‘There are no boundaries for us where growth is concerned’

After two relatively fast takeovers in quick succession namely Underhaug (planting machinery) in April 2013 and Climax (storage machinery) in January 2013, AVR, who manufactures lifters and rotary cultivators in Roeselare, Belgium, almost instantly became a full liner in the world of important machinery for the cultivation of potatoes.

After two relatively fast takeovers in quick succession namely Underhaug (planting machinery) in April 2013 and Climax (storage machinery) in January 2013, AVR, who manufactures lifters and rotary cultivators in Roeselare, Belgium, almost instantly became a full liner in the world of important machinery for the cultivation of potatoes. All of a sudden, manufacturer Grimme from the German town of Damme was no longer the only full liner in North-West Europe.
