Tobroco-Giant and its factory in the Netherlands have reached a milestone after the number of machines to have rolled off the production line reached 15,000.

The company celebrated with a special ceremony where founder and owner Toine Brock handed the keys over to Karel Beel, director of Firma Beel, a dealer that has sold Giant machines in Belgium since 2002 and France since 2015.

The first wheeled loader was produced in 2001 and since then Tobroco-Giant has also moved into telescopic loaders and telehanders.

It produced machine number 10,000 three years ago and has continued to grow with the introduction of new skid steer loaders and the expansion of its worldwide dealer network.

Founded in 1996, the company employs 160 people at its Netherlands base in Oisterwijk and a further 70 at its site in Eger, Hungary, which opened in 2013.
