The construction of AGCO’s Training Centre in Zambia at the AGCO Future Farm, was completed mid November 2015. The new training center is strategically located in the capital city Lusaka and is close to the International Airport, making it easily accessible for the whole East and Southern African region. “It is a milestone for AGCO to have the regional training center building completed,” explained Nuradin Osman, AGCO Director of Operations, Africa & Middle East, “Overall this is a huge achievement for the Africa Strategy. We set out to do something a little different in Africa and being able to have this infrastructure will help us build capacity of the highest global standards within the region, it is beyond amazing!
