As of October 14, Fendt’s new loader wagon production facility in Wolfenbüttel, Germany, officially opened – following more than €20 million of investment. On October 15, the site opened its doors to Wolfenbüttel locals who were able to tour the new factory and see the loader wagons and round balers assembly for themselves.
A highlight of the opening was the handover of the first Fendt Tigo wagon manufactured in Wolfenbüttel, to a Dutch farmer.
“Derived from their history, our loader wagons already have an excellent reputation among customers as a premium product. This is exactly what we want to continue and expand,” said Christoph Gröblinghoff, chairman of the Fendt management board.
“For Fendt, the loader wagon is a key machine for the Fendt Full Line product range. Precisely because the market for loader wagons is manageable worldwide, we want to and must build the best loader wagons for our customers.
“With the expansion of the Wolfenbüttel site, we are investing both in a state-of-the-art development location for engineers and in a modern production location to ensure quality in development and production,” Mr Gröblinghoff concluded.
