GEA has extended its cooperation agreement with Kerbl, a leading supplier of agricultural products for livestock farmers, until 2028. The partnership, which has already been in place for nine years, will thereby be extended to further countries as well as new products as part of the GEA Exclusive Program.
This means that GEA customers worldwide will be able to obtain high-quality and compatible supplies for their dairy production operations more quickly from a single point of contact in the future. In addition, attractive prices can be guaranteed worldwide due to a high in-house production rate as well as direct sales on the part of Kerbl.
"We are pleased to have achieved an important step concerning our services for our customers with the extension and expansion of the cooperation," says Liang Cheng, chief service officer, GEA Farm Technologies. "The GEA Exclusive Program continues to play an important role in providing our customers with all the products they need centrally for their daily operations. In addition, together with Kerbl, we can ensure that the supplies meet the highest quality requirements and are compatible with our equipment and solutions," explains Cheng.
Throughout the cooperation, GEA and Kerbl plan to expand the product portfolio to enable milk producers to operate efficiently as well as hygienically and comfortably. "Kerbl's product range currently includes around 10,000 products for all agricultural needs," explains Albert Kerbl, managing director, GEA. "Thanks to our international positioning and production, together with GEA we can react quickly to the needs of customers and markets and act flexibly," says Kerbl.
The GEA Exclusive Program has been set up for selected GEA distribution partners. Through this, farmers can centrally purchase GEA-designed accessories for livestock, milk production, and calf rearing, for example. All products are available through GEA directly or through the responsible GEA dealers in the respective countries.
