AGCO opened its expanded manufacturing facility and Intivity Center in June with a two-day Grand Opening celebration. Since that event, farmers from across the Midwest and around the globe have been touring AGCO’s 75,000-square-foot tractor manufacturing line and taking in the exhibits within Intivity Center, the company’s new 17,000-square-foot visitors’ center. More than 2,700 people have toured the Jackson, Minn., facility since it opened to the public.
“We built this new plant in Jackson because we wanted to give our dealers and their customers the opportunity to see our workmanship,” says Steve Koep, Vice President of Sales, AGCO North America. Koep goes on to say that this straight-line-configured manufacturing line, with its four quality-gate inspection points and high-tech automated quality-control systems, demonstrates to farmers the attention to detail that goes into every product. The line is spacious, and the progress of each tractor is visible on the overhead LCD monitors throughout the process. The assembly team members and customers can read on the screens what is being built, the stage of production it is in, and even for whom the Massey Ferguson or Challenger tractor is being built.
