The Americans were leading at that time when and their machines were the basis for new developments. The company became a B.V. in 1978 under the name Tieleman B.V. and made a dramatic growth, especially through the invention of an effective "evisceration machine", from which in the USA more than 400, this is a market share of 80%, were sold.
In 1981 the cooperation with Systemate, was terminated and cooperation with LINCO in Denmark was established.

More and more machines were developed for the dull and unskilled work to be replaced by machines. There were 11 patents applied for 8 different machines, of which 5 have been granted. In 1984, Tieleman BV became a holding company the operating company LINCO Holland BV was established.
