CLAAS KGaA mbH Key Developments

Liebherr-Werk Telfs GmbH and Claas Group Agree OEM Partnership

Liebherr-Werk Telfs GmbH has concluded an OEM partnership agreement with the Claas Group covering the development, production and delivery of substantial numbers of telescopic handlers. The first telescopic handlers will be supplied from series production in early 2018. By that time, the range of Liebherr telescopic handlers will have grown and will continue to be marketed by the Liebherr sales organisation. Claas will procure a selection of telescopic handler models with a modified design from Liebherr. The cooperation with Claas will enable Liebherr to generate additional future sales in the core target segment of construction engineering and industry with sales potential in the field of agriculture.

Kramer-Werke GmbH and the CLAAS Group to End Collaboration in Telescopic Handlers for the Agricultural Sector from 2018

Kramer-Werke GmbH and the CLAAS Group have reached a mutual agreement to terminate their strategic alliance in the area of agricultural telescopic handlers as of 2018. Customers are assured the long-term availability of services and spare parts even after the collaboration has ended. Kramer-Werke GmbH has been developing and manufacturing high-quality agricultural telescopic handlers for CLAAS at its site in Pfullendorf, Germany since 2005. CLAAS distributes the machines worldwide under the CLAAS SCORPION brand. The Wacker Neuson Group markets these telescopic handlers in the construction sector via its own sales organizations under the KRAMER and WACKER NEUSON brands. From 2018 on, the two partners will be operating independently in these telescopic handler markets. The strategic alliance will continue until this time. On termination of the alliance, the Wacker Neuson Group plans to continue to execute its successful sales strategies and does not expect any significant impact on Group revenue and earnings. The agricultural sector is already a key strategic market for the Wacker Neuson Group and will increase in importance. The Group already has a strong position in the agricultural wheel loader and telescopic handler segment through its WEIDEMANN brand, which has a long tradition in the sector. In future, the group aims to strengthen the WEIDEMANN brand by expanding the portfolio to include high-quality telescopic handlers with lifting heights of over 6 meters. This will also enable the KRAMER brand to offer its sales partners and customers an even more attractive and extensive range of wheel loaders and telescopic handlers under its green agricultural line.
