2019 marks the year of our past and the future: Kverneland Group is proud to announce 140 years of existence, 140 years of collaborations and loyalty from our customers, dealers, importers, employees and suppliers that are connected to us. It is because of these relationships Kverneland Group has grown into becoming one of the key players in the Agricultural Implement Industry.
The history of Kverneland Group dates back to 1879 when founder, Ole Gabriel Kverneland, built his small forge in the village of Kvernaland, 25 kilometer outside of Stavanger, Norway. The company was at that time known as “O.G. Kvernelands Fabrik”, which manufactured scythes. From 1879 the company developed and specialised in horse powered Ploughs and Harrows.
Over decades, Kverneland Group has expanded considerably through several acquisitions of a number of manufacturers of agricultural implements. Today, the machines are sold under the well-known brands Kverneland and Vicon. In addition to this, Kverneland Group has a strong focus on the development and offering of sustainable, smart- and precision farming solutions.

The 140 years anniversary will be celebrated globally in several arenas throughout 2019 both internally and externally, in cooperation with the Kverneland dealers and distribution partners worldwide. The anniversary will also be a key element of Kverneland Group’s presence at the large international shows SIMA, Paris, 24th to 28th of February 2019 and Agritechnica, Hannover 10th to 16th of November 2019.
