Krone NA held an open house on March 12 in Reno, Nevada, in honor of their new Western Region facility.  The 50,000 square foot facility was opened in December 2009 to service Krone Dealers in the Western region of the United States.

It serves as the main parts distribution point for these dealers as well as a training facility.

The event was attended by approximately 75 Krone dealers and customers from across the Western US.  Representing Krone were Bernard Krone - CEO and Director of Agricultural Machinery, Rusty Fowler – CEO Krone NA, Wilhelm Voss – Managing Director of Sales and Marketing, George Kilbride – Manager Western Region and other Krone employees.

The open house allowed for Krone dealers and customers to come and visit the new facility and spend time with their Krone representatives. Offices were opened and food was served in the expansive warehouse.

Machines were on display including the BiG X 1000 Forage Harvester, the worlds largest forage harvester, and the BiG Pack 1290 HDP that will be demonstrated in the BiG Pack Road Show starting at the end of this month.
