The month of February has been very eventful for our American & export team, with two of the biggest national farming equipment shows happening almost simultaneously. For the first time since we opened Arcusin Corp. in 2019, our General Director, Josep Ramon, along with 3 other members of the Commercial & Operations team, flew to the US to attend the two events and learn more about this incredible market.
As a family-owned business, it is in our DNA to build tight relationships with our clients, who we consider part of our bale handling family. That’s why when we sell a machine, we always go to our customer’s location to do the initial start-up and spend a full day with them showing how to operate the machine in their fields.
Our customers talked, and we listened! Last year, our team in the USA worked closely with Steffen Systems to design and manufacture Arcusin’s own custom line of heavy-duty bale handlers. After testing a few prototypes in summer of 2020, the GrabPack was born.
You don’t need big machines for moving large quantities of product. A sufficient mixture of experience, engineering and perseverance can achieve an excellent solution, capable of providing high working efficiency in a way that is both comfortable and pleasant for the machine operator, and this solution is called Multipack D14.
It was 25 years ago that Manuel Cusiné, President of Arcusin and with more than 50 years’ experience in handling small bales, invented the first MultiPack model.
On the occasion of the Farm Science Review, Agricultural Fair of Ohio in which Arcusin was present with its own stand, a commercial team moved to the other side of the pond to support our dealer in the area. This exhibition, a reference in the North-East of the United States, took place in mid-September and we exposed the small bales bundling machine MultiPack C14.
After the successful demonstration route in France with the ForStack bale accumulator during the 2017 campaign, this year we decided to repeat the experience and even extend it. It was decided to visit, in addition to numerous French customers, a representation of German farmers, all of them in their own fields at the time of bale harvesting.
ARCUSIN, company dedicated to the manufacture of agricultural machinery and present in more than 50 countries, saw this as an opportunity to unify free trade within the EU and showed great interest in it from the first day.
The event with most impact on the Spanish agricultural sector has ended: Fima 2018. All the main manufacturers of agricultural machinery meet every two years to bring color to this great show. Exhibitors fight to show the best advances in technology applied farming equipment, with a common goal: reduce costs and gain comfort.
ARCUSIN is to be congratulated for the determination and daily effort of our staff. The Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness has recently granted us as INNOVATIVE SME, official until December 2020.
