Lely plans to expand its North America operation


Lely North America is setting its sights on a larger property in the Pella, Iowa, area on which to construct a new North American headquarters and production facility. 

With this expansion, Lely North America will significantly increase its production capacity for the latest A5 Astronaut robotic milking system. The company is one that has long been known for its development of premium robotics and data systems that increase animal welfare, flexibility, and production on dairy farms.

Several other dairy automation products currently in Lely’s portfolio will be transitioned into this new facility as well. The planning for this project has already begun, and Lely is investigating possible property solutions and project support needs and is finalizing building requirements.

“We are excited about our future in the dairy industry and believe this expansion is the next step that allows us to continue providing the total solutions North American dairy producers need to create a sustainable future,” said Chad Huyser, Vice President of Lely North America. “With this expansion, Lely North America remains the only dairy automation company manufacturing robotic equipment in North America. Nearly eight years ago, we made our first commitment to the North American dairy producers, and today we further that commitment to better meet the needs of our customers, Lely Centers and employees throughout the U.S and Canada.”
