Martien decided to travel together with his Maria. Not just travel, they went to all agricultural fairs they could find and explored the world! This allowed them to become acquainted with distributors and agents to carry out their concept. The journey started by car and went to Paris, Barcelona, Santarem, Galicia, Stoneley, Hanover, Poznan and other places in Europe. After one year, they also visited many places outside Europe. From Johannesburg to Beijing and from Manila to Toronto and Bangkok. Through the global visits to fairs, Martien and Maria found out many new products, and they met many new people. The export and import of the company were launched in this way.
The sons Harrie, Guus and Mark, lead the Schippers organization with the same enthusiasm and placed Schippers on the world map with a good team that finds pleasure in their work.
Schippers became one of the major suppliers for the intensive livestock farming. A professional company with 12 sales offices in Europe and active worldwide in 40 countries with a total of more than 350 employees. Martien never dreamed of this when he started in 1966.
