The expansion doesn’t end in Jackson, Minnesota for AGCO. In fact, last month AGCO announced that the Board of Directors recently approved an expansion of capacity for the Research and Development Center at the Marktoberdorf, Germany Fendt operations.
This involves erecting a new multi-story building on the grounds of the Research and Development Centre. An investment of approximately 2.6 million euros will create some 120 new jobs for engineers and electronic technicians, which will be filled through new hiring over the next two years. Then a total of approximately 400 employees will be working on new developments and advancements in tractors and forage harvesters at the Fendt Research and Development Centre.
Peter Paffen, Vice President and Spokesman for the AGCO/Fendt Management stated “the expansion of the development centre at the AGCO Marktoberdorf location allows us to take important future projects forward faster and better, so that we can maintain our reputation on the market as the trendsetter and leader in innovations. Our special focus lies on electronics, which will allow us to push forward with systems and automation.”
