AMAZONE Ltd. – new friends in Britain
The Amazone family has made a lot of new friends in Britain. The fact that the "Amazones" last for years and also sell well as used machines has been widely recognised as a quality feature in Britain for many years now. Visible proof of this was our big family event at the opening of our new subsidiary near Doncaster/Great Britain on 22nd May, which was attended by around 500 guests.
Our sales subsidiary in Great Britain with the name "AMAZONE Ltd." has been in existence since 1982. AMAZONE Ltd. relocated a short time ago on account of the high demand and expansion. Now there is a new site: After the premises in Harworth, near Doncaster became too small, we bought Orchard Farm, a holding not too far away with about 12 hectares of land, two years ago and built a spacious new facility. Our complete product range (AMATECHNICA) was officially on show at the opening celebrations. The Amazone machines impressed all the visitors with their excellent technology and performance.
Our general manager, Mr Simon Brown, an "institution" who has worked for our Ltd. from the very beginning, had organised a varied programme of events including trial plots, practical field demonstrations into the negative effects of tyre pressures and better fertiliser application. Inside was a full session of seminars from the wider agricultural industry. A fly past of 50 years of AMAZONE sprayers finished off the day. Friends of the company, farmers and our dealers were among the invited guests. The two managing directors, Dr. Justus Dreyer and Christian Dreyer, who was accompanied by his wife, Bettina, as well as the general sales manager, Mr Hemeyer, travelled from our main factory in Gaste. The guests were spoiled with delicious food and drink in wonderful weather.
Everybody at the big family event went home with the feeling that Amazone will continue to be a strong, reliable and growing partner in Great Britain in the future.
