Innovative agricultural technology has been coming from Feucht near Nuremberg since 1918. This is where quality, employee expertise and innovative strength always come first.

Tradition, innovation and passion.
That's the recipe for success for the green forage centre of excellence in Feucht, Franconia.


As the First World War drew to an end, the demand for agricultural equipment from the metalworking industry increased. In 1918, Josef Hackl and Albert Löffler took advantage of this moment to found the Bayerische Eggenfabrik AG in Feucht, near Nuremberg, southern Germany.

1932 saw the introduction of grass mowers, hay tedders, horse rakes and reaper-binders into the company portfolio. And when the first conditioner with tine rotor was awarded the bronze medal by the DLG, Germany found itself in the midst of an economic boom. That was in the year 1953 and farmers across Europe were already relying on the outstanding quality of the agricultural technology produced in Bavaria. In 1980, the decision was made to specialise in green forage harvesting – and with great success

A centre of excellence for green forage harvesting whose expertise and experience is second to none was thus established over the course of a century in Feucht near Nuremberg. With great passion, driven by a German entrepreneurial spirit and rooted in Bavarian tradition, the company continues its success story and will continue to serve the global market in future.
