The Reiff contracting company has its headquarters in the northern part of Luxembourg. The friendly family-run business has grown rapidly in the past years. With tremendous commitment, the family has managed a lot with their staff. A reliable fleet of Fendt tractors has contributed their success.
Luxembourg, with 130,000 hectares of agricultural land, may only have a fraction of the farm land of its neighbour Germany, but regions such as the north of the country are very intensively used for farming. The Reiff contracting company is located at the edge of the small town of Troisvierges, 10 km from the Belgian border. The family-run business inaugurated its new business location at the beginning of 2014. The previous business, about 2 km away, became too big for the premises in the village. The enterprise is managed by 28-year-old Jeff Reiff. His mother Josette is responsible for bookkeeping and accounting, his father Josy takes care of the organisation of the workshop and the new construction.
Besides the traditional contract work with combines, forage harvesters, loading wagons and balers, the services offered also include earth-moving and municipal operations. Their own farm also has 450 ha for the cultivation of potatoes and grain. All in all, this is quite a bit of work for the 16 permanent employees and the tractors. Reiff has been relying on Fendt for many years already, which any guest can quickly see during a tour through the huge, cantilever machine hall. Several different Fendt generations are in service here: from the Favorit 500 and 800 to the latest models from the Fendt 800 Vario and 900 Vario high-horsepower tractor series. But a true cult tractor, such as the Fendt tool carrier or the first models of the 926 Vario tractors with continuously variable transmission still have their place in daily business. The mix of several decades of tractor design from Marktoberdorf fits to Josy Reiff’s philosophy. “In our workshop hall, we can complete most repairs on tractors quickly and with short distances. The spare parts stock is well-organised. Even whole engines can be replaced within a few hours, depending on the case,” he says proudly during a tour of the workshop. With 15,000 hours, some of the tractors already have a proud history at the Reiff contracting company.
The operators at Reiff are proud of their well-cared for machines.
