AGCO Opens Assembly Centers
AGCO Corp. has built and now opened three state-of-the-art new assembly centers in the U.S.
The centers are part of an effort by AGCO to streamline logistics for its dealer network and to build on its commitment to quality. These centers are located near major ports, and close to markets with high demand for tractors manufactured and marketed by AGCO.
The three new assembly centers, located near Baltimore, MD; Houston, TX; and Tacoma, WA, are completed and currently taking tractor and parts inventory from AGCO manufacturing facilities around the world for the AGCO, Challenger, Fendt, Massey Ferguson, and Valtra brands.
“Our goal is to react to our dealers’ needs, and subsequently their customer needs on a timelier basis,” says Bill Kaltenberg, director of operations. “It also allows us the flexibility to make configuration changes to better serve our customers’ needs in a rapidly changing market. The centers provide facilities to customize tractors to the regional market and reduce the lead time on delivery to the customer.”
