AGCO Brings Back Furloughed Hesston Workers

AGCO’s critical upgrades to its Hesston facility went live on Jan. 1, 2024, and the company brought back the first group of employees returning from furlough in the first week of January. An additional wave of employees returned the following week, and the balance of employees will return in waves over the course of the first quarter as production ramps up with the new systems.

In October 2023, AGCO temporarily furloughed up to 900 employees to “upgrade critical systems” at the company’s Hesston, KS plant.
