Cimbria at centre of multi-million IT investment

(Posted on 07/12/21)

The international turnkey solution provider and manufacturer of custom-built solutions for agricultural and industrial processing, Cimbria, has announced it will be at the forefront of a major international IT project to increase efficiency and reduce complexity. The project will implement a state-of-the-art SAP-based ERP system across the organization to optimize business operations and will create about a dozen job opportunities.

“We are very excited to announce the launch of this important IT project. The project will modernize the way we work with a single ERP system across our business. It will help our teams work smarter, so they can make our customers’ jobs easier,” explains Vice President at AGCO Grain & Seed, EAME, Gary Rollinson.

Cimbria is part of AGCO, global leader in the design, manufacturing and distribution of agricultural machinery and precision ag technology. AGCO delivers value for its customers through leading brands like Challenger®, Fendt®, Massey Ferguson®, and Valtra®. In 2020 AGCO had 20,000 employees:

“We are proud to be implementing this vital ERP system for AGCO’s Grain & Protein business unit throughout the EAME region,” Rollinson continues. “We see the investment as a significant vote of confidence from our American AGCO owners. It shows Cimbria is an essential component in the growth of our business.”

Grain & Protein is a business unit within AGCO that includes leading brands such as AP®, Cimbria®, Cumberland®, GSI® and Tecno® to AGCO’s extensive business portfolio. The brands drive productivity for customers through smart and reliable grain and protein solutions to ensure food security, sustainability and animal welfare.

Cimbria has evolved over its 75 year history from its beginnings as a small family run machinery company to a worldwide turnkey and equipment solutions leader. Today, the company has offices in several locations around the world. As the brand continues to grow, as does its need to hire new employees:

“Our HR department is busy focusing on talent and competence development among our workforce, retention of current employees and recruitment of prospective employees. The ERP project alone provides more than a dozen new jobs, and we are constantly expanding our production, project house, and sales capabilities,” explains Stefan Koch, Senior HR Manager, AGCO Grain & Protein, EAME.
