Schumacher invests in USA
New production and office facilities
Schumacher Company LC invests in a new building on its location in Durant, Iowa, USA. A ground-breaking ceremony was held on Sept. 22. 2016 to kick-start the building. For Schumacher LC, Selina Schumacher, General Manager, Max Droste, Chief Operation Officer, and Jens Barkmann, Sales Manager, did the first cut with their spades. They also thanked Durant Mayor Scott Spengler, members of Durant City council as well as members of the planning and zoning comittee.
With the investment Schumacher LC implements its strategy to modernize and expand its capacities for the Northamerican market. Even though AG Technology faces strong ups and downs during the last years, the overall perspective of the agricultural sector is positive, states Selina Schumacher. “On a long term we strive to implement our growth strategy by using the potential of our products, people and the chances we see in being a partner for all those involved in harvesting. The new building here in Durant makes us even more flexible in production and quality management.”
In 1994 Schumacher opened its business in Durant, Iowa, an ideal location in a rural environment close to the agricultural production and farmers needs. Today, Schumacher LC manufactures and assembles all Schumacher products that are marketed in North America and develops all sales strategies for the US, Canada and Mexico. Currently, GROUP SCHUMACHER is investing in a new factory and
office building, in modern production lines and in the training and further training of our employees.
