Hanover, Germany – German agricultural machinery and equipment distributor Menke Agrar has reached an agreement with ContiTech AG for the sale of the company’s drive belts.
Part of the Agravis Group, Menke Agrar is one of the top independent providers of replacement parts and accessories for agricultural machinery, with sales channels in Germany and the rest of Europe, ContiTech said in a 19 Feb statement.
The Hanover-based distributor registered sales of €6.6 billion in 2019, according to ContiTech.
The company will be distributing Continental’s Agridur portfolio of belts, which are specifically made for the agricultural sector and were launched in 2016.
