As a producer or processor of food, you know that hygiene is essential. The air quality must be optimal so that no contamination enters the packaging or the product during processing or packing. At Voets & Donkers, we specialise in creating an ultra-clean air quality for the production, processing and storage of food products.
Voets & Donkers designs, develops and builds air treatment installations that create a clean, fully controlled space. Our systems carefully monitor the conditions in the high-care area so that they are constantly optimal, both for the production process and for the people who work there. The temperature, air distribution, filtration (fine filtration and HEPA), CO2 concentration, ventilation and humidity are carefully monitored, among other things. By means of various techniques, such as ionisation, we filter microorganisms from the air, for an ultra-clean result.
Cooling in ultra-clean conditions
The (cooling) technology needed to keep the room at the right temperature should not, of course, detract from the high-care conditions. That is why we at Voets & Donkers use a lot of plastic as a raw material for both air coolers and air distribution systems. Plastic has the advantage that it is very easy to clean and that it is a substrate to which fungi and bacteria do not adhere well. The design of these products is done in-house, which means that the cleanability of a product can also be taken into account in the design. A design without no nooks and crannies prevents accumulation of moulds and bacteria and is easier to keep clean.
It is not only during new construction that Voets & Donkers can be of added value. We can also carry out our work for you during the use phase of a food-processing environment. Our people are used to working in an ultra-clean high-care environment and are happy to take your (production) process into account.
Techniques for food products
The design, production and delivery of a high-quality cooling installation or air treatment system starts with the concept. Our engineers combine knowledge of proven techniques with an innovative attitude.
From the food industry to pharmaceuticals and the high-tech sector. Voets & Donkers has been active for decades in many sectors in which advanced air treatment installations play an important role. We advise, support and unburden you completely!
In a carefully conditioned room, more than just the air treatment matters. Air distribution is also important. Voets & Donkers will be happy to select and design the right air ducts and air distribution for your situation.
Cooling and freezing cells
Voets & Donkers specialises in cooling and air treatment systems. But you can also come to us for the construction of your entire cold store or freezer. From a single regular cold store to advanced custom applications and large cold store complexes.
We have been active in the refrigeration technology with our family business since 1953. We are therefore firmly rooted in this industry. Over the years, our projects have grown in size, and the cooling installations have become more complex. Nowadays we supply cooling installations from large to small and from simple to very complex.

Advanced and energy efficient
Based on projects already completed for Lidl, an improved modern and energy-efficient design has been made for the new distribution centre based on the natural refrigerants ammonia (NH3) and carbon dioxide (CO2).
On Thursday, 9 June, Voets & Donkers was present at the Kleinfruitdag 2016. This is an international open day for growers of red and blue berries, raspberries and blackberries. We were there as an exhibitor at the information fair.
The SFC of Albert Heijn
It’s new, it’s innovative, but most of all, Albert Heijn’s new Shared Fresh Centre is big. With a floor area of almost 42,000 m2, it is one of the largest fresh food distribution centres in the Netherlands.
