AGCO holds its 2021 EME Virtual Supplier Day and Honors New Partner-level Suppliers & Award Winners

'Thanks to your relentless efforts and support, we were not only able to restart earlier and ramp-up faster than many others, but even to catch-up much of the lost production,' said Konstantin Meier-Kulenkampff, Vice President Purchasing & Materials, EME.

'Agricultural machinery is one of the best industries to supply to at the moment, and AGCO is a market leader in the tractor sector, with further growth of market share', added Torsten Dehner, Senior Vice President & General Manager, EME. Mr. Dehner explained: 'The COVID-19 pandemic continues to require our tireless, full attention, and given AGCO's customers demand, we are counting on our supply base to provide our customers with the machines they are waiting for.'

Johann Nuscheler, a farmer from Bavaria and Fendt customer who runs a 3,000 hectare farm operation in Eastern Germany, said: 'We expect reliable and affordable machinery. Purchase price is always a discussion. We want a much more modular system to create our tractor. Fendt has the best technology, but we don't need it in every tractor.' Mr. Nuscheler added: 'We expect AGCO to spearhead breakthrough technologies, such as autonomous driving and swarm technology.'
