Colleagues with 20 years of experience and young talent make Limex, together
Read here how Limex developed in the space of
almost thirty years from a small-scale custom crate washer specialist to an
international player in today’s market, where origin and roots are never
forgotten. A special process, in which services and machine construction go
hand in hand from the outset.
First crate washer
In 1982, the first crate washing machine was built and taken into use. At the time, the washing machines were transported from one vegetable auction to another on a trailer with a generator in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany.
Foundation of Limex Machine Exploitatie BV
Eight years later, in 1990, Jan and Annie Janssen founded Limex Machine Exploitatie BV . At the time, Limex consisted of a workshop in Grashoek and a small office, at Jan and Annie’s home, in the attic. Jan develops, builds and sells the washing machines himself.
Move to Koningslust
Limex grows in size and services and is forced to move in 1994. From that moment on, Limex is fully located in Koningslust (both office and workshop). Sales, rentals and services from a single location.
Relocation to industrial park Panningen
The growth of Limex continues and this means a new move in 2006. From that moment on, Limex is located in the building where the head office is still located to this day: on the industrial estate in Panningen.
Limex split into two different divisions
In 2018 Limex is split into two different divisions: Limex Machine Exploitatie BV which is focused on that focuses on the worldwide sale and rental of cleaning machines and LCS BV, which focuses on services: the cleaning process.
Limex handed over to son Joep Janssen
At the end of 2018, founder Jan Janssen handed over the company to his son Joep Janssen. The broad and healthy foundation that was laid over the course of thirty years, together with the energy of Joep, ensure that Limex can continue to grow. Limex is and remains a true family business, where service, quality and innovation are of paramount importance.

“It’s nice that the communication lines are short,” says Mr. Leo Berghs Trienekens. “You can just walk into the factory.” He was able to extensively view and test the float washing machines. “That increases confidence before purchasing. And as long as you keep the machine clean, there is actually no maintenance required. We appreciate Limex’s professional and personal approach”.

Christ Monden: “After I gave Joep Janssen a tour in the greenhouse and shared my wishes, he immediately had an idea of our wishes and the practical applications. That ultimately led to the installation of the washer, which enabled us to save a lot of water”
Improved cultivation hygiene for ImHofBio thanks to the Limex tray washing system
After examining many different machines, we finally settled on purchasing our new machine from Limex. We received competent and thorough advice before buying. Limex also adapted the new machine to our needs. In addition, our first few experiences have shown that the after-sales service and advice from Limex is also fantastic. – Hansjürg Imhof

“I have seen Limex machines at other fruit growers, even one that has been in use for 25 years and is still running. When I invest, I think it is important to invest in high-quality and well-functioning products that I will be able to use for years to come.” – Boer Erik
“To have a tray washer that works this great has really boosted our production at the nursery. The growing trays gets clean and we can use them over and over again in our production without any problems. I can highly recommend any forest plant producer to use a Limex Washer in their production line.” – Ronny Anngren
“The Limex crate washer meets our hygiene requirements (microbiological cleanliness) and produces a drying result of less than four grams per crate. This allows an output of 5,600 clean crates per hour, and that maintains our delivery capacity at an optimal level. ” – Jurgen Banken
