LEMKEN celebrates its 240th anniversary

LEMKEN 1 KoralinLEMKEN, one of the leading suppliers of professional crop production technology, celebrates its 240th anniversary with many events for its employees, sales partners and customers

Nicola Lemken, now the seventh-generation manager of the family business, said, “We stand for efficient, sustainable agriculture and, together with our sales partners, we enable dependable, safe and efficient work processes for farmers and contractors all over the world in a wide range of applications and for highly diverse approaches to crop production. Our customers can always rely 100% on exceptional implement technology and comprehensive service. To deliver on this promise, we work closely with specialist dealers and our highly qualified service team.”

LEMKEN, an agricultural technology specialist, focuses its product range on tillage, sowing and crop care. Earlier this year, the company realigned its crop care segment and is now fully focused on its strengths in camera-controlled hoeing technology and the selective use of crop care products.

Anthony van der Ley, managing director, stated, “The LEMKEN brand enjoys an excellent reputation far beyond our home market in Germany. Our goal is to lead this family business successfully into the next generation by offering innovations that benefit our customers optimally.”

Responsible use of resources has played a vital role at the production sites of LEMKEN for over 15 years. The company’s power plant in Alpen is carbon-neutral in its electricity consumption, thanks to on-site combined heat and power plants and extensive, smartly controlled energy cycles between management and production facilities.

In addition, the profile of LEMKEN includes a corporate culture that is deeply appreciated by employees. The company values long-standing experience and the sound development of its staff very highly. It is therefore only appropriate for LEMKEN to focus strongly on its employees while celebrating its 240th anniversary.

Employees’ reminiscences were therefore accompanied by highlights from the company’s history and information on current technological developments on the 240lemken.com website. The result is a fascinating web special on the company’s 240-year history, and customers are invited to contribute their ideas and stories.
