If you want to be a leader, you must keep running.”

He wanted to be a surgeon, one with technical abilities. He became a pioneer in agricultural technology and, with his company CLAAS, defined his own era. The importance of Helmut Claas extends far beyond the family business, because an attitude like his has always spurred progress – and will continue to do so. Perhaps the most famous words of the eternal forward thinker remain the standard for the future of the CLAAS brand.
