Decades of research and experience are the solid basis for a product range with which CLAAS tackles the ever increasing requirements of a growing global population and dwindling resources and therefore optimises the harvest. CLAAS guarantees the transparency of global processes and product quality assurance using change and approval processes from ILC’s 4PEP Engineering Change Management.
