"We are delighted to welcome our new colleagues to AGCO", says Marc Matthäus, Vice President & General Manager of Global Green Harvesting. "The Lely Forage Harvesting Solutions Division is one of the leading manufacturers of balers and loading wagons in Europe and complements the full-line product range of our AGCO brands, Fendt and Massey Ferguson".
Our range of loader wagons is manufactured and marketed by the 70-strong workforce at the Waldstetten site. The variable round balers and fixed chamber presses are produced at the plant in Wolfenbüttel; a site steeped in history and employing 230 people.
"The quality and the technical innovations of the loading wagons and round balers fit perfectly to the Fendt brand", says Peter-Josef Paffen, Chairman of the AGCO/Fendt Management Board. "The longstanding expertise and commitment of the staff in Waldstetten and Wolfenbüttel will help us to achieve success with our newly extended product range of Fendt forage harvesting solutions."
