AGCO has been awarded a contract to supply tractors to the Heilongjiang provincial government in China.
This programme is aimed at expanding agricultural technology and productivity in the local Chinese market.
The company will deliver more 300 Valtra T191h tractors to the province by the end of the year. Eric Raby, vice-president, sales and marketing for Eastern Europe and Asia, explained: “AGCO has been successful in this province with the Valtra brand of tractors and this addition to the current fleet of machines reinforces the progress AGCO is making in obtaining acceptance from farmers of the region.”
AGCO says it has been a market leader in China for imported tractors. Over the past decade it has assembled a local post-sales service team and spare parts stocks serving the needs of local end-users in various regions.
