Massey Ferguson produced the 1,000,000th tractor in its factory in Beauvais, France. Another significant milestone as the brand is celebrating 175 years of history. The brand has been manufacturing tractors in Beauvais since November, 20th 1960.
At an event to mark this milestone, Thierry Lhotte, Vice-President & Managing Director Massey Ferguson EAME & President of AGCO in France underlined: “Our Beauvais Massey Ferguson Global Home has grown continuously over the past 62 years, working with and for farmers. On behalf of all our employees I want to thank our customers for their everlasting trust. We are particularly proud to have them represented by the owner of this brand-new MF 8S.305 Dyna-VT, the 1,000,000th tractor produced in Beauvais, Mr Thierry Aubrée, arable farmer and contractor, in the village of La Chapelle des Fougeretz in Brittany, France and his local Dealer Hervé Motoculture”
Mr Aubrée explained why he chose MF as his new tractor : “I’m passionate about new technologies including RTK guidance, section control with a focus on soil preservation and sustainable farming practices. The MF 8S exudes this modernity thanks to its efficient engine, smooth transmission, perfect wheelbase and offers visibility, cab comfort and precision farming connectivity capabilities. Operating my entire MF fleet of 4 tractors, 3 combines, 2 big balers and 1 telehandler, I found a great win-win partnership with my MF dealer based on common trust.”
“With my team, we feel lucky to represent the entire MF dealer network handing over to Mr. Aubrée THE 1,000,000th tractor from the Beauvais Factory. This is a once in a lifetime moment as there is only one 1,000,000th tractor from Beauvais and we wish long and productive hours of work to Mr Aubrée.”, said Jérome Mazière, Managing Director Hervé Motoculture, the Massey Ferguson dealership serving areas in Côtes d’Armor and Ille-et-Villaine in the region of Brittany, France. “We are proud of this 40 year partnership with Massey Ferguson and grateful of the welcome our customer received as well as the opportunity we had to see how the Beauvais site continues to deploy its new activities at an impressive pace despite the past 2 challenging years. This will support our farmer’s needs.”, added Jérôme Mazière.
