AVR bvba

AVR’s aim is: producing robust, secure high-capacity harvesters that are able to deliver potatoes of excellent quality. the High-End machines. The ‘total cost of ownership’ has to be as low as possible. Quality, capacity and service are the key words here. AVR’s specialisations consist of harvesting potatoes on the one hand and soil cultivation before and after the planting of potatoes on the other hand.Actually, we yearly produce ca. 150 harvesters, zo`n 250 cultivators, and 100 haulm toppers.Year after year, AVR sees its turnover grow…. Therefore, it is not surprising that the green colour of AVR is more and more dominant on the fields.

Proudly AVR announces that  it becomes  the owner of the assets from Climax International bv. The assets were bought from Tal bv.  With this transaction AVR  acquires the stocks and the rights on Climax in-store equipment and Climax Solids Handling.  AVR is specialized in the development and manufacturing of machinery for potato cultivation. Climax has always been known as a manufacturer of in-store equipment for potatoes and for some time it is also known and specialized in trading all kinds of conveyors for bulk material.

Tal bv is satisfied that the activity will be continued and will be properly organized by AVR. It will increase the activity by selling the product via its strong sales network.  The lack of proper and available sales channels was for Climax International the main cause for not wanting to further develop this business.     The Climax customers know they can rely on the continuity and on a strong supplier having the necessary market knowledge to  continue the developments of the product.

Stefan Top, General Manager at AVR bvba: “this acquisition was an opportunity that we certainly did not want to miss.  After the acquisition of the planter activity from Underhaug, which made from AVR a full-liner in the field,  our customers and dealerships strongly insisted to finalize the full-line idea by offering also equipment to use in the storage.  AVR is a now a real full-liner, and now we can, through our sales network, offer our customers all the specific machinery they need for potato cultivation.”

AVR will continue to produce the in-store equipment  in Veendam.  The sales will be organized  from Roeselare.  AVR will make use of the existing sales channels of AVR and Climax. In the near future the service activities from the in-store equipment will also be organized from Roeselare.

The basis of the whole AVR selection lies in the division of Research and Development.
 
All developments are carried out in-house, whether it is a new prototype or a small adaptation to an existing machine. The knowledge about potato harvesters is essential here. Our researchers have a yearlong experience in this sector and often have an agricultural background.

The machines are designed in a modern way, with the help of 3D computer systems. New machines are fully developed on our computer screens and the assembly is optimized. The modularity of the harvesters is a guide line here. As such, machines can be finished taking into account the specific conditions and needs of the client.

An important objective of our R&D division is creating robust but very approachable and service-friendly machines. This leads to an open, comprehensive machine with low maintenance costs and a long lifespan, aimed at a High-End market position.
