Cimbria is at the centre of a multi-million IT investment
The international turnkey solution provider and manufacturer of custom-built solutions for agricultural and industrial processing, Cimbria, has announced that it will be at the forefront of a major international IT project to increase efficiency and reduce complexity.
The project will implement a state-of-the-art SAP-based ERP system across the organisation to optimise business operations and will create about a dozen job opportunities.
'We are very excited to announce the launch of this important IT project. The project will modernise the way we work with a single ERP system across our business. It will help our teams work smarter, so they can make our customers' jobs easier' explains Vice President at AGCO Grain & Seed, EAME, Gary Rollinson.
Cimbria is part of AGCO, global leader in the design, manufacturing and distribution of agricultural machinery and precision ag technology. AGCO delivers value for its customers through leading brands like Challenger, Fendt, Massey Ferguson, and Valtra. In 2020 AGCO had 20,000 employees.
'We are proud to be implementing this vital ERP system for AGCO's Grain & Protein business unit throughout the EAME region, Rollinson continues. We see the investment as a significant vote of confidence from our American AGCO owners. It shows Cimbria is an essential component in the growth of our business,' said Mr Rollinson.
Grain and Protein is a business unit within AGCO that includes leading brands such as AP, Cimbria, Cumberland, GSI and Tecno to AGCO's extensive business portfolio. The brands drive productivity for customers through smart and reliable grain and protein solutions to ensure food security, sustainability and animal welfare.
A growing organisation equals increased global job opportunities
Cimbria has evolved over its 75 year history from its beginnings as a small family run machinery company to a worldwide turnkey and equipment solutions leader. Today, the company has offices in several locations around the world. As the brand continues to grow, as does its need to hire new employees.
'Our HR department is busy focusing on talent and competence development among our workforce, retention of current employees and recruitment of prospective employees. The ERP project alone provides more than a dozen new jobs, and we are constantly expanding our production, project house, and sales capabilities,' explains Stefan Koch, Senior HR Manager, AGCO Grain and Protein, EAME.
He adds that Cimbria offers various international career opportunities to prospective employees.
'The global operating company AGCO offers many exciting job opportunities across several countries and company divisions. These opportunities directly result from the Covid-19 pandemic, making us more aware that collaborating across countries is more manageable than we originally thought possible. It's now simply a matter of creating a decent work-life balance for both the employee and the company to ensure maximum productivity and efficiency, either through internal or external recruitment,' Mr Koch continues.
Mr Koch and his team have already recruited six employees for the IT project. They will soon draft a handful of specialists to ensure the project's development runs smoothly. The project has now launched at Cimbria's headquarters in Denmark, Thisted.
