MacDon Industries Ltd. is pleased to announce the official opening of MacDon Europe GmbH. based in Germany. The opening of MacDon Europe provides a platform to support our dealers and customers with more tools and will enable the growth of MacDon across Europe.

MacDon is a world leader in the manufacturing of self-propelled auger, disc and draper windrowers, pull-type disc mowers, as well as pick-up headers, rigid draper and FlexDraper® headers that fit most current model large combine brands.

As a renowned specialist for rigid draper and FlexDraper® headers, MacDon develops, builds and sells high-performance harvesting technology that has been designed for high-yielding conditions in European crops.

“We increasingly notice that weather conditions make harvest windows less stable in Europe. As a consequence, the ability to harvest effectively and reliably becomes more and more important”, explains Benedikt von Riedesel. As General Manager of MacDon Europe, the 46-year-old von Riedesel is responsible for supporting and expanding distribution and service structures in Germany and Europe.

Looking for new partners

“MacDon’s decision to set up our own distribution structure is the logical solution to the noticeably growing demand in European markets”, explains von Riedesel who is well acquainted with the agricultural machinery business in Germany and Europe. Amongst others, Benedikt von Riedesel held various sales and marketing positions with several major international manufacturers of agricultural equipment.

During Agritechnica 2017, MacDon will be an exhibitor on Stand B43 in Hall 13. We will be looking forward to meeting dealers and customers who want to bring our brand and equipment to the forefront of European agriculture. Further appearances in Germany and other European countries are being planned for 2018.

MacDon, a family-owned company, has kept their values firmly intact for over 65 years while becoming a world-class equipment manufacturer. With a workforce of approximately 1,400, our products are sold in over 40 countries, with offices in Canada, the United States, Australia, Russia, Brazil and now Europe.
