During the convention, Kverneland Group emphasized the long established history in the French market with its Kverneland and Vicon product offering, and since 2013 extended with the Kubota implements range. ‘’This strong investment in the French market emphasises our commitment to grow the business and to our partnership with our dealers and farmers in France’’; stated Arild Gjerde, Executive Vice President Sales and Marketing.

The new facilities in Marigny-les-Usages covers 7.2 hectares and is located 7 km from the former location in Saint-Jean-de-Braye.

Franck Adam, Managing Director of Kverneland Group France: “After 33 years on the old site, it was time to invest in new facilities to support our growth. We wanted a modern, practical and well-organized site with sufficient training capacity including direct access to the field area. With 4 hectare and test track for field spraying equipment, we can now combine theory and practice during the training.

With reference to our sustainable development commitment and the respect for the environment, and for ensuring the comfort of employees, this new building is certified by the BREEAM * label.
