The GRIMME Group
The family company GRIMME was founded in 1861 as a forge in Damme (Germany) and employs more than 2700 people worldwide. GRIMME Landmaschinenfabrik has been manufacturing high-quality agricultural machinery for more than 80 years and is active in potato, beet and vegetable technology in over 120 countries around the world.
The GRIMME Group also includes the companies ASA-LIFT in Denmark, SPUDNIK in the USA, INTERNORM and RICON in Germany, as well as 10 international sales and service subsidiaries.
Since 2004 the in-house exhibition GRIMME Technica has taken place every two years at our headquarters in Damme (Germany). Due to the uncertain development of the Corona virus crisis and our responsibility to guarantee the greatest possible safety to our visitors and staff, GRIMME Technica, which was planned for December 1-4, 2020, has been cancelled. “This decision was very difficult for us, as GRIMME Technica is one of our most important shows. But with the level of great uncertainty that currently prevails, we unfortunately had no other choice”, says Christoph Grimme, Managing Director of the GRIMME Landmaschinenfabrik. All shows and events of the entire GRIMME Group have been cancelled worldwide until December 31, 2020. This also includes Potato Europe in Villers/St. Christophe (France) as well as the Beet Europe in Seligenstadt (Germany).
Shows and events are extremely important marketing tools for existing customer relationships and new customer acquisition. Therefore, alternatives and new concepts will be developed in order to stay in contact with customers and to offer the greatest possible transparency of information.
In the seven factories of the GRIMME Group in Germany, Denmark, China and the USA manufacturing is still going on. Due to the high quality of manufacturing and the ultra-modern production processes, it was possible to overcome any bottlenecks in the supply chain with individual parts from external sources. Thanks to the introduction of strict hygiene rules and new working processes, all plants worldwide are able to continue their operations in manufacturing.
The spare parts supply is ensured and could be extended by an on-line shop in cooperation with the GRIMME Premium Partners. Shipping of the machines and service are also guaranteed.
