The Spanish Manufacturers – Exporters Association of Agricultural Machinery and its Components, Greenhouses and Crop Protection, Irrigation Systems, Livestock Equipment, Nutrition and Animal Health, Forestry Machinery, Biomass and Post-Harvesting Equipment – AGRAGEX – was founded in 1978 with the primary goal of promoting the sales in the foreign markets of its associated companies.
AGRAGEX – a non-profit organization – is currently comprised by 113 associated companies spread out across the whole of Spain and responsible for 90% of the Spanish exports within the sector. In order to achieve its objectives, AGRAGEX carries out a number of different promotional activities emphasizing the followings: Direct Trade Delegations, Group Participation in Major International Trade Shows, Organization of Foreign Buyers Delegations to Spain, market studies and analysis, channelling of enquiries and requests as well as a variety of advertising activities in trade magazines specialized in our sectors, mailings, catalogues, etc. We also cooperate with the Government in the dissemination and advising about the issues related to the internationalization of the Spanish agricultural sector. All these activities are financed through Members´ annual fees, assistance from ICEX, Spain Trade and Investment, the Directorate-General of Foreign Trade (a subdivision of the Ministry of Economic Affairs) and the agreements reached with some of the Autonomous Communities together with the AGRAGEX self-management. This General AGRAGEX catalogue is the result of the effort of all the companies appearing on it. It is something to be proud of and also an encouragement for the Association and the entire Spanish Exporters network. During the life time of this catalogue AGRAGEX, in 2018 , will celebrate its XL anniversary. What began in 1978 as an answer for the necessities of a few companies to export today has become a reference for the Spanish exporters. AGRAGEX is promoting and publicizing the “MARCA ESPAÑA” as a producer of equipments and machinery with an advanced technology.
