Hermes story started in 1975, when Alfred Bonmassar and Wilfrid Kröss decided to produce hammer mowers and mulching machines. The decision came to respond to the need for strong and efficient machines to solve the problems caused by grass and weeds in orchards and vineyards. To meet these needs Mr Kröss designed and built machines that at that time were considered innovative for both their design and their functionalities. Thanks to its pioneering work, Hermes soon became a solid and reliable point of reference and a leading company in this field.
State of the art solutions for modern companies involved in fruit growing and viticulture
Since it was founded 40 years ago, Hermes has kept working side by side with farmers, constantly improving and developing new specialised machines for orchards and vineyards. Right from the start, in addition to cutting and mulching machines, Hermes offered the renowned Pluk-O-Trak conveyor belt picking machines. In 1975, Alfred Bonmassar, undisputed pioneer in this field, sold his first conveyor belt fruit picking machine, at a time when mechanic fruit picking was a completely new concept.
Mr Bonmassar believed in the potential of these machines since the start. His forward thinking turned out to be a great success, to the point that Hermes expanded its range of conveyor belt picking machines and in 1997 introduced the innovative Tecno-fruit series.
Today Hermes is a point of reference in Europe in the conveyor belt picking machine industry. Hermes stands out for the quality of its machines as well as the professionalism and unmatched experience in this field.
Jascha Babette Bonmassar, daughter of one of Hermes’s founders, has now joined the company and is involved daily in accomplishing its mission: producing innovative and great-quality machines for orchards and vineyards by promoting modern management and production processes based on 40 years of experience in the industry.
