About us

  • Second generation

    Kortlever is a family business in the second generation, where the various product lines have been further developed in recent years in the bread, meat, snack and intralogistics business. Projects are becoming more complete and so is the total delivery of the Kortlever company. As basic constructions for our projects we process stainless steel and high quality plastics.

  • Since 1985

    Kortlever has grown into a dynamic and innovative family company with a base clientele over the past decades. Today, Kortlever is a global player in the area of  bread, meat and snack processing, with a wide range of intralogistic solutions.
