The Mechanisation department was established in 1978. With the rising capital costs of tractors, harvesters, trucks, agricultural machinery and implements and the substantial contribution the use of these goods add to production costs, VKB on 1 March 1978 started putting measures in place for more specialised attention to the mechanical needs of its members.
VKB currently has 12 Mechanisation workshops and parts retail outlets which are serviced by 11 whole goods marketers.
