Agria is a leading manufacturer for landscape and garden technology with a high degree of brand awareness in its fields. The company Agria-Werke GmbH was founded in 1947 in the county Heilbronn, where the company's headquarters are. Agria is known for the manufacturing of its first product, the motorhoe. The gardening tool can be used for the loosening of the ground, preparation and the controlling of weeds.
The Agria-company was created in the post-war period by the manufacturers Mächtel and Göhler, his partner and technical director. In the beginning, the two of them had few skilled workers and the first products were can closure devices and poppy seed grinders. But the market changed and required agricultural equipment, especially for wine agriculture. Thus they brought their first product onto the market: the Agria-motorhoe. The device type motorhoe Agriette was popular in the 50s until the 60s. The production was successful and specialised itself for the agricultural and forestry market and produced more agria (motorised) utility vehicles and utility devices. Now agria can look back to over a million sold agria-machinery.
The facility produces agria machines and devices, such as rotary cultivators, compact tractors and cutter bars at various levels, in a highly modern building as well as in international production facilities (Spain, Italy and Greece). The machines from Agria have an engine performance of up to 22 HP. Agria owes its success not least because of its over 2000 employees.
Thanks to Agria there are environmentally friendly solutions for the tillage and care of green as well as circulation areas. The machines from Agria are especially suitable for the care of (garden) areas, facilities, floor areas and properties in the municipal and private sector.
