Embarking on the future together

ASH Group and CLAAS present product range at Münster-Osnabrück Airport

The CLAAS distribution company in Germany has reorganized its working relationship with AGRAVIS Technik in Westphalia and in the western part of Lower Saxony. The opportunity was taken to present the ASH Group’s range of tractors and exclusively its range of equipment to the Agravis dealers in a symposium held at Münster-Osnabrück Airport.

At four different stations, technical specialities, unique selling points and applications for the equipment were explained to the more than 80 people attending the symposium. In addition to the range of tractors, the focus was also on the currently expanding municipal market for Claas / Agravis and software solutions such as GPS Pilot, Autofill and Claas Telematics.

Münster-Osnabrück Airport also took advantage of the opportunity to demonstrate its qualities as a venue for symposia and as an airport. During a detailed guided tour, the visitors were given the opportunity to see the operational procedures such as the fire service, baggage handling and customs clearing for themselves – there was a particular focus on the winter maintenance service, which at Münster-Osnabrück Airport is delivered primarily by three Schmidt TJS (towed jet sweepers), with a Tarron MS 72 snow plough, three Schmidt CJS and two ASP 24 sprayers.

In addition, Claas tractors from the Arion 550 series with a Schmidt CP 3 snow plough and Traxos spreader and the Claas Xerion 4000 series with a Schmidt FS 110 attachable snow cutter blower were presented on the airport apron. They also ensured that there was a clear runway for German President Joachim Gauck, who arrived at and departed from Münster-Osnabrück Airport when he paid a visit to the company Krone in the district of Emsland. Germany’s equivalent of “Air Force One” was parked right next to the sweepers from Schmidt. With light snow beginning to fall shortly before he was due to depart, German President Gauck was able to see the operational readiness and reliability of the winter maintenance service for himself.
