Seed specialist will open new production site in Thuringia
Strong commitment to Thuringia as a place to do business: Hahn & Karl Saatenhandel GmbH from Bad Soden recently built a production, logistics and administrative center in Eisenberg, in eastern Thuringia.
The company has invested several million euros and created at least 10 new jobs. The center will be used not only to wholesale agricultural seeds but also to house a new production line for wild bird feed. “We picked Thuringia for its strong regional agricultural industry, highly skilled and motivated workforce, Eisenberg’s central location in Europe and the close, positive support we received from the state, including LEG,” explained Dr. Axel Kaske, Managing Director of Hahn & Karl. In addition to current sales markets such as Thuringia, Saxony and Bavaria, the company hopes to tap markets in Italy, Austria and Northern and Eastern Europe and make greater use of central Germany for seed production.back
