New CLAAS Team in Bangkok
Harsewinkel/Bangkok. CLAAS continues to expand its Asian business: the CLAAS Regional Center South East Asia was founded in the Thai capital of Bangkok. From here, the South-East Asian team supports dealers throughout the region with the focus initially being on Thailand. Covering a geographical area the size of France, Thailand is by far the most important market in the region and is serviced by the new CLAAS importer, ASIA Co. Ltd. Nation-wide sales, service and parts supply are ensured by 30 dealers located throughout the country. An agreement was recently signed between ASIA Co. Ltd and CLAAS, and the first TALOS tractors have already begun to arrive in Bangkok.

The CLAAS range of products for South-East Asia also includes CROP TIGER combine harvesters and MARKANT balers. These machines are particularly well suited to the local crop conditions. "Tests conducted throughout Thailand have shown that the CROP TIGER is ideally suited to the very wet Thai rice fields," reported CLAAS service engineer Victor Knaus.

Thailand is an important rice growing country and is, among other things, the world's biggest rice exporter. On average, 31.5 million tons of rice is produced every year. 80-90 % of this is harvested mechanically – particularly in Central Thailand, where more than 2.5 harvests are possible in a year. "The Thai market offers great potential for CLAAS machines", said Jan-Klaus Tobias, Leader of the CLAAS Team in Bangkok. Thailand and other South-east Asian countries are currently experiencing rapid population growth and rising prosperity. Both of these factors combined have resulted in increased demand for food, and therefore for heavier machinery in the farming sector.
