A Long Respected Tradition
The history of Kverneland dates back to 1879 when the founder, Ole Gabriel Kverneland, built a forge to manufacture scythes, in the village of Kvernaland near Stavanger in Norway. Later O.G. Kverneland started production of small ploughs. Kverneland remained a family owned and managed business until the company was listed on the stock exchange in 1983.
Growth Through Acquisitions
Since the mid 1990s Kverneland Group has expanded considerably through acquisitions of a number of well-known manufacturers of agricultural implements.
