Agritechnica Welcome to Agritechnica

At the STARCO stand, visitors met a group of experts presenting in-house developed and manufactured products and were ready to discuss how the wheel and tyre solutions could improve the performance of different applications. For instance, the old-time favourite STARCO Alptrak and newer STARCO HS Flotation. Visitors could also try STARCO’s unique clamp system for easy and safe mounting of duals.

During the recent years, STARCO has experienced growth within the agricultural industry, and the company anticipates further growth in the coming years and used Agritechnica as another opportunity to take further steps forward.

“We look forward to seeing our agricultural implement-customers, who are operating within green harvesting, soil preparation and agricultural loaders,” explains Andreas Thorborg, Senior Sales Manager in STARCO.

For the agricultural tractors, STARCO has been predicting growth in the dual wheel solutions and made-to-measure wheels segment.  

“We are working on improving our entire setup for dual wheel solutions. Everything from development, manufacturing, testing, packaging and distribution,” says Axel Werner, Segment Director for Tractors and National Distributors in STARCO. He continues: “We experience increased interest from the market leading tractor manufacturers and like our customer Valtra, most of them are interested in making the dual solution available on new tractors.” 

Additionally, STARCO updated their dual wheel solutions to fit the new Fendt 900-series and CLAAS AXION 900 high-performance tractors with the solution tailored to fit seamlessly with the TW Profi-Grip 42’’ and 44” rims, designed for high power tractors.
