UK Pig Farming Solutions
IDS History | UK Pig Farming
IDS was established in 1976.
The company was originally established to supply equipment to the Dairy sector.
In 1990 IDS developed a patented ventilation system for use in IDS’s modular pig housing concept – the Piggy Parlour™.
The Piggy Parlour™ proved very successful in UK Pig Farming as well as in Germany and Japan over the next ten years.
The mid to late 1990s saw a period of major growth within the pig industry. There was substantial investment within the sector, as producers invested in state of the art equipment to improve efficiency and reduce costs.
IDS was a major beneficiary and employment levels grew from 25 in 1996 to 49 in 1999.
Since 1999 the pig equipment market has become increasingly competitive.
There have been many new entrants into the market, but IDS has remained the number 1 supplier in this increasingly fragmented market.
Today IDS has 42 employees.
A comprehensive range of quality equipment is offered to the Pig industries with products supplied from Europe’s top Equipment Manufacturers and products manufactured in house. IDS also operate a steel fabrication Workshop, an essential facility in the support of contracts.
Our focus on quality is has never wavered despite the obvious attraction of cheap, low quality equipment and the continued growth of IDS is testament to the wisdom of this policy.
Holding exclusive distribution agreements with the leading manufacturers of Pig equipment in Europe and worldwide has ensured that we have access to the latest technology and are in a position to provide the most modern solutions to our customers.
As a provider of ventilation solutions in our own right we have developed and patented many innovative developments.
