During 2019, a well-known manufacturer of vegetable harvesting equipment ASA-LIFT will switch to the production of cars in the GRIMME corporate color - red, with the logo adapted in accordance with the general corporate style.
This decision will further emphasize the membership of ASA-LIFT in the GRIMME Group of Companies.
As a reminder, the family business GRIMME took over the management of most of the Danish plant ASA-LIFT in 2013. Much has changed at the plant over the five years of cooperation. First of all, the products of the enterprise were constantly improved. Now the cars ASA-LIFT equipped with high-quality components from GRIMME subsidiaries - INTERNORM (production of polyurethane products) and RICON (production of screening and conveying equipment).
To increase production capacity, in April 2018, the ASA-LIFT factory commissioned a new 2200m production workshop, and installed new lasers for cutting sheet metal and pipes.
After the merger, the staff of the enterprise was increased by 30%, today 130 employees work there.
Sales of ASA-LIFT products, together with long-term partners of the plant, are carried out by all GRIMME sales and service subsidiaries, as well as individual premium partners.
For the first time, ASA-LIFT will present vehicles in a new color and with an adapted logo at the GRIMME Technica exhibition, which will be held from December 4 to 7, 2018 in Damme.

PERISHABLE PRODUCTS DO NOT RETURN
In the final third reading, the State Duma adopted amendments to the law on trade, which prohibit retailers from returning unsold products to suppliers if their shelf life is less than 30 days.
The law was introduced to the State Duma in January; in July, the bill was passed on first reading. The approved version of the law provided for a complete ban on the return of unsold food products. But retailers warned that a complete ban could lead to a shortage of certain types of goods due to the complexity of planning their sales volume.
As a result, a government amendment was introduced to the bill, which clarifies that food products whose shelf life does not exceed 30 days are not subject to return. The adopted law also prohibits the replacement of such goods with similar ones or the reimbursement of their value.
180 days after the adoption of the law, contracts between suppliers and retailers should be brought into line with it.
