CLAAS UK’s £1million development at Saxham was officially opened by Robert Everitt, the Mayor of St Edmundsbury.

The new centre will provide dedicated facilities to enable machinery to go through the initial stringent approval procedure, prior to being prepared and stored under cover for sale.

The development by the EDP Top100 company is the first stage in the further development of the CLAAS Used Approved scheme, which has now been expanded to cover all CLAAS self-propelled machines.

When the CLAAS Used Approved scheme was launched last year, it set a new standard within the agricultural industry for the approval and preparation of used tractors, the firm said.

The ceremony was attended by Thierry Panadero, the firm’s regional president for western Europe, and Jan-Hendrick Mohr, its global vice president for sales and service.
