The German-based agricultural equipment and technology manufacturer AGCO/Fendt suspended tractor production at its Marktoberdorf and Asbach-Bäumenheim manufacturing locations for seven working days from April 22, 2021 due to a failure of cast parts suppliers from an external provider.
The company reported that due to the ongoing corona pandemic, supply chains around the world are still tense. The third wave of the pandemic has affected production at farm machinery industry locations across many brands in Europe.
Fendt has reported that inconsistent material inflows have regularly limited the production capacities of many tractor manufacturers, such as AGCO/Fendt. Due to the complete production downtime of an important German cast parts supplier, the Fendt tractor factories have had to temporarily suspend production for one week from April 22 to 30.
