AMAZONE TOO is growing in Kazakhstan
Company-owned premises in Kokschetau now in use
In 2010 the management of AMAZONEN-WERKE decided to establish a branch in Kazakhstan. With its 22 million ha of arable land, this country still offers huge potential for AMAZONE machinery today.
Dr. Tobias Meinel, formerly our product manager for large-area seeders, relocated to Astana with his family and raised awareness of the previously almost unknown AMAZONE brand with demonstrations, field trials and participation in field days and trade fairs.
A good dealer network is in place in the meantime, and both sales and the team are steadily growing. The Condor direct seeders are highly sought after owing to the very dry conditions in the country, but the Pantera self-propelled crop protection sprayer, the Catros compact disc harrow and the UX 11201 trailed sprayer are also becoming increasingly popular.
The positive development led to the decision to acquire a property in Kokshetau in the middle of Kazakhstan's most important agricultural region. This step was implemented in May 2022. AMAZONE TOO purchased an existing site with an office building, spare parts warehouse and machine storage. To the great delight of all AMAZONE employees in Kazakhstan, their new home was ready to move into at the end of June and is an investment in the further development of the location in this very promising Central Asian market.
