How it started
APH Group is founded in 1997. At the time, Wytse Oosterbaan (owner & founder of APH Group) had a partnership with HZPC Holland, an exporter of seed potatoes in various agronomic projects in Russia and some other countries. Back then, it was a common practice to sell full projects to farmers and agro holdings, including seeds and equipment.
Along the road, Wytse realized that sometimes the equipment delivered to specific projects didn’t have the right technology for the local conditions. That made him decide:
“I have to change this and offer the full package. Namely machines with the right advice and service included. Particularly we take into account the local circumstances of farmers and agro holdings.”
Therewith APH Group was born!
From then on, delivering the right technology for the specific local circumstances remains the key success factor for APH Group.
