AGRAVIS Technik group on the move
The AGRAVIS Machinery Group has invested a lot in recent months in order to become even stronger in performance for its customers. The reorganisation of the AGRAVIS Machinery companies with the separation of the sales departments of the brands Agco/Fendt and Claas in the region of Westphalia and western Lower Saxony, which came into force on 1 January 2016, plays an important role in this respect.

Gerd Schulz, managing director of AGRAVIS Technik Holding GmbH, emphasised: "The new brand strategy is a future programme that will benefit employees as well as customers and suppliers. We are building further locations and modernising our workshops." This promise is being kept.
Ladbergen was the first newly-built location. For the customers, it was a manageable relocation given that it was only twelve kilometres from Lengerich to Ladbergen. For the employees of the Claas dealer AGRAVIS Technik BvL GmbH it was a quantum leap. The 25 colleagues have been working at the new location since the beginning of September 2016. The Areal encompasses 15,000 square metres within direct proximity of the motorway, the B 475 and with Münster/Osnabrück airport on the doorstep.
150 guests at the handover of the keys
The Agco/Fendt dealer AGRAVIS Technik Lenne-Lippe GmbH invested right away in two locations. At the beginning of December 2016, the new 7,800 square-metre Melle branch opened with a reception and two shows. Around 150 guests had come to attend the symbolic handover of the key. Friedbert Vollmers, managing director of AGRAVIS Technik Lenne-Lippe GmbH, emphasised the appreciation the company holds for the Machinery division in his short opening speech: AGRAVIS is committed to agricultural machinery and supports investment such as this in larger and more modern locations. We will fill the location with life."
Melle is a "dual location"
Visitors flocked to the AGRAVIS Technik Lenne-Lippe GmbH site over the two show days. After over 30 years, AGRAVIS Technik left the industrial estate in Halle-Gartnisch in North Rhine-Westphalia and relocated 20 kilometres away to Lower Saxony. The company is now located right next to their AGRAVIS Technik Saltenbrock GmbH colleagues, who are distributing Claas. Melle is one of the "dual locations" of AGRAVIS Technik.
A regional presence
In the spring of 2017, AGRAVIS Technik Lenne-Lippe GmbH will also be leasing a newly built location of Raiffeisen Lippe-Weser AG in Brakel. Boasting around 22,000 square meters, this location is also set up for growth. AGRAVIS Technik Münsterland Ems GmbH launched its new Agco/Fendt location in Fürstenau in 2017. On January 2, the doors were opened to customers. The site in Fürstenau boasts 4,000 square metres. Nine colleagues work at the Fürstenau location in total. The two managing directors of AGRAVIS Münsterland-Ems GmbH, Heinz-Georg Mors and Stefan Ester, explain: "The AGRAVIS Machinery group is now strongly represented in the region with its Fürstenau, Bersenbrück, Hörstel and Meppen locations. We want to have a regional presence."
