In December 2010 MTE Transport GmbH has ended a cooperation of 6 years with slaughterhouse Astenhof in Hainspitz. The transporter will end activities for Sprehe group in June 2011.
In 1994, Dutch company Astenhof took over a poultry slaughterhouse in Hainspitz, Germany. Nowadays the slaughterhouse is owned by German Sprehe group.
At the start of cooperation in Hainspitz, Astenhof asked Van Eijk and Van Tilburg, both active in the transport sector, to commonly organise transportation of poultry towards slaughterhouses. In this period, MTE Transport was established. For this specific order, daughter Peer System B.V. developed the unique catch and transportation system “Peer System”.
After 6 years of daily use of the Peer System in practice, similar companies showed interest in it. MTE decided to quit transportation activities in Hainspitz in June 2011 and to engage in system supply for third parties.
