AMAZONE has a very long and rich history, being founded in 1883. Many people ask where this German manufacturer got its name.
Over 135 years ago Heinrich Dreyer asked a dear friend of his what he should name his best invention; a grain cleaning machine. He told his professor friend that he wanted the name to represent his machine. It had to be a strong yet beautiful name. It took awhile for them to think of a name worthy of his machine, but in the end both men came upon the AMAZONE, named after the strong and beautiful amazon women of Greek mythology.
This is the story that Heinrich Dreyer's grandson, Klaus Dreyer, loves to tell. AMAZONE has fought through many hardships and have always come out stronger on the other end. To see a brief chronicle of their interesting history, click here.
It has been many years since the founding of AMAZONE, but it is still run by the original Dryer family; Christian Dreyer and Justus Dreyer. AMAZONE is headquartered in Gaste, Germany though it currently has several manufacturing sites across Europe. To visit the official website of AMAZONE click here.
