AGCO FUSE Technology initiative taps TPA as supplier
Topcon Precision Agriculture (TPA) announced that it is now recognized as a cornerstone supplier to AGCO as its Advanced Technology Solutions (ATS) division launches its FUSE Technology initiative.
Topcon has maintained a relationship with AGCO ATS on a variety of on- and off-board technologies since 2008; from autosteering products, such as TPA’s System 150 and System 350, to more integrated autosteering components such as VarioGuide for the Fendt brand and now AutoGuide 3000 for Challenger, Massey-Ferguson and Valtra tractor brands.
Albert Zahalka, TPA division president, said, “TPA also continues to be the selected manufacturer of autosteering, in-cab displays such as the C2100 and C3000, plus it is part of the collaboration resulting in AGCO’s Ag Command telematics system as well as other individual components utilized by various AGCO vehicle brands and types.”
“We are pleased to continue our long and valued working relationship with Topcon and we look forward to the integration of various TPA systems via AGCO’s FUSE Technologies initiative,” said Matt Rushing, AGCO vice president, product management, Global ATS and EFG.
“We sincerely appreciate the business relationship with AGCO that continues to thrive as precision ag technology becomes increasingly accepted by customers and is integrated into vehicle platforms by leading OEM manufacturers such as AGCO,” said Ray O’Connor, Topcon Positioning Systems president and CEO.
