Indian tractor manufacturer TAFE (Tractors and Farm Equipment Limited) has announced an investment in a new research & development center, TAFE Advanced AG Solutions, in Telford, UK.
According to a press release from Invest Telford, the investment was part of a collaboration with Invest Telford, Harper Adams University and the Agri-EPI Centre.
Jane Lycett, International Business Development Manager of Agri-Epi Centre said in the press release: "In 2018, TAFE became our first tenants at the Agri-EPI Centre Midlands Agri-tech Innovation Hub (located on the Harper Adams University campus), and we have been happy to collaborate with them ever since. Following the initial phase of R&D, the team returned to India. Then in 2021-22 – at the point of deciding to create a permanent UK R&D facility – they based their team at the Midlands Hub until they grew to a scale which made a move to Ni.PARK the next logical step — which is great to see."
