PRAGUE-The manufacturer of agricultural machinery AGCO has signed a four-year agreement with Mitas to supply Continental- and Mitas-branded farm tyres to Fendt, Massey Ferguson, Valtra, Challenger and Laverda branded tractors and combines for their plants in Germany, Finland, France and Italy starting in 2013.
The contract extension follows a recent award made by AGCO to Mitas. AGCO awarded its highest supplier rating "A" to Mitas for deliveries of farm tyres from January to December 2012. The Mitas-produced Continental is a standard fitment in four out of six model series, for example, Fendt 924-930 Vario. The award pertains to quality, logistics, customer service and protection of the environment, for all of which Mitas received the highest grade. Mitas has received the overall "A" grade annually since 2004.
AGCO is a global leader focused on the design, manufacture and distribution of agricultural machinery.
