About us


The name FELLA has been a byword for innovative agricultural machinery from Franconia for over 90 years. FELLA-Werke GmbH of Feucht near Nuremberg currently holds a top position in the demanding crop harvesting machinery sector. With a comprehensive range of drum and disc mower units, tedders and rakes, FELLA is in an excellent position to enjoy sustainable growth on the world market. Since early 2011, FELLA has been fully incorporated into the AGCO Corporation and will continue to drive forward the specialisation of harvest technology for them. The Feucht site, near Nuremberg, has therefore immediately become AGCO's centre of excellence for green forage harvesting in Europe.
