Expansion Holland Malt

At the end of 2017, we finalised the expansion of the malting plant of Bavaria subsidiary Holland Malt in Eemshaven. All the stops have been pulled out to be able to complete the construction of two new malt towers within one year.


The new malt towers have a height of 54 and 32 metres. The highest one has three sprouting boxes, the lowest one only two. An ingenious transport system is situated between the towers and the silo.

Thanks to the two towers, Holland Malt is able to expand its production capacity from 140,000 tons to 280,000 tons of malt per year. An expansion that is very useful. Willem Swinkels, finance & operations director of the malting plant: “We want and can now serve the entire beer segment. Whether it concerns non-alcoholic beer, lager or dark beer.”
