AGRARTECHNIK Service Awards 2018: The Best of the Best

The AGRARTECHNIK Service Awards took place at a gala evening held on Friday, 12 January in Würzburg, as part of the 2018 Agricultural Business Conference. For the first time – and to everyone's surprise – the overall prize for Germany went to two winners.

Agricultural machinery specialists had to answer around 300 questions to be considered for the AGRARTECHNIK Service Award. The shortlisted few were visited and carefully inspected by a panel of experts including Franz-Josef Borgmann (Honorary Chairman of the Federal Association of Agricultural Engineering) and Frederik Masur (Editor of AGRARTECHNIK). One happy agricultural equipment manufacturer is Fendt, with Fendt Sales boasting the Best of the Best specialist companies.

"I'm delighted that we have regional winners from every area again this year. It goes to show how strong our dealers are and how seriously they operate their businesses,” says Andreas Loewel, Head of Fendt Sales in Germany. "I'm just so proud that two sites that sell and manage our machines have been crowned overall winners for Germany. Farmers and contractors can use our Fendt products reliably and sustainably only if customers have a strong dealer on their side, to provide an excellent onsite service."
