The AGCO factory in Wolfenbüttel (Lower Saxony) produces the Rotana round balers and baler-wrapper combination for Fendt. Last summer the assembly line was extensively rebuilt. During the modernization old and unused production machines, tools, furniture or even a decades-old forklift truck were sorted out. The discarded inventory was auctioned off among the employees at the end of 2020.
“Our renovations and clean-up campaigns have yielded many things that are not needed for series production but are still in very good condition. Through the auction, our employees were also able to benefit from the clean-up activities. Donating the proceeds to a good cause locally was a foregone conclusion”, explains Jakob Arnold, factory manager in Wolfenbüttel.
