Strong representation in the south-west
Amazone’s new base in Kottenheim, around 30 km west of Koblenz, comprises of a hall measuring 500 m2 for machinery and parts storage plus training rooms, presentation rooms and plenty of outdoor space to boot. The new subsidiary is integrated into the building of our main dealer Technik Center Alpen (TCA) and replaces the old site in Winningen. It enables us to significantly improve our reach to and service for our customers from the Cologne / Aachen area, Rhineland-Palatinate, the Saarland and southern Hesse. It also gives us the opportunity to showcase new technology and hold training courses. The new subsidiary means we’re much more strongly represented in this extremely important agricultural region than before.
One particular advantage of the new base is its central location, being very close to the A 61 and A 48 motorways. Udo Linck and Daniel Overhage – our factory sales representatives for this region – can now reach the Amazone base with their customers within an hour at most. In practice, this is convenience for the customer in absolutely every respect.
We welcomed over 250 invited guests – including many dealers, farmers and contractors – to the subsidiary’s opening ceremony on 25 October last year. We were also particularly pleased that representatives of Claas, the Board of Directors of AGRAVIS Schulte-Althoff, Dr. Schutte (CVG’s Head of Sales) and, naturally, our Managing Director Christian Dreyer, took part in the event. The many illustrious guests in attendance gave the opening of the new base the perfect glamorous setting.
