Located in the north of Picardy (Northern France), the GODÉ Company performed many innovations in relation with the evolutions of agriculture industry (most of them patented).
Within the GODÉ Company, the passion of the harvest is transmitted from generation to generation, people always adapt themselves and anticipate arrival of new technologies. If Francis Godé has the feeling for innovation, it is certainly because he comes after his grandfather, who created "the SPECIFIC" in 1939 (the first cereal screening machine), and it is also a heritage of his creative father, inventor of a grubbing plough for beets.
For more than 60 years, the GODÉ Company has been trading combine harvesters and has been ensuring the after-sales service. After having been a dealer of trade mark such as MASSEY HARRIS, MASSEY FERGUSON, then CLAAS in 1987 (in the year 1996, Pierre and Francis Godé sold more than 65 new and second-hand combine harvesters and occasion), then Francis Godé decided to centralize its activity on the manufacture and the design of farm equipments.
The first steps of “Minibatt” come from collaboration with the CIRAD and the CEMAGREF for the development of a Stripper for field crop. “Minibatt” stands for the French words “Mini-batteuse” that means mini combine harvester.
