Dutch Quality

Many of our customers who visit us in Harderwijk and take a tour of our factory are often surprised and say: "I had no idea that everything is manufactured here in the Netherlands." The Ridder brand has been synonymous with quality for over 60 years. We owe this quality to the fact that we manufacture and assemble our products in our own factory - something we take great pride in! It allows us to control the quality of our products at every stage of production, right until dispatch. Since we've combined this quality with the global availability of our products, it´s no surprise that Ridder is widely regarded as one of the best drive system brands in the world.

Investing in growth

To maintain our high quality standards, we invest a large percentage of our turnover in our production facility. In 2014, our production facility was expanded by 27,000 ft2 to support our expected growth in the coming years. This additional floor space has allowed us to:
• increase our manufacturing capacity, mainly through robotic  
  and unmanned overnight production;
• better outline and streamline existing processes for more  
  efficient operations;
• provide better and more extensive facilities for staff.

Lean Management


In addition to maintaining the quality of our processes and products, we are constantly working to improve the performance of our organization. We use the principles of Lean Management to make our operational processes as effective and efficient as possible. These measures are mainly aimed at eliminating wastage and removing steps in the production process that do not add value for customers. We do this based on projects regularly involving students and other external parties.
