80 years ago the father of today's owner Mr. Franz Grimme developed the first potato harvesters. That was the beginning of GRIMME Landmaschinenfabrik in Damme. Over the years, the company expanded into a complete supplier for potato, beet and vegetable technology. The well-known red machines work in over 120 countries worldwide. Own sales and service agencies in Belgium, China, Denmark, France, Great Britain, Ireland, the Netherlands, Poland, Russia,Turkey and U.S.A. look after the customers in these countries.
The GRIMME machines are produced at two high modern manufacturing locations. All machines except self-propelled harvesters build in the headquarters in Damme (plant 1). Self-propelled harvester production takes place in the Industrial Area 'Niedersachsenpark", 12 km away from Damme. In 2012 Grimme build a production hall for web production and one for self-propelled harvesters (plant 2) on a 24 hectares large area.
Also located at the headquarters is the metal sheet processing (laser cutting and bending), shaft production, painting as well as the pre-assembling and final assembling. The ultramodern logistic centre is based on a fully automated high-bay warehouse-system, which supplies the assembly with all the required parts "just-in-time". On an area of 15 ha there is also a research and development department, the enterprise administration and an own training centre located.In 2000 Grimme built up an exhibition center for presentation and training of machines, called Technicom.
Over 1,350 employees (permanent workforce) work in plant 1 and 2. The company trains over 124 young people in various technical and commercial professions.
