The Claas brothers

A family of pioneers

Behind a great story, there are usually some remarkable personalities. In the case of CLAAS, these were the four brothers, August, Franz, Theo and Bernhard Claas, who together founded the company in 1913. Armed with the qualities of inventiveness, openness to new ideas and persistence, they developed what started as a family business into one of the world’s leading agricultural machinery businesses.
