Claas Hessen GmbH becomes AGRAVIS Technik Hessen-Pfalz GmbH
Investments for the benefit of customers
Since October 1, the former Claas Hessen GmbH has operated under the name AGRAVIS Technik Hessen-Pfalz GmbH and its official name has been AGRAVIS Raiffeisen AG. Trading as AGRAVIS Technik Hessen-Pfalz GmbH, it is clearly positioned as part of AGRAVIS Raiffeisen AG in its area of operation in the regions of Kurhessen and Rheinhessen-Pfalz which extends over a distance of more than 300 km.
The Claas product range complements AGRAVIS Technik Hessen-Pfalz GmbH at its four locations in Hesse and in the Palatinate region as well as at the seven partner companies associated with AGRAVIS Technik Hessen-Pfalz GmbH by adding the product lines of Väderstad, Horsch, Maschio, Rabe, Kotte or Trioliet, among others. “Rheinhessen-Pfalz is mainly a vegetable, viticulture, fruit and arable farming region. Besides other services, AGRAVIS Technik Hessen-Pfalz GmbH’s Claas branches therefore offer specialist services geared towards these sectors and a specially fine-tuned product range,” explains Stefan Kremper, Managing Director of AGRAVIS Technik Hessen-Pfalz GmbH.
In April, the company opened a new sales and service centre in Bobenheim-Roxheim south of Worms. And the next change is imminent. We will be opening a new site in November in Freigericht. “We are leaving Gelnhausen and moving to a new larger site five kilometres away. Just one example: in Freigericht, the workshop alone will cover a surface area of 600 m². In Gelnhausen, colleagues had to make do with just 280 m² of floor space,” explains Kremper.
Growth opportunities through cooperation
In autumn 2016, AGRAVIS and Claas Vertriebsgesellschaft mbH Germany intensified their cooperation. AGRAVIS took over Claas Hessen GmbH and also acquired Claas’s exclusive distribution rights for the Rheinhessen-Pfalz region as part of this takeover. "As part of our strategic orientation, we see further opportunities for growth through cooperation in the Rheinhessen-Pfalz region,” says Gerd Schulz, Managing Director of AGRAVIS Technik Holding GmbH.
