Operating Principles

High-quality, highly efficient products through high-quality, highly efficient people, systems and practices. That’s how we operate because it’s the best way to operate. Through our AGCO Production System (“APS”) initiative, a product development process we call AGCO Major Product Introduction Procedure (“AMPIP”) and our lean, sustainable working culture, AGCO is better able to deliver the products and services that matter most to today’s farms in a way that makes the most sense and provides the most opportunities for our future.
