The former and still active Fendtlers were welcomed by the Chairman of the AGCO/Fendt Management Board, Peter-Josef Paffen, who informed them about the company's current growth and thanked them for their long-standing commitment. In light of current sales, research and employee developments, as well as the extended Fendt Full Line range, Peter-Josef Paffen exclaimed: "Fendt is as strong as ever!”. With a short film on Fendt Field Day in Wadenbrunn, the retirees were given a taste of one of the highlights on the Fendt calendar. After a brief speech by Michael Schnitzer, Chairman of the Works Council, the former employees had plenty of time to have a relaxed chat about the years and moments they shared.
It was Beyaz Bahattin's first reunion. "Meeting my old colleagues is so precious," says the 64-year-old. "We go back a long way, I worked with them, had fun and sometimes spent more time with them than with my family. I'm here because I have missed seeing my colleagues." Beyaz worked at different sites and in different positions for Fendt for around 48 years, most recently as a training workshop instructor. His secret for a happy retirement after Fendt: "I may be old, but I'm always on the lookout to do something new. Never stop learning new things," he says, smiling.
