’25 years of experience in data-driven agri-marketing’
Thieu Hendriks founded AgriDirect in 1995. With his background in market research, he was convinced that direct marketing would become more and more important for the agricultural sector. And he was right; the company started at the kitchen table and grew steadily from there. Since 2012, AgriDirect with its enthusiastic team of 60 employees has been located at the Leudal Business Centre in Roggel, the Netherlands, and Viersen in Germany.

International organisation with a second office in Germany
The German market has become increasingly important for AgriDirect. To enable us to serve the German market even better, we opened a German branch in Viersen in late 2009: AgriDirect Deutschland GmbH. In addition to our permanent German team in the office, a call centre has also been set up here. From our branches in the Netherlands and Germany, we service the international market.
Professional call centre
Our professional call centres in Roggel (NL) and Viersen (DE) are in telephone contact with agriculturalists in different countries five days a week. With the years of experience of our permanent call centre agents, they speak ‘the farmer’s language’. Each of our call centre agents is trained to become a certified call centre agent through an internal programme. The team leaders and scripting program ensure that your questions are asked in a professional way and you can obtain an up-to-date summary of the results at any time. And with our bespoke call system, you can be sure that your call time is used as efficiently as possible. With these tools and our in-depth expertise, we’re perfectly equipped to run a successful marketing campaign or market research for you.
