KEMPER, the No. 1 in row-independent harvesting headers. For us, “Made in Germany” is more than just a label. On a site extending over 100,000 m2 in the Münsterland region, KEMPER employs a staff of about 335. Product development, customer care and production are closely linked in our company. This is what guarantees continuous further product development. Since 2006 the KEMPER headers are build on an assembly line. The so called `Demand Flow Concept` guarantees maximum flexibility. All models and sizes can be built in a mixed mode according to incoming customer orders thanks to the high flexibility of the workers. Every machine that leaves the assembly line is tested thoroughly before being shipped to the customer. For more than 100 years we have produced and marketed the best possible technology for professional users – worldwide.
KEMPER - a factory with long tradition in the Münsterland region. Know-how and experience provide the basis for innovative solutions and superior quality.
