Farmet has been successfully operating in the Czech market already for 26 years and the same birthday is also celebrated by our first and to a certain extent crucial product, the Kompaktomat pre-sowing combinator. The impulse for creating the pre-sowing combinator was the demand for special, combined machines that would be able to make pre-sowing preparation more efficient, save time for the agriculturists, and also decrease costs.
1994 - series of produced Kompaktomat pre-sowing combinators
In a small repair shop in Eastern Bohemia, a verification series of a three-metre combined machine for soil processing in a limited number of ten pieces was therefore created, designed for Roudnické strojírny, a large producer of agricultural machines at that time. It was a key job for our small company back then. After delivering the first pieces, Roudnické strojírny doubted the merchantability of the machine and accepted it quite coldly. One of the reasons was probably also that the idea for the creation of this machine did not come from their heads. At Farmet, however, we saw the situation differently and immediately started testing and demonstrating the machine ourselves. The first machines were sold very quickly, which resulted in the original development prototype workshop becoming an autonomous manufacturer of agricultural equipment with own trade. The Kompaktomat managed to establish itself quickly and very well in all markets it has been delivered to. Thanks to its versatility in all soil conditions, simplicity of use and adjustment, Kompaktomat has become a phenomenon that lasts.
