Welcome to Plasson SA

Plasson had humble beginnings in 1964. A far-sighted group of members realised that as farming was becoming more dependent on technology, they should modernise and enhance their labour methods.

Industry would supply the answer. We decided to use our own knowledge and experience to produce advanced agricultural equipment by injection moulding, and we called our enterprise Plasson.

Since those early days Plasson has grown, innovated, and built up a world-wide network of subsidiaries and distributors.

The Plasson team works consistently to keep its reputation as a market leader, by innovation, quality and the variety of its products. We take pride in being able to supply the market’s demands almost immediately.

From its beginning, Plasson promised to take the lead in offering a reliable sales and marketing network and is fulfilling this mission on a daily basis.
