented product program within aeration and transport of crops, responsibly produced in a high-tech environment. Innovation, credibility, employee commitment and service in a class of their own, together set new industry standards. ”
For several decades, we have focused on high-tech production. Today, the machine park includes CNC punching machines, robot welding, robot bending and our own CNC machining center - in short, we punch, bend and weld pretty much everything ourselves. We are behind our product. We can do this because we have shaped the steel with our own hands and machines, which will eventually become the end product. In a SØBY solution, you will find our fingerprints on 90 percent of the product, while special components from selected subcontractors make up the last 10 percent. It provides quality, coherence and, a high degree of flexibility in our solutions. We have our own test facility, here we sample solutions and simulate different situations. At the same time, we develop and test new products.
Under the menu item products, detailed information about the individual products in our program can be found. The machines can be used for transport and aeration. In these cases, ATEX compatible components must be selected according to the desired ATEX zone. All our machines are CE marked and approved. Our bearings, walkways and towers are classified as building steel, and are in accordance with DS / EN 1090-2, EXC 2 (CE marked).
We work closely with our dealers at home and abroad, that way we get very useful feedback on our products. A feedback we use to make product adjustments and changes.
