Visit of the Mollihof Jakob Museum in Grüningen
At the invitation of the company Mollihof Jakob, the ambassador visited Mollihof Jakob’s facility in Grüningen on Tuesday, August 3, 2020, exhibiting its impressive fleet of agricultural machinery – with some rarities – as well as relics from the former German Democratic Republic. Before the fall of the Berlin Wall, this family business had indeed specialized in the manufacture of material transporters (officially called Geräteträger – GT) which replaced tractors and modernized the mechanization of agriculture in general. Today, the Molli company is completely rebuilding the old equipment that is still useful in agriculture, replacing each old component with a more modern one. Some of these machines are resold to interested farmers, and the family business also encourages partnerships with foreign countries for the assembly or manufacture of these machines on their territory.
