Krone Machines

(Press Release) Krone, a global manufacturer focused on innovative hay-and-forage farming equipment, announced today it will relocate its North American corporate headquarters from Memphis, Tennessee, to Shelbyville, Indiana. The move is part of a comprehensive strategic plan by Krone to grow its business in North America.

The 110-year-old company, which is privately held and owned by Germany-based Bernard Krone Holding GmbH & Co. KG, will invest $12.5 million to construct a 200,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility. In addition to the corporate headquarters, the complex, located on 40 acres in central Indiana, will also feature a distribution center, showroom, and training facility. The transition will take place over the next three years, while Krone continues to prioritize exceptional customer service for its dealers.

Krone is expanding its line of forage harvesters to include four new models of the BiG X. The BiG X 480, 530, 580 and 630 round out the range of the BiG X line with 489, 523, 585 and 617 horsepower, respectively.

“The new BiG X models were tested extensively in North America,” said Jim Mandes, northern region sales manager. “Capitalizing on the reputation of the BiG X 700, 850 and 1100, these machines will allow Krone to offer machines to operations that have lower horsepower requirements and provide the same exceptional forage quality, reliability and production.”
