One of the newest options for UK farmers selecting cultivation machinery is Bednar, displayed at several dealer open days and demonstrations during 2013, but which made its official debut at Cereals 2014 following a formal importation agreement with Knight Farm Machinery. David Williams was invited to visit the Czech business to see what is behind its recent successes.
The company recently had its SWIFTERDISC XE 10000 10 metre disc cultivator out on display at its Australian distributor FarmTech’s stand at the field days.
BEDNAR FMT, Czech manufacturer of agricultural machines for soil tillage, sowing, fertilization and mulching, confirmed yet again that it deservedly ranks among the best manufacturers in its category and that it keeps strengthening its position also in the biggest world markets. BEDNAR raised turnover for 28% in comparison with 2013. The key markets remained to be the Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia, Russia, Romania, as well as Germany where a subsidiary company - BEDNAR GmbH - was established during 2014.
Bednar is a regular exhibitor at the most important Danish show, Agromek , which is traditionally held in Herning at the end of November. Agromek is a popular exhibition which is visited by farmers from all over Scandinavia, and therefore for BEDNAR participation is very important.
BEDNAR has become one of the most important suppliers of profesional farming machines and technologies in the Russian market during the last few years. Even if the crisis in this region has slowed down the market we are still well established and heading in the right direction. The Moscow show attracted many farmers to come along and see the new trends in agriculture.
On the stand on the exhibition in Biddinghuizen, Holland last September was exposed The Terraland TN 3000 M 5 R from Bednar Farm Machinery.
BEDNAR FMT is very pleased to announce new territorial manager for Poland. Mikolaj Kubik has joined the team on 10th of November and will be responsible for sales, product support and communication with dealers in Poland. Mikolaj Kubik has been involved in agriculture for all of his life and he has more than 10 years of experience with sales of soil processing machines. BEDNAR FMT has become one of the key players in the market. They recorded record sales in the first ten months of 2014.
Bednar's importer in Estonia Stokker Agri has recently delivered new John Deere 8295R tractor to big potato, wheat, rape seed farm. We dropped in to discuss a cultivation tool to load the new workhorse properly. As everybody knows best selling tool of tillage machinery is in field demonstration. Fortunately farmers old disc cultivator was preparing seedbed and his neighbours SwifterDisc XE 10000 was doing the same nearby. So we called the big yellow machine to the farmer's field. Watch it yourself!
