The Holland Festival asks you to support those that have supported us by supporting our sponsors.

Our Principal Sponsor for 2019 is John Berends Implements.

John Berends Implements was established on the 6th October 1966, by John Berends at a weatherboard house in Narre Warren, Victoria, manufacturing grader blades, rippers, car trailers and carryalls. Increased demand required bigger premises and in 1974, the business was moved to Greens Road, Dandenong. In 1978 John Berends Implements moved to its present location in Frankston-Dandenong Road, Dandenong. By this stage the range of machinery had grown considerably. In 1997 after completing a Bachelor of Agricultural Science and working in the vegetable seed industry for several years, John’s son Derrick joined the business as General Manager. Derrick’s wife Meredith brought her skills as an Agricultural and Resource Economist to the business in 1998. In 2006 a further 2000 square metres of factory and warehouse space was added to streamline production. Continued investment in the business is evident with recent additions of welding robots and a high speed plasma cutter. John Berends Implements will continue to provide strong, reliable and price competitive Australian made implements well into the future. With over 50 years experience in the agricultural business, Berends is the benchmark in Australian agricultural machinery.   Visit their website
