Quality ISO9001 certified

For us, total quality begins right at the very first moment of every new product. Several checks from the first idea via the prototypes to the production ensure that quality is part of the product itself. Due to our commitment to the animal market the test on farms is very important and key to our success. Our ISO9001 certified production system consists of permanent quality controls for every component. This ensures the highest quality of any product.


Every product is only as good as the service and support provided. Therefore, we are always reaching for the highest customer satisfaction. We provide not only the right products but also the best possible support for any application. Our after sales service – using all types of modern communication – is the base for long term running systems. Last but not least the intensive training we are offering to our partners guarantees our high standards worldwide.

Agrident History

Agrident BV was founded 1997 at Horst in the Netherlands. In 1999 we bought the Livestock EID business of DIEHL Ident, a pioneer of EID readers compliant to ISO11784/11785. In 2001 Agrident GmbH was founded at Barsinghausen as a site to develop and produce new EID readers for the livestock market with local partners. Until 2005 all activities were transferred to Barsinghausen and Agrident GmbH became the new HQ. Between 2009 and 2011 mayor investments brought all R&D and production resources under the sole control of Agrident GmbH. In July 2018 Agrident was taken over by Antelliq the World leading group for animal ID and monitoring. Since April 2019 Antelliq and Agrident are part of MSD Animal Health a worldwide leader in animal health products.
