CLAAS Announces Operation of Krasnodar Plant in Russia

CLAAS has announced the operation of an additional plant in Krasnodar, Russia. The company has invested around EUR 120 million in the project. The need to modernize and the demand for efficient harvesting technologies remain significant. Only 72 million hectares are currently used for agriculture in Russia, but a total of 122 million hectares are actually suitable for farming. The new plant is employing people from many different regions of Russia, some of whom have travelled more than 2,000 kilometers to take up a position at CLAAS in Krasnodar. Many of the occupations and technologies required by the plant didn't previously exist in the region and, in some cases, were very rare throughout the whole of Russia. Jobs in computer-controlled laser machining, which involves cutting metal parts with the utmost precision, or jobs in the automated painting facility are found nowhere else in the region. This technological specialization combined with a level of vertical integration comparable to that of the CLAAS parent plant in Harsewinkel will allow the facility to also supply products and services to companies from outside the sector in future. The production facility in Krasnodar is around nine times bigger than the previous factory with a surface area of around 45,000 square meters. Accordingly, the production volume of the plant will increase to up to 2,500 combine harvesters and tractors per year. Out of the eleven production plants operated by CLAAS, this plant is thus ranked in the top four by size. The new Krasnodar plant is currently the most modern production facility for agricultural machinery in Europe.
