In early December, the eighth time (since 2004) in Germany successfully hosted the "home" exhibition of GRIMME equipment, organized for partners and customers of the company.
More than 100 types of potato and vegetable equipment produced by GRIMME were presented to the attention of visitors, ASA-LIFT and SPUDNIK. For the first time, the new EVO 280 double-row combine harvester with an 8-ton bunker and three separating devices, as well as a new generation of self-propelled beet harvesters of the REXOR series, were demonstrated.
In addition, the company introduced two new portal modules for my GRIMME customers, which make it easy to identify parts and check their availability with selected distribution partners. On the eve of the opening of the exhibition, a special event was organized for national and international premium partners of GRIMME, dedicated to current trends in the field of trade in agricultural machinery.
During the meeting, the General Director of the GRIMME agricultural machinery plant Sebastian Talg also outlined the promising ways of the company's development. As Mr. Talg noted, the GRIMME brand is traditionally associated with potato and beetroot technology. With the acquisition of a Danish company ASA-LIFT the GRIMME group of companies plans to place greater emphasis on the production of vegetable technology. The purpose of the enterprise is to provide the consumer with a complete line of vegetable equipment and take a leading position in this market segment. Cleaning technology and storage equipment are already included in the production program.
Sowing equipment will be produced in cooperation with the English producer Stanhay. Starting in 2019, Stanhay's GRIMME seeders for vegetables will be introduced in Germany, Holland, the UK, Poland, Russia and China. The general director of the GRIMME agricultural machinery factory also drew the attention of the participants to the fact that 2019 is a jubilee year for the GRIMME brand. The brand’s first self-propelled potato harvester entered the market in 1969, 50 years ago. Since then more than 2 self-propelled harvesting combines left the GRIMME factory, this is a significant result for the industry, but new victories await the company ahead.
