Nicola Lemken and Julien Burel have announced a commercial partnership between their companies just ahead of the Agritechnica 2019.
From this November, LEMKEN will expand its product portfolio and offer SULKY fertiliser spreaders in its own, blue design. The product range comprises three series with a total of five models, which LEMKEN retail partners will distribute in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Benelux countries, Ireland, the United Kingdom and Poland.
The three series Spica, Tauri and Polaris come with tank volumes from 900 to 4,000 litres and a broad range of control options, from a basic version through to 100% ISOBUS. The new fertiliser spreaders meet the most stringent requirements regarding precision of application and economy. Comfortable setting options guarantee that fertiliser is applied precisely and economically. The LEMKEN fertiliser spreaders are therefore high-quality products which optimally complement the company’s existing product portfolio in tillage, sowing and crop care.
LEMKEN and SULKY both aim for a strong partnership with numerous benefits. While LEMKEN is able to increase its market relevance significantly with this new product segment, SULKY achieves the reliable utilisation of its production facilities. These are important factors for both companies, if they are to remain strong and independent, while also delivering added value to specialist dealers and farmers.
SULKY is a family-owned business, as is LEMKEN, and shares the same values and goals. Both companies’ business focus lies on developing innovative technology which is strongly aligned with farmers’ current needs. Nicola Lemken commented: “We are very happy about this cooperation, and we are convinced that it will allow us to support our customers even better. Optimally harmonised processes, from stubble cultivation through to fertilisation, produce clear economic and agricultural benefits to farmers. Moreover, farmers can rely on LEMKEN’s comprehensive, outstanding service at all times.”
