Company History

Company History

Hatchery Planning Company was founded as Southern Meter and Transformer Company in the early 1950's by brothers Bob and Ralph Allen. Southern Meter and Transformer supplied reconditioned standby power systems to all types of poultry operations throughout the southeastern United States, from small farms to hatcheries and processing plants. Bob and Ralph where most interested in hatcheries and recognized the need for improved ventilation in these facilities. Soon thereafter, they reformed as HATCHERY PLANNING COMPANY and began to specialize in hatchery design and ventilation. The poultry industry, still in its infancy, would be changed forever.

Until this time, hatcherymen had given little, if any, thought to the design and ventilation of their facilities. HATCHERY PLANNING COMPANY began experiments in the field and through trial and error, and hard work, developed superior formulas and designs, many of which are still in use  today. By improving ventilation and layout, HATCHERY PLANNING COMPANY   increased productivity and lowered mortality in hatcheries throughout the world. Over the next thirty years, the brothers enlisted a highly experienced team of engineers, design consultants, and ventilation experts. Together, they made HATCHERY PLANNING COMPANY the most respected name in hatchery design and ventilation.

Bob and Ralph have since passed away, but their family and associates have continued their work in the hatchery design and ventilation field. Today, HATCHERY PLANNING COMPANY retains the most experienced design/ventilation staff available anywhere and offers the highest quality services and products to the largest poultry producers in the world. We remain, as we have for over fifty-five years, the best choice for your hatchery design and ventilation needs.
