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.
