Assembly Operations Expand for AGCO

December 1, 2008 10:42 AM

In an effort to streamline logistics for their dealer network, AGCO Corporation has built and opened three new tractor assembly centers in the United States. These centers are located near major ports, and close to markets with high demand for tractors manufactured and marketed by AGCO.

The three new assembly centers, located near Baltimore, MD; Houston, TX; and Tacoma, WA, are completed and currently taking tractor and parts inventory from AGCO manufacturing facilities around the world for the AGCO, Challenger, Fendt, Massey Ferguson and Valtra brands.

Employees will assemble the tractors; and customize them to the market by installing attachments such as loaders and backhoes, three-point hitches, tires and wheels and additional North American content as requested by dealers and customers.

The AGCO Corporation assembly centers are standardizing quality control of each piece of equipment sold in North America by running them through consistent quality checks and audits at each facility.

"These three new facilities are state of the art, applying all of the latest technologies," says Bill Kaltenberg, Director of Operations. "And they are also available for regional traning meetings and product launches with dealer; helping us to make it more convenient for them to see out new products."
