ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) German farm equipment manufacturer Geringhoff has rolled the first new corn headers off the assembly line from its new St. Cloud manufacturing plant.

Geringhoff North America President and CEO Joe Jandrisch says a handful of machines from a "pilot run" are now being used in areas of the country where the harvest is already underway.

He says regular production will begin in late October or early November, "once all the small details are worked out."

Jandirsch says they're pleased with the selection of St. Cloud as the site of the plant. He says they've been able to "convince some  great people to join our organization," and says the quality of the parts they're receiving from their regional suppliers has been "exceptional," in many cases surpassing the quality of components they see out of their suppliers in Germany.
