Lemken celebrates 50 years

Lemken celebrates 50 years

Next year Lemken will be celebrating 50 years of operating in the UK and to mark the occasion will have a golden plough on display at LAMMA along with a range of new machines for 2010. Every customer taking delivery of a new piece of Lemken kit next year will also receive a branded waistcoat. Colchester Tractors which later became Colchester Tillage first imported Lemken machines to the UK in 1960 before a subsidiary was established in Norfolk in 1993. While ploughs have been both an important product in the UK offering and for the 200 year old German manufacturer, which produced its first in 1804 – ploughs now represent just 25% of UK turnover. Lemken has been making power harrows since 1989 and after purchasing Hassia in 1996 added drills to its range. More recently two sprayer manufacturers were bought in 2005 adding to the product line-up. From its three factories in Germany, Lemken now produces up to 15,000 implements annually.
