Founded in 1828, the Kuhn brand has progressively become a leader in the agricultural machinery industry. Through aggressive growth and development, and an ever-renewed capacity for innovation, Kuhn continues to help drive the modernization of agriculture across the world.

Many major innovations have been developed within the Kuhn Group, and exclusive solutions have been launched in all product areas. Progressive advancements in hay, crop production, landscape and livestock equipment have helped producers maximize productivity and the return on their investment. The company has filed more than 2,000 international patents over the years.

Kuhn recently introduced two machines—the MM 1100 Merge Maxx hay merger and Interceptor 8050 high-speed tillage system—that have been recognized as AE50 award winners. The AE50 recognition means both machines were deemed among the year’s most innovative designs in agriculture.

Kuhn continues to draw on its vast experience to prepare for the challenges ahead in the industry. The world of farming and the needs of producers are changing fast. The size of farms is growing, markets are globalizing, consumer demands are greater, and technology is always advancing.

“Today, more than ever, we believe in the future of agriculture and our industry,” says Kuhn Group CEO Thierry Krier. “Our 190 years of experience and commitment from our staff, combined with the performance of our distribution networks, ensures proximity to customers and enables us to look to the future with passion and confidence. We are obviously proud of this longevity, but above all we want to recognize the loyalty of our customers and partners around the world. Without them, none of it would be possible.”

The Kuhn Group is present in nearly 100 countries today, with over 5,000 employees and 11 production sites around the world. Kuhn North America, Inc., is headquartered in Brodhead, Wis. Kuhn, Kuhn Knight and Kuhn Krause products are sold by farm equipment dealers throughout the U.S., Canada and many other countries.
