August Bruns Agricultural Machinery was founded in 1948 by August Bruns and with the help of his wife Hilda it was continuously developed in these difficult post-war-years.The company became one of the most known of its kind which soon expanded nationwide. Later on the two sons, Helmut and Walter got into business and learned the skills from their father. The company was turned over to them officially in 1983. Walter Bruns became head of the company after the early death of his brohter, Helmut Bruns, in 1989. The August Bruns Company also realized the importance of a good customer service at an early point and kept it that way ever since.
When August Bruns established our family business in August
1948, he laid the foundation for a company that would enjoy
continuous success to the present day. We have grown steadily
in the more than 60 years we have been in business. And as always,
the range of our products continues to reflect the needs
of our customers. We work exclusively with such internationally
leading manufacturers as CNH and KUHN, manufacturers you
can rely on – now and for many years to come.
A supremely motivated team
We owe our success to our supremely qualified and highly
motivated team. More than 160 skilled employees work for us.
The BRUNS Group as a whole employs more than 330 people.
Whether it’s our agricultural machinery mechanics, metal
workers, and logistics experts or our replacement parts service,
maintenance, and consulting staffs – every one of our
employees is a highly-trained specialist in his field.
Today we are an internationally active company managed by
Walter and Andreas Bruns. With locations in Cloppenburg,
Bösel, Lindern, Aurich, Rhede, Langenstein, Klein Bünzow
and Haren, we offer the advantage of close proximity to our
customers whose many and varied needs we are able to meet in
From the very beginning we have remained true to the high
standards we set for ourselves. We make no compromises when
it comes to the quality of the equipment we produce and sell.
Our products and services are subject to rigorous monitoring for
compliance with the most advanced standards.
No machine will ever leave our shop without the required Bruns Final Inspection.
Constant innovation , renewals and foundings of new branches in various cities alligned the company for the future. It is highly supported in doing so by its staff. The August Bruns Company would like to thank the entire staff, of the present and the past days for all their help. A big thank you also goes out to our partners and brand-manufacturers who have kept a close relationship to August Bruns Company over the years.The good team-work and the mutual trust of all our suppliers contributed substantially to the success of the company.
