Working with Us
Landpower, together with the CLAAS Harvest Centre network, is a leading provider of agricultural machinery throughout New Zealand and Australia and enjoys brand partnerships spanning more than 40 years with premium manufacturers from across the world. Relationships are at the heart of the work we do at Landpower and CLAAS Harvest Centre. As 100% family-owned business, we deliver integrated machinery solutions including combine, forage and potato harvesters, tractors, hay and forage equipment, spreaders, sprayers and telehandlers.
We have selected brands that specifically meet the needs of New Zealand and Australian farmers, contractors and growers, from a range of market leading manufacturers that provide agricultural machinery developed for specific farming activities.
Landpower employs over 100 staff across a range of sales, marketing, technical support, parts and administrative roles in Christchurch and Melbourne. A further 300 people are employed across the CLAAS Harvest Centre distribution network.
Like our customers, we understand what running a family business requires. Our supplier companies, our network of dealers, and Landpower, are all family owned businesses. This commonality between our businesses guarantees like-minded and value oriented partnerships.
Culture and Values
We understand the power of relationships – with colleagues, with our customers, with local communities and within our team. We have three core values that shape our culture and the way we do business:
In it Together
We have our customers' best interests at heart. We collaborate with, trust and support each other to deliver better outcomes for farmers and for our business.
We are a relationship business where integrity is everything. We build trust and loyalty by doing what we say we will do, every time.
We are a business that looks ahead. We continue to learn, improve and innovate to deliver future success.
We care about the health and wellness of our People. The agricultural industry is renowned for its seasonal challenges which means that huge demands are often made of many of our customer facing employees during the busy harvest season.
To support our employees during these times, and all year round, we offer a range of wellness initiatives and we work hard to deliver the best services for our people.
We also offer a Landpower Plus lifestyle discount scheme which offers discounts on everyday expenses like petrol, discounts on gift purchases and vouchers as well as household expenses like Health Insurance.
Training & Career development opportunities
'Keeping Ahead' is a critical value in our organisation and we are committed to the ongoing training and development of our people to ensure that they are at the forefront of their fields. We deliver job-specific training and development which helps our people to achieve their personal professional goals and career aspirations. Examples of this training include multilevel technical service training delivered in Australia, New Zealand and Europe, in-depth product and sales training designed to improve product knowledge and soft sales skills, leadership training through LMA and many competency based training modules.
Health & Safety
Project Zero Harm is our overarching philosophy for the health and safety program at Landpower & the CLAAS Harvest Centre Network. The company is committed to a zero harm environment and has established a number of initiatives to support the safety and wellbeing of employees, contractors, customers and suppliers.
As part of Project Zero Harm, our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) provides a professional and confidential counselling service for all employees. This can be accessed by any employee who is experiencing any personal or work related difficulties to provide support and to help.
