LEMKEN Becomes U.S. Subsidiary

LEMKEN has become a full-fledged U.S. subsidiary. Curtis Schaben will lead the U.S. operation as its managing director, a role he assumed Aug. 1.

Among his first tasks: establishing a U.S. location.

Schaben grew up on a farm in western Iowa. He began his career by studying agricultural systems technology at Iowa State University, then worked in management positions at various well-known U.S. agricultural machinery manufacturers.

An announcement from the company said that with Schaben’s years of experience and in-depth knowledge of the market, he is “ideally placed to strengthen LEMKEN’s market position in the USA and further increase sales.”

Schaben will be supported by a team of seven employees and one agent.
