Sebastian Straßburger became part of the extended AMAZONE family in 2011. He started his career in international sales promotion for the soil tillage sector and travelled throughout the world for us. He gained valuable experience from demonstrations and training with our importers and customers on his travels. He then followed in the footsteps of our long-time employee Hans-Rudolf Höner as representative for the Westphalia region at the end of 2017.

Westphalia and agriculture have always been his home and his close ties and interest in agricultural machinery have been strengthened over the years. He spent a lot of time on his uncle's farm even as a child, and he also supported well-known farms in the vicinity wherever he could during his school days and studies. Farming was always a part of his everyday life. It was therefore no surprise that he finally opted for a course of studies in agricultural sciences at the University of Applied Sciences in Soest, which he successfully completed in 2011 with a master’s degree.

Mr Straßburger is married, the father of two children and lives with his family in the district of Soest on a farm which he runs as a sideline.
