ABOUT US |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.
AGCO delivers smart solutions. A farmer’s work is about productivity. At AGCO, we focus on efficiency across all of our brands in these key ways:
Uptime: Maximizing uptime is key to farmers’ productivity, from machinery to grain storage solutions to network hardware and software. AGCO technologies such as wireless connectivity and diagnostic services help you run a smarter, more profitable enterprise.
Machine Optimization: Automation is a big part of how AGCO delivers exceptional machine optimization. The AGCO automatic guidance system helps farmers do a better, more precise job by minimizing overlap and skip, and reducing time and fuel consumption.
Logistics Management: For big farms working with big data, AGCO logistics management analyzes machine data, including yields and financials, on the farm and in the field to deliver better service and maximize uptime.
Reduced Waste: AGCO is focused on improving farmer livelihood by delivering solutions that minimize waste while maximizing value.
AMPIP is all about increasing our customers’ satisfaction levels through adoption of processes and tools that reduce costs and time to market while similtaneously increasing reliability and quality of all AGCO product lines.
