In 1968 founders Teus and Netty van Gent started keeping rearing animals, after which they switched to breeders. In 1970 Teus and Netty made the first hand pick nests for their own production houses. 1971 was the year in which the production and trade of nests for breeders and laying hens was started, after many requests from various fellow poultry farmers in the country.
After some time, the first type of automatic roll away nest was developed. In 1983 the first house was equipped with this system, which was an immediate success. Teus continued to develop, resulting in a completely new laying nest equipped with an expulsion system. In the early 1990s the predecessor of the current roll away nest was produced. In the following years, the innovations were further refined and the wooden laying nest model that is still in production was born. Since 1990, nothing has changed in the basis.
