Locations

When it comes to customers, CLAAS is never far away – we are represented in many countries around the world, with our production facilities for our wide range of products and representative offices for sales and other services.

CLAAS in China

In China, CLAAS is represented with two main sides. A Chinese subsidiary of CLAAS was founded in Beijing in 2012. The CLAAS Agricultural Machinery Trading (Beijing) Co. Ltd helps our sales partners in China to sell CLAAS products, supply spare parts, service machinery and provide customer training.

CLAAS Agricultural Machinery (Shandong) Co. Ltd. started as a joint venture under the name of CLAAS Jinyee, founded in 2014 in Gaomi, province of Shandong. This joint venture was a perfect combination of international market-leadership by CLAAS with local market knowledge of Jinyee to make greater contribution to the development of China’s agricultural machinery industry.

Since January 2017, CLAAS Shandong is fully integrated into the CLAAS group, thus being able to even better combine the expertise of CLAAS production management with the proximity to our local customers.

Our ambition is to satisfy our customers with technology, quality, performance and service - all adapted to the specific needs of our Chinese customers. To achieve this, the company covers the whole value chain of a product. Ambitious teams in R&D, engineering, production, sales and marketing, service and parts with more than 1,000 employees work together to develop our products.
