75 years red impact

2023 marks our 75th anniversary. It all started with the introduction of our finger wheel rake in 1948. Thanks to our local farmers, Lely Centers, partners and employees we have reached this milestone. We're grateful and proud.

In this jubilee year, we look forward to share that pride. Innovations and milestones from the past, driven by our people, embraced by our farmers. Let's celebrate our history, experience the present and build towards the future.

In the spotlight

Lely Germany

When it all started with a dream of two brothers in Maassluis, no-one could have imagined that anno 2023, Lely is active in over 50 countries. We are truly inspired by the passion and commitment of our employees, farmers and our partners worldwide.

We would love to share this international vibe with you. Every month, we will give the stage to colleagues from a different region.

We focus on the story of Lely Germany which has been merged with the Lely activities in Austria, Switzerland and tiny Liechtenstein since 2019. More than 50 employees, of which around 15 also run their own farm, service the regional farmers every day. Starting with the installation of the first Lely Astronaut in the early 90s, 2023 not only marks the installation of the 1000th Lely Discovery Collector but also the launch of the very-first ‘Listen to Lely’-podcast.
