Valtra Inc. develops, manufactures, markets and services Valtra tractors. Valtra is the leading tractor manufacturer in the Nordic countries and the second most popular brand in Latin America. The company has manufactured tractors since 1951, but its historic roots reach back until 1832.
Valtra tractors are built in the most advanced factories in the industry at Suolahti, Finland, and Mogi das Cruzes, Brazil. Valtra tractors are now sold in over 75 countries worldwide. Valtra is a worldwide brand of the AGCO Corporation, the third-largest manufacturer of agricultural equipment in the world.
Valtra tractors are individually made to order and each one is custom built to meet the requirements of the customer. In cooperation with their authorised Valtra dealer, customers configure a tractor that exactly matches their needs.
The order is forwarded directly to the factory, where the tractor is manufactured according to the personalised specifications. The completed tractor and additionally specified equipment are delivered to the customer or the dealer directly from the factory.
Many customers also take the opportunity to observe their very own tractor being built at the factory.
Valtra’s operations are focused on individual customer requirements and, unlike other major tractor manufacturers, builds machines against a customer’s orders and to their individual specification. To meet these needs the customer, together with the sales person, decides on the tractor specification, choosing from Valtra’s à la carte selection which offers up to half-a-million different combinations.
This building against a confirmed customer order represents the future today, is highly efficient and effective and benefits both the customer and manufacturer. Valtra also offers customers the unique opportunity to visit their Suolahti factory and observe their very own tractors being built. Thousands of interested customers accept this very special invitation each year.
Today’s Valtra tractors represent the culmination of two traditions: Finland’s Valmet and Sweden’s Volvo BM, itself an offshoot from Munktell. The roots of both Valtra and Volvo go back to Eskilstuna Mekaniska Werkstad, founded by Theofron Munktell in 1832.
From a very modest beginning we are proud to have grown into an internationally recognised brand. Valtra’s pedigree is based on hard work and perseverance plus a degree of originality and audacity.
This presentation gives you a complete overview of Valtra's history, from the company roots in Sweden and Finland to the present day.
