MARKTOBERDORF, Germany (Dec. 18, 2015) — Farm equipment maker AGCO Corp. has named Mitas a.s. its Supplier of the Year 2015 in the category Engineering & Innovation, in large part due to its development of the AirCell inflation system, which is part of the Fendt VarioGrip Pro system.
“Mitas' close collaboration with AGCO is long-lasting, and our relations are outstanding,” said Jens Steinhardt, Mitas' key account manager.
“In particular, the cooperation with Fendt on the AirCell project, which is part of the VarioGrip Pro, was highly intensive and successful.”
This is the third award for the AirCell project, Mr. Steinhardt said. It earlier earned the Agritechnica Gold Medal and the Machine of the Year 2016 prizes.
