Krone North America brings manufacturing headquarters to Shelbyville
SHELBYVILLE, Ind. — Krone, a global manufacturer focused on innovative hay-and-forage farming equipment, will relocate its North American corporate headquarters to Shelbyville, Indiana. The move is part of a comprehensive strategic plan by Krone to grow its business in North America.
The 110-year-old company, which is privately held and owned by Germany-based Bernard Krone Holding GmbH & Co. KG, will invest $12.5 million to construct a 200,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility. In addition to the corporate headquarters, the complex, located on 40 acres in central Indiana, will also feature a distribution center, showroom, and training facility. The transition will take place over the next three years, while Krone continues to prioritize exceptional customer service for its dealers.
“As Krone has continued its growth in North America, we realized the need for a larger, specially built facility to bring together our corporate headquarters, distribution center and training staff in a new state-of-the-art building centrally located in North America for our growing customer base,” said Krone President and CEO Tommy Jones. “We were also drawn by the availability of a strong base of ag-focused talent, who will supplement our industry-leading internal staff.”
