Establishment in 1968

In 1968, the one-man business under the name of TORFS CYRIEL was founded by Cyriel Torfs and his wife Emma Van der Auwera.

At that time the work consisted primarily of the manufacturing of machines for the agriculture sector, such as: sorting-machine for tomatoes, vegetable washers for leeks, carrots, celeriac, pot-press invented to form cubes of humus, pulverizers, etc. During this period, there was also cooperation with the technical department of ‘Boerenbond Leuven’. Our company was contacted for the supply of aluminum cover strips and for creating and delivering multiple parts for specific greenhouses.
