Regional manufacturer contracts with international firm

Agile Manufacturing of Worthing has entered into an agreement with CLAAS of America to provide tractor preparation services for North America. Agile will manufacture and prepare machines for shipment from the company’s new Worthing plant, just south of Sioux Falls at the I-29 exit.


CLAAS is a global leader in tractor sales with much of their manufacturing centered in France and Germany. Their XERION 4 x 4 tractor was recently modified to handle the demands of large-scale production in the North American market. CLAAS is best known in North America for their premium lines of JAGUAR forage harvesters and LEXION combines. The expansion of tractors into the North American market helps round out their offering as a long-line manufacturer.


Agile Manufacturing designs, manufactures and markets material handling equipment for agricultural and industrial use. These products range from front end loaders, grapples, buckets and other material handling attachments sold under the product names Miller Loaders and GrabTec through dealers across North America.
